Benefits of energy-saving glass
Energy-saving glass reflects long-wave heat rays in the direction of their radiation, that is, it helps to ensure that the window will not let heat into the street in winter, and in the summer it will keep the room cool, reflecting the heat. Such properties of the window structure are imparted by low-emission energy-saving glass (I-glass) made with a special silver coating.
Benefits of energy-saving glass:
- provides sufficient illumination of the room;
- improves thermal insulation in winter;
- protects the room from heating in the summer;
- saves furniture and interior items from burnout;
If energy-saving glass is not enough, then the glass packet chamber is filled with argon, which increases the thermal insulation properties of the window (energy-saving window). It should be noted that argon is not a combustible gas and is safe for humans. A two-chamber double-glazed window with energy-saving glass will be the maximum protection against heat loss at home.
As you know, the most effective are double-glazed windows with energy-saving glass filled with argon.
It should be noted that the use of argon in double-glazed windows with ordinary glass is not advisable, since its effectiveness in this case is weak, but is enhanced in double-glazed windows with I-glass.
If you replace all the usual double-glazed windows in the house with double-glazed windows with energy-saving glasses, this will save us up to 35% on heating per year. Buying such an energy-saving window will not cost much more, but these costs will pay off in just two to three months of operation.
The second factor that has a significant impact on the energy efficiency of the window is the window profile. To reduce heat loss it is very important to have a good, warm profile with an installation depth, preferably at least 70 mm, and an indicator of heat transfer resistance as close as possible to 0.8 m² ° ° C / W. When using thin profiles, the energy loss is significant. In frosty weather near the window it may even seem that it is “blowing” from the window, but in fact it isotherms pass through the profile or slope without air exchange.
When installing windows, inexperienced people undeservedly do not pay attention to the importance of warming slopes, but in vain. Firstly, during the installation of the structure by the installer, the substitution profile must be insulated, otherwise, frost can even occur in the frost from the inside of the window at the junction of the window sill. Secondly, the installation of the window should be carried out using steam and waterproofing materials to protect the foam from decomposition. This installation method in our company is called "Standard-A". Thirdly, through microcracks that may occur during the dismantling of the old window, the cold will not necessarily penetrate the room through the not always thick layer of foam. In order to prevent this from happening, after installing the windows using steam and waterproofing materials, it is necessary to insulate the slopes.
