Energy Saving Glass Installation on the Gulf Coast

Does Energy Saving Glass Really Improve Window Performance?

At The Window Source of the Gulf Coast, our windows are designed to withstand both extreme heat and cold. They provide comfort throughout all four seasons and enhance energy efficiency. This ensures not just a cozy living space, but also long-term financial savings.

Need evidence? Our windows not only meet, but often surpass the specifications for ENERGY STAR® Version 6.0 across all 50 states. In fact, with certain glass options, we outperform the Gulf Coast Zone requirements. Here are four typical ratings you’ll find on windows certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC):

  • U-Factor – A measure of the rate of heat flow through a window. A lower U-Factor indicates a higher performing window that can help reduce heating and cooling costs.
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) – The amount of solar radiation allowed to pass through a window. The lower the number, the less solar heat gain and UV rays the window permits to enter.
  • Visible Light Transmittance (VT) – Ranging from 0 – 1, visible transmittance is a measure of how much light passes through the window. The higher the number, the more light that can pass through.
  • Condensation Rating (CR) – CR measures how well a window resists the formation of condensation on the inside surface. CR is expressed as a number between 1 – 100.The higher the number, the better a product is able to resist condensation.

All Energy Miser Options Are UV Resistant

Damaging UV rays can have a greater impact on your home than you may realize. Without appropriate protection on your windows, these rays can diminish the color and value of items within your home. 

Our windows with UV protection serve as a shield for your home, filtering out harmful ultraviolet rays while still allowing ample light to enter. With the added Low-E coating on our windows, they not only perform better but also substantially decrease sun damage to your interiors, ensuring your furniture, carpets, and flooring remain vibrant and pristine. Plus, these energy-efficient features lead to cost savings for you!

We just had The Window Source install 6 new windows and a sliding door. They look fantastic! All the windows are triple pane and are very efficient and high quality. The fact that they were about 1/2 the price of the competition was a sweet bonus! Aaron and his team did a great job and showed up on time and were very professional. And no high pressure sales tactics – very refreshing. I would recommend The window Source to all my friends and family.
Andrew Ehlert
I am so happy with our new windows and new door. Ben installed everything for us, and he did an amazing job! I cannot say enough about the installer, he was on time, professional, fast, and his quality of work is superb . His work ethic is none like I’ve ever seen. We will definitely be using The Window Source again in the future!
Mary Shopshear
Initially, Adam Fewins was thorough and knowledgeable. The owner, Aaron was extremely generous. As a customer, David made sure I was taken care of. I'm 110% satisfied with everything! Down to workmanship, Ben Ryman was amazing installing my windows. I felt very comfortable with everyone who was Involved. If you want excellent quality windows, customer service and installation for the price, I highly recommend The Window Source.
Deanna Liddy
Great experience even given the unpredictable product delivery industry this past couple of years. Lots of communication and they were there when they said they would be and finished on time. Ben installed the windows and was polite, efficient and so knowledgeable. Professionalism from top to bottom!
Jeanne Marriott
I had the windows replaced in the whole house. We were replacing original windows with serious seal failure and terrible fogging. It was incredible to see the difference once the new windows were installed. Our installer, Ben, accomplished the job in 2 days on his own. He worked hard and was very particular on making sure the slider door was well installed. We are very happy with our choice to go with The Window Source.
