An energy efficient window is one that helps to minimise the use of artificial heating and cooling in a building. Technological progress in the last 25 years has made it possible to design windows which insulate against heat and cold up to four times better than conventional windows.
What makes a window energy efficient?
Windows are made up of various components such as the glass, frame and hardware all acting together to provide a certain level of performance. Those components that provide substantial protection from heat gain and heat loss and reduce the energy consumed by the whole building are considered energy efficient.
