Windows bring light, air and fresh breezes into your home. Investing in the right windows is important: An ideal set of new windows for your home achieves the proper balance of size and insulation properties, so you can see the outside and bring in plenty of light while staying comfortable.
At our home center in Easton, PA, we can help you choose the right stylish windows for your home, whether they’re for new construction or you’re renovating your existing home. We specialize in kitchen and bath setups, but we have windows available for any living space.
The rate of heat loss from a building is indicated by its U-factor, sometimes called the U-value. For windows, U-factor ratings are generally between 0.20 and 1.20. The lower the U-value is, the better it is at insulating because it has a better resistance to heat flow.
The solar heat gain coefficient, or SHGC, indicates how well a window blocks heat from the sun. The SHGC measures the fraction of solar radiation admitted through the window, absorbed and subsequently released inward to the rest of the house. The values for SHGC are expressed between 0 and 1, and like the window’s U-value, a low SHGC is generally better because it means the window transmits less solar heat.
Other performance ratings include visible transmittance and air leakage ratings. At Piscitello Home Center, we can help you interpret those ratings and decide which option is best for your project.
