WINDOWS

“DunRite was my third quote, after disappointing quotes from a local home improvement store and another installer. The rates they had quoted were bloated with unnecessary lifetime free replacement warranties and unimpressive or pushy salespeople.

From measuring and quote to leaving a quality job spotlessly cleaned up, this experience has been exactly as promised. Plus, the prices were fantastic! One window came defective from the manufacturer, but they handled it seamlessly and quickly. I highly recommend them.

They installed nine low-e windows, and a set of french doors with built-in mini-blinds and a pet door on my patio.”

HIRE AGAIN? YES.

ENERGY EFFICIENT LOW-E WINDOWS

Whether you purchase vinyl, wood or aluminium  windows, each comes in varying degrees of energy efficiency. It’s determined by the type of frame material, number of glass panes, whether gas insulation is sandwiched between the layers of glass, and film or coatings on the glass. (Learn more here.)

Low-e, energy efficient windows can save quite a bit on air conditioning bills, thanks to their ability to reflect heat and keep it from entering a home.

It’s useful to know that low-e and energy efficiency are not exactly the same thing. Low-e glass adds to how energy efficient a window is, but not every energy efficient window includes low-e glass.

Low-e windows have glass treated with a low-emmissive  film to reflect heat. There are varying levels of energy efficiency and low-e glass treatments, so it’s important to discuss it with the installer before purchase, and look at the energy efficiency rating of the window you are considering.
