Tax Credits on Energy Star Rated Windows

 RTEmagicC_NFRC_Casement_PEAKPERF_01_jpg      

What criteria does the ENERGY STAR Program use for Window and Door Performance?

The first energy performance rating is the U-Factor. U-Factor measures heat transfer through a window and tells you how well the window insulates. The lower the U-factor, the better the window insulates. During winter months, the lower a windows’ overall U-factor, the less heat you will lose through that window, and the less energy you will use to heat your home.
The second performance rating is Solar Heat Gain Coefficient. This measures how much solar heat is admitted into your home through the window, and tells you how well the window blocks heat caused by sunlight. The lower the SHGC, the better the window is at blocking heat. During summer months, a lower SHGC means less solar radiation is admitted through your windows, keeping your home cooler, and saving you money on running your air conditioner.

 

Rusco Windows & Doors has Thermal Industries windows on display in their Westmont Showrooms.  Window replacement can be confusing. Working with clients on the correct windows for their home is what Rusco is known for. Get your 2013 Tax credit by chosing Energy Star rated windows.

Pella Windows promotes National Window Safety Week, observed April 7 – 13

Optional Remote control operates from Pella Windows

 

 

 

 

 

 

Window safety tips from Pella  Windows:

  • Keep furniture like beds or dressers away from windows. Furniture placed directly under a window can create an enticement for a child to climb and the potential to fall.
  • Keep children’s play safely away from windows, doors and balconies to help prevent an accidental fall or injury.
  • Remember, insect screens are designed to provide ventilation and to keep insects out, NOT to prevent falls. For added safety in children’s bedrooms, consider installing window guards or window fall prevention devices that meet American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards.
  • Window treatments with traditional cords can contribute to childhood injuries. For added protection, choose blinds and shades with no room-side cords like Pella Designer Series® windows and patio doors, which feature between-the-glass blinds, shades and decorative panels. Pella® 350 Series patio doors also offer between-the-glass window fashions with no roomside cords.
  • Plant soft shrubs, like boxwood, or yews, under exterior windows that might be used as an emergency escape route to help soften a fall.
  • While spring cleaning, do a “clutter sweep” and remove tripping hazardsnear exit routes from windows, doors or balconies.
  • Do not allow children to jump on beds or other furniture, especially near windows.
  • Talk to older children about the dangers of playing near windows.
