Understanding Energy-Efficient Windows and Doors

December 07, 2015

There are many window and door style options today. Nevertheless, most homeowners place huge importance on energy efficiency. Energy-efficient windows and doors are vital in keeping a home insulated properly. Moreover, these help lower energy costs by minimizing the risk of energy loss.


As the premier provider of doors and windows in Albany, NY, Huff ‘N Puff understands that energy efficiency is more important than ever to homeowners in upstate New York. That is why we make every effort to provide energy-efficient products. From the style to materials that we use, we’ve got you covered when it comes to making your home more energy-efficient.

What Makes Windows and Doors Energy-Efficient?

Energy-efficient materials, especially windows, are crucial to maintaining your home’s comfort during the coldest and hottest months. Here are some of the factors that make windows and doors energy-efficient:

  • Number of glass panes – Modern windows have either two or three glass panes. Some people think that the more glass panes their windows or doors have, the better. Keep in mind that this is not always the case. For your doors and windows in Albany, talk to the local expert, Huff ‘N Puff, to determine the right choice for your budget.
  • Low-E coatings – Low-E glass coatings can reduce solar heat gain and protect your home from UV rays. By installing windows and doors with Low-E coatings, you’re shielding your furniture, carpets, and other materials from fading. Our window and door products from Renewal by Andersen® have High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass. Compared with double pane glass, this is up to 70% more energy-efficient in summer and 56% more energy-efficient in winter.
  • Material used – When it comes to energy efficiency, materials used in manufacturing windows and doors are a great factor. Reliable energy-efficient windows and doors are usually made from wood materials. Huff ‘N Puff offers Renewal by Andersen windows, which come with Fibrex frames. In addition to their ability to conserve energy, these frames are also durable.
