We see it as our duty as industry professionals to provide you with all the information and answers when it comes to investing money into your home. We make it our priority to save you money in the long run. The key to saving money with top quality products: low-e coated windows. Low-e coating on your windows is vital to ensure optimal energy efficiency in your home.

Protect Your Home

The cold winter climate rivaled by the harsh summer heat can make it difficult for you as a homeowner to protect your home from all the elements, especially living in Canada where we bear the brunt of such extreme changes in season. In the winter it is important to retain as much heat in your home to keep your family comfortable and save money on your heating expenses. In the summer it is important to shield your home from strong and harmful sunbeams to prevent damage. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can destroy furniture and other household valuables. It can leave posters and paintings dulled and faded, wooden tables with darkened patches, and leather couches lighter and thinner. This can reduce the quality of your furniture and various decorative items, leaving your home looking unnecessarily tattered. Sunscreen can protect you, but it can’t protect your home.

How it Works

Older windows and those with basic design structure are not equipped with the technological advancements that allows for protection against harmful UV and infrared rays. At Alma, we carry windows crafted with low-e coating, designed to filter out damaging sun rays in the summer months, and retain household heat in the winter months. This keeps your home comfortable during the harsh Canadian winters, and will cut down a great portion of your heating bills.

In addition to the glass panes enclosed in every properly constructed window, low-e coating can be applied for supplementary energy-efficient care. Low-e means low-emission. It can dilute the amount of UV and infrared light that is invisible to the naked eye, yet damaging to your home. UV can ruin your furniture and valuables over time, while infrared is responsible for physical heat. It important to control the passage of these two wavelengths, while optimizing the amount of visible light that shines through and illuminates your home. Windows equipped with high quality low-e coating will reflect outside wavelengths and prevent passage through the glass, leaving your leather, posters, and wooden surfaces unharmed. Heat produced inside your house will too be reflected inwards, therefore preventing heat loss.

Is it Time to Upgrade?

If your precious household items are being compromised by the natural sunlight illuminating your home, it might be time for you to update your windows. Better still to upgrade before any harm is done. Upgrading to low-e coated windows will save your furniture and décor from being irreversibly damaged, saving you thousands of dollars in replacement costs. Additionally, low-e coated windows will keep your home toasty warm in the wintertime, leaving your family and your wallet happy and comfortable.

Alma Windows and Doors wants to help you help yourself. We will gladly provide you with a free estimate, as well as answers to all your questions and concerns. Removal of your old windows is included, as well as clean up, and guaranteed service with a smile.
