Buy Impact Windows is a supplier of impact-resistant and non-impact vinyl or aluminum windows in a wide range of styles and performances. Our windows have been extensively researched, constructed, and tested to ensure that they meet or surpass the increasingly stringent coastal rules.
We specialize in the sale and installation of vinyl windows that provide thermal efficiency as well as strength and storm resistance. The multi-chambered designs trap air and reduce heat or cold transfer into your home. Vinyl windows never need to be repainted and require little upkeep to ensure they last a lifetime.
The Benefits of a Vinyl Frame.
The popularity of vinyl is primarily due to its energy efficiency. Vinyl is a good thermal insulator and is often used as a frame material for energy-efficient windows. The National Fenestration Grading Council (NFRC) and the Department of Energy (DOE) have created rating systems to assess the energy efficiency of windows.
The U-Value of the window, which evaluates the window’s resistance to heat flow, is an important NFRC test. The greater the insulating property of the window, the lower the U-Value. Another important NFRC test is the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). This metric assesses how well a window blocks heat generated by sunshine. The lower the number, the less of the sun’s solar heat enters the dwelling through the window.
Our windows meet or exceed the strict Energy Star® criteria for u-value and SHGC.
