 Energy Efficient Windows

The double pane, insulated window system works similarly to your oven door.  An oven door is also double paned and insulated and keeps the majority of the oven's heat inside the oven case and not in the kitchen.  Insulated windows help keep the heat or cold out of your home much like the oven door keeps the heat in the oven.
 
Replacing the original single pane windows on your home with energy efficient, double pane, insulated windows can help decrease energy costs and reduce the noise and dust level in your home.
 
One of the key insulating components of these energy efficient windows is the Thermal Barrier or Thermal Break.  This is a layer of polyurethane set between the inner and outer aluminum frames.  This layer helps increase the insulating value of the window.  As the external heat or cold contacts the window frame its path towards the inside of the home is reduced by the thermal break.

Below is an aluminum insulated window in bronze color.  This replacement window has double panes which are set in an insulated aluminum frame.  The frame is built with a thermal break which helps prevent the aluminum material from conducting heat or cold into the house.

The thermal barrier is also used in the window sashes, which is depicted in the photo below.

This photo below shows the bottom of the window sash.  There is an inner and outer seal separated by the thermal barrier.  These three window elements work to help maintain the homeowner's desired internal air temperature.  The seals also help reduce the internal dust and noise levels for the house.
