Energy-Efficient Windows: Enhancing Comfort and Savings in Your Lombard Home

When it comes to replacement windows in Lombard, Elmhurst, and the surrounding Western Suburbs, prioritizing energy efficiency is paramount. Not only do energy-efficient windows ensure comfort during harsh Illinois winters, but they also significantly reduce energy costs over time.

Understanding Energy Efficiency

What exactly makes a window energy-efficient? It’s not one single feature but rather a combination of elements working together harmoniously. A well-insulated vinyl or aluminum-clad frame, high-quality glass, effective weather stripping, and more contribute to a window’s energy efficiency.

Decoding the NFRC Label

Assessing a window’s efficiency is made simpler with the NFRC (National Fenestration Rating Council) label found on its glass pane. This label provides valuable insights into the window’s performance, including ratings for U-factor and air leakage. As of 2016, Energy Star recommends windows with a U-factor of 0.27 or lower and an air leakage rating of 0.30 or less for optimal performance in Illinois weather conditions.

“We are 100% pleased with the door we ordered through David at The Door Store. They custom stained it and it looks perfect. The installer was very friendly and skilled and took his time to do it right. Nothing on our 60's home is perfect or square, so it probably wasn't the easiest install. I would highly recommend them!”

“Recently our home in Berkeley received vinyl replacement windows, a bow window and steel doors. I wish to write a big thank you to the gentlemen who installed the above improvements. The windows and doors look beautiful. The men were enjoyable to have around. They tolerated our questions and our neighbor's questions with genuine concern and patience. Paul and I appreciate their high quality of workmanship. Thank you for a job well done.”
