This Is Part-5B Of Our multi-part article about 75+ Ways To Lower Heating CostsWith Your Existing HVAC System. 

NOTE: Part-5 Is Separated Into 3 Sections; A, B, & C.  Section B Discusses Sealing Air Leaks At Windows + Window Blinds

Click Here To Go To Part-5 A: www.AlsPlumbing.com Part-5A Insulating Fabric Window Coverings


Windows & Exterior Doors Represent Up To 21% Of Total Heat Loss/Gain.

Part-5-B Discusses How To Save Energy At Windows With 1. Air Leaks Sealing & 2. Insulating Window Coverings. These efforts have a tremendous impact in older DFW homes with their original Single-Pane Glass + Uninsulated Metal Frame windows.

You can add these insulating window coverings at a low to modest cost — and they will pay for themselves with lower heating & cooling costs.  Also, insulating window coverings reduce the amount of outdoor noise you will hear inside your home.   Depending on the existing windows in your home — these efforts may lower heating (and cooling) costs more than upgrading your HVAC.  We also later discuss replacement windows, if you are considering that.  We discuss 2 brands, and details for each.  

Al’s Plumbing provides full-service plumbing maintenance, repairs, and replacements for every plumbing component in your home.  Additionally, Al’s sells and installs Rheem Professional Series gas & electric water heaters, and tankless water heaters.  We are near your home in Plano, TX;  Allen, TX; and Frisco, TX.  We service all homes in southern Collin and northeast Dallas Counties with no additional travel charges.

Save Energy At Windows

By Sealing Air Leaks At Windows, + How Window Blinds Can Provide Up To +R2.5 Insulation.



These Lifestyle Habits Save Energy At Windows

Keep Windows Locked

SHOWN: This Photo Shows A Gap Between The Upper & Lower Window Sashes.

Locking A Window Brings The Upper & Lower Windows Closer Together, And Reduces Air Leakage.

(A Window Sash Is 1/2 Of A Typical Window.  On Some Windows – Both The Upper & Lower Sash Open.  On Others, Only The Lower Sash Opens.)


Save Energy At Windows  By Opening or Closing Window Coverings, At These Times Of The Day.

Save Energy At Windows During Winter:

  • Open draperies & blinds while the sun will shine through the window.
  • Otherwise, keeping draperies closed provides the best energy-efficiency.

Save Energy At Windows During Summer:

  • Close blinds & draperies on east-facing windows — from early morning until noon
  • Close blinds & draperies on west-facing windows — from noon until sunset.

Save Energy At Windows By Recaulking Along The Outside Edges Of Windows (if needed) 

  • Over time — it’s common for the caulk along the (exterior) edges of a window to; shrink, crack or fall out.
  • If this has occurred, exterior recaulking notably reduces air leakage between the window and the wall.
  • TIP: It also keeps water out of the wall.

Do Darker Color Window Films Save Energy At Windows By Blocking More Heat?   

YES, And Here’s Why.

There are 3 Light Sources That Create Heat:

  • 54% of TOTAL heat comes from Infrared Light — the sun’s heat.
  • 45% of TOTAL heat comes from Visible Light — & its heat.
  •   1%  of TOTAL heat comes from Ultraviolet (UV) Light.
  • Darker Color Window-Films Block More TOTAL Heat — Because They Block More Visible Light (& its heat).
  • Darker color window-films darken the room more.

A Comparison Of The Heat-Blocking Ability Of Two Window-Films

1. Nearly Clear &  2. Dark Window-Film.

BDF (brand) NSN70 (model) Window Film Allows 70% Of Outdoor Light Into The Room.

Amazon’s Website Says: BDF (brand) NSN70 (model) Window Film Block 45% Of The Sun’s Heat (Sun’s / Infrared Heat = 54% Of TOTAL Heat).

Because NSN70 Blocks 30% Of Visible Light — It Blocks 30% Of Visible Light’s Heat (Visible Light = 45% Of TOTAL Heat)

Image Source: Amazon Embedded Link

SHOWN: Removable Static-Cling Window-Film

TIP:  Window Film Is Either Permanent Or Removable (Static-Cling).

TIP: DIY Installation Of Permanent Window-Film Is Difficult.  Its installation is best left to professionals.

TIP: Installing Static-Clean Window Film is notably easier.


Compared To A Dark Window-Film 

Coavas (brand) Static-Cling (removable) Solar Window Film

Image Source: Amazon Embedded Link

SHOWN: Solar Window-Film

Click On Photo To: View Product, See Details, or Purchase From Amazon.com

Amazon’s Website Says:

This Dark Window Film:

  • Blocks 82% of Infrared Heat (sun’s heat).       The lighter color film blocks 45%.
  • Blocks 88% of Visible Light (& its heat).         The lighter film blocks 30%.
  • The darker film blocks +53% more Visible Light (& its heat) — than the lighter color window-film.
  • Visible light heat = 45% of TOTAL heat — so this film blocks (+53% x 45%) = +24% more TOTAL Heat — than the lighter color window-film.

TIP: If you have Low-E Windows — you don’t need window film.


TIP: Before Adding Window-Film

  • Check Your Windows Brand Manufacturer’s Website — To Know If It’s OK To Add Window-Film On Dual-Pane Windows.
  • The heat build-up (caused by window-film) between the panes — may cause the thermal-seal between the panes of glass to fail, and the windows become foggy.
  • It may also void the glass warranty.

TIP: If you have Low-E Windows — you don’t need window film.



TIP: Though Not Required — A Window Tint Installation Kit Can Make The Task Easier & Faster

Save Money At Windows With REPLACEMENT WINDOWS

Details & Specifications

TIP: Below we provide a lot of details about Replacement Windows — And the seemingly endless number of “Optional” Features you can add.

The Summary Just Below Give The Highlights — All The Detailed Information Follows.  

This Is A Summary Of The Detailed Information Below It

1. If you are interested in modestly-priced windows — Window World is a great source.   They are Vinyl windows.

2. If you want premium-priced windows — Andersen Windows is a great source.   They are Wood windows.

3. There are many additional brands of replacement windows — we chose these 2 brands because they represent a Lower and an Upper priced product.

 

A. The “standard” glass offered by both companies meets Texas’ Building Codes.

B. You can also choose among many “optional” glass choices.

  • Optional Tinted Glass — is a wise consideration if you have west-facing & east-facing windows in Texas.
  • Tinted glass for north-facing & south-facing offers little benefit in Texas.
  • TIP: Tinted windows typically look “green” outdoors.
  • Upgraded glass (other than tinted) provides only marginally better performance than the standard glass in Texas homes (the details are below)
  • Many glass options mostly benefit homes in the northern U.S.

Note: We Provide The R-Values Just Below — As A Comparison To Windows R-Values

Texas Current R-Values For Walls & Attic 

Starting Jan 1, 2016 — Texas adopted the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). 

For Climate Zone-3 (includes DFW):

  • R-20   Wall Insulation.
  • R-38  Attic Insulation  This requires appx. 11.5 inches of blown fiberglass insulation.

The 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) Requirements

(Until Texas Adopts The 2021 IECC — The R-Values Above Remain In Effect.)

  • R-20   Wall Insulation
  • R-49  Attic Insulation This requires appx. 15.5 inches of blown fiberglass insulation.

Save Energy At Windows — This Section Provides In-Depth Details For Replacement Windows

Our Goal In The Section Below — Is To Show That Modestly-Priced Windows

Have Nearly Identical Energy-Efficiency as Premium-Priced Windows.

Definitions

  • R-value (higher is better) is the measure of heat-transfer resistance through the window’s frame.
  • U-value (lower is better) measures heat loss or gain through the glass — At Night.
  • U-value number is more important for the Northern U.S.
  • Solar Heat Gain-SHGC (lower is better) measures how well the glass Blocks The Sun’s Heat from coming through the glass.
  • SHGC number is more important for the Southern U.S.
  • Air Leakage measures how many Cubic Feet (per minute) of air leaks into the home through the windows (lower is better).
