For most people, it's a dream come true when you get to design and build your own home. Along with choosing the carpet colors and other detail decisions, homeowners are discovering the cash-saving benefits that accompany the installation of eco-friendly windows. At Gulf Coast Windows Austin, we can provide you with the industry's top-performing new construction windows that are beautifully designed with the environment and your energy bill in mind.
You've probably seen the ENERGY STAR approval stamp on many of your household appliances, even buildings. ENERGY STAR is now an international standard and used as branding recognition for energy-efficient consumer products. At Gulf Coast Windows Austin, our windows are designed for improved glass performance. When it comes to window construction, 80 percent is glass. Our ClimaTech insulated glass package is a high-performance PPG Low-E product with argon gas and the PPG Intercept Warm Edge Spacer System. These windows improve efficiency no matter what climate you live in. In hot climates, summers in Austin, the windows help repel heat and glare while filtering out ultraviolet rays that fade carpet, furniture, paintings and even stained wood. In colder climates, the windows let in maximum, free solar heat and they'll keep the warm air inside.
Between the two panes of your window is a layer filled with argon gas. Argon is a colorless, odorless, nonflammable gas that's heavier than air. The most important part is it's safe and toxin-free. Besides making your home more energy efficient, this layer of argon also acts as a sound barrier for your home, blocking out noise pollution from the street.
Building your dream home is an exciting process, and Gulf Coast Windows Austin would love to help you install the perfect windows to not only compliment the construction, but to also help you save on your energy bill. Contact us today to request a free quote.
