What Makes a Window Energy Efficient?

How replacement windows save money and energy

Your home’s windows can drag down energy efficiency or be the cause of incredible energy savings. Here are some of the traits to look for to make sure your windows save as much as possible on energy costs.


Look for windows with low emissivity (low E) glass. This kind of glass stops UV rays and radiant heat from entering your home.

Taylors Windows has created a proprietary window glass with some of the lowest emissivity on the market.

Sashes and Frames

Sashes and frames can bring energy efficiency depending on what materials are used and how they’re made.

Taylors Windows have vinyl sashes and frames, not metal or wood, for lower conductivity. These sashes and frames are built with a multi-chamber design that creates dead air pockets inside the sash and/or frame itself, providing extra insulation and energy savings.


The spacer separates the two panes of glass in a window. Many windows use metal spacers that conduct heat and hinder energy efficiency.

Taylors Windows uses Duralite spacers that are non-conductive. These spacers dramatically reduce conductivity, saving you money on energy costs.

Gas between Panes

In addition, newer windows include gas between the panes to add energy efficiency. At Taylors Windows, we use non-conductive Argon between panes of glass.

Taylors Window and Screen manufactures replacement windows that lead the market in energy efficiency. Because we are the manufacturers, we can ensure our products remain leaders in energy efficiency.
