Understanding the Energy-Efficient Performance of New Windows for Your Nashville TN Home

If you’re like many homeowners in the Nashville, Tennessee, area, you hear all the time about how having new windows installed is such a great investment to make because it will increase your home’s energy efficiency. But what does this really mean? How exactly will new windows help you conserve energy? Let’s examine some of the most important features and benefits of energy-efficient windows to help you understand just how these aspects can affect your home’s energy performance.

Low-E Glass Coatings

Energy-efficient windows feature a special kind of glass known as “low-emissivity” or Low-E glass. Low-E glass is coated with microscopic layers of metal that help keep warm air inside your home when it’s cold outside. This way, your HVAC system won’t have to work so hard to maintain a comfortable interior temperature.

Spacer Systems

Spacer systems help regulate the temperature differential between the interior and the exterior of the glass. Most modern replacement windows feature spacer systems that are made of structural foam as opposed to the stainless steel spacer systems of yesteryear. These foam spacers help keep your windows thermally-efficient and condensation free. Some spacer systems can even lower a window’s U-value by as much as .01, which might look incremental but is actually pretty significant considering a lower U-value means more energy efficiency.

Inert Gas Fills

Almost all energy-efficient windows these days use some type of gas fill—be it argon, krypton, or a combination of gases. These gases are pumped in between the panes of glass and act as invisible insulation to prevent heat transfer through the glass panes. Just like the spacer systems, gas fills can help lower a window’s U-value, which can contribute to long-term energy savings and lower heating and cooling bills.

Our Happy Clients

As a window salesman who can sell Pella, Marvin, and Andersen windows as well, I can say with confidence that the Sunrise Window is a better option than any of those window brands. Most of the negative reviews I have read about the Sunrise product, is because the homeowner is uneducated on how condensation works, or the fault of the installer. If Sunrise makes a mistake, they will always fix it. Best window company to deal with and best warranty out there.

I purchased Sunrise Windows last year for a house I was flipping. I believe the windows were a big reason the house sold for nearly 100% of the asking price. This is a great company. I would recommend this company's products to anyone.

Toledo, OH

I had Sunrise Windows installed in my home in 2000. We started noticing some of the wood lament on the windows started peeling. Sixteen years later, Sunrise honored their warranty and replaced every window. This is a stand-up company.

Temperance, MI

A company that honors their warranty! I had their windows since 1996 and the company still honors my warranty. Great windows. Great company. Thank you Sunrise!

Chicago, IL

Installed 30 replacement windows and 2 sliding glass doors in Raleigh, NC. No leaks, no condensation, nearly perfect inside and out. Some windows were larger than 5x5 and still no problems. No more drafts and lower hvac costs. Real quality. Check with experts who engineer glass, as I did. They look great and visitors actually notice and comment. Just a happy customer. Nice job guys!

Raleigh, NC

I had ALL my windows and both doors replaced at the same time to my older (built in 1958) home by the folks at Sunrise and am very satisfied with the selection, service and installation! I’d recommend Sunrise to anyone renovating their older home.
