Understanding U-Factors | Glen Ellyn, Frankfort, Willow Springs

The number one complaint made by homeowners during cold weather is a drafty home that just doesn’t seem to be able to get warm. Many people call Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning looking for a furnace repair when really what they need is new replacement windows in the home. Luckily for them, Four Seasons can still help! The Four Seasons Window Collection can solve your home’s draft problems, but first you need to understand how they do this and that requires an understanding of u-factors.

Why U-Factors Matter

            The u-factor of your windows takes into account the window’s ability to resist the transfer of heat as well as the amount of airflow around the window and the glass’s ability to resist absorption of infrared energy. In simpler terms, the u-factor is a rating of how energy efficient your new windows will be. The lower the number the better, and the ratings range between 0.16 and 1.20. If your home is drafty and you suspect the windows are the culprit, your current u-factor is probably closer to the 1.20 mark. That translates into loads of money lost every month to high energy bills, and with time it will take a toll on your furnace.

Increase Comfort and Savings with the Four Seasons Window Collection

            The Four Seasons Window Collection offers three options and can drastically improve the u-factor of the windows in your home. The Elegance, Optima, and Radiance Series are rated at 0.20, 0.28, and 0.29 u-factors respectively. Any one of these windows will help you lower your energy bills and get the most out of every dollar you spend on energy this upcoming winter season. Contact Four Seasons for more information about how you can stop drafts from destroying your comfort and emptying your wallet.
