Legacy Homes’ Energy Efficient Low-E Windows

Categories: Products | Posted: August 18, 2014

Legacy Homes’ floor plans are designed with extra windows so you can enjoy full sunlight and beautiful views. But you can also have the peace of mind knowing that your windows are saving money on utility bills and protecting your furnishings and finishes from sun damage. Your energy-efficient Legacy Home is installed with Low-E, or low emissivity, vinyl windows that are designed to keep the heat out. These ENERGY-STAR® rated windows incorporate a dual-paned, UV-resistant window system of protection that allows sunlight in but keeps heat and harmful UV rays out. With sloped sills for efficient water run-off, Fin-Seal weather stripping to stop air infiltration, and sash tilts for easy cleaning, your windows offer the custom look of a wood window with the maintenance-free performance of a vinyl window.

Energy Savings

Advanced technologies such as invisible UV-resistant glass, improved framing materials, better weather stripping, and warm edge spaces all help to greatly reduce unwanted heat coming into or leaving your home.

Indoor Protection

Photographs, furniture, flooring, and window treatments can easily fade or discolor after repeated exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Low-E windows can reduce fading of interior furniture, flooring, window coverings and paint by up to 75%.

Increased Comfort

ENERGY-STAR®–certified windows help keep homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. More of the sun’s heat is blocked from coming indoors during the summer, and your home’s interior heat is reflected back indoors during the winter.

Reduced Condensation

Advanced frames, glass coatings, spaces and other technologies enable your home’s windows to keep the inner surface of the glass and frame warmer, reducing the potential for interior condensation and water pooling on window sills that can cause mold or paint to crack.
