Global Home Improvement - PA’s Expert Marvin Window Installers
For homeowners looking at replacement windows, energy efficiency is a key concern. The loss of heat in the winter or cool air in the summer can add to your home’s utility bill, and it is very often due to leaky windows. If your windows are old and in need of replacing, in today’s market, you have several materials to choose from. Natural wood windows are often favored for their appearance, especially when it comes to restoring and maintaining the décor in a vintage home. But how do they compare, in terms of energy efficiency, with newer technologies such as fiberglass windows?
These durable, high-quality, energy efficient windows offer important advantages over traditional windows.
Superior Construction for Less Leakage
Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows are made from Ultrex, a proprietary pultruded fiberglass technology that’s extremely durable and long-lasting, requiring virtually no maintenance. A few facts about our fiberglass replacement windows:
- resists ultraviolet degradation up to 5x longer than vinyl
- requires 39 percent less energy to produce
These fiberglass replacement windows won’t dry, rot, or crack like natural wood windows can, so they don’t require the amount of maintenance that wood windows do. Fiberglass also isn’t susceptible to insects. Less degradation over time prevents leakage that can lead to higher energy costs.
Low-E Glazing Radiate Energy and Reduce Costs
Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows can be ordered with Low-E glazing, which can reduce cooling bills. Low-E glass coating has a lower emittance than standard glass, which is the ability of a material to radiate energy. Glass that is treated with a Low-E coating will reflect more solar heat energy away from a building than untreated glass. This keeps the inside environment better insulated and more comfortable, while also reducing utility costs.
Infinity EverWood Finish
If you still want the classy appearance of wood windows for your traditional home, Marvin has the perfect solution with Infinity EverWood. They combine the natural beauty of wood with the modern practicality of fiberglass, such as extreme durability and strength. These replacement windows, like all those in the Infinity line, are Energy Star rated in all U.S. climates for their energy efficiency, yet they have the look of real wood and can be painted or stained. This isn’t true of vinyl windows, which are subject to warping in extreme temperatures, can discolor over time and are difficult to repair and paint.
Durability and Appearance
In addition to greater energy efficiency, long-lasting durability and its similarity in appearance and texture to natural wood, Infinity fiberglass windows are available in various styles including:
- Double Hung
- Bay/Bow Windows
- Picture Windows
Each replacement window comes with your choice of finish, glass options, and hardware.
Infinity from Marvin fiberglass replacement windows are the clear choice when it comes to energy efficiency. And with their beautiful appearance and ability to easily customize, they’re the winner when it comes to style as well.
