With average winter weather around 15-30 degrees Fahrenheit, keeping your house insulated during a long Colorado winter is not easy. Windows can be a major source of heat loss, especially if they are old and drafty or do not have a tight seal. Finally, there is an effective solution for homeowners like you who seek improved insulation in the wintertime: Quantum 2 windows.
Why Quantum 2 Windows
According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, approximately one-third of a home’s heat loss occurs through windows and doors. While you can add protective film or caulk around windows in an effort to reduce heat loss, these weatherproofing attempts will only solve part of the problem. Replacing drafty windows and doors will cause an immediate improvement in home comfort and a decrease in energy bills.
Unlike standard windows, Quantum 2 windows are made of suspended film technology to improve insulation. They not only keep your house warm during the winter, they help it remain cool in the summer by blocking warm air from entering the home.
What are Quantum 2 Windows?
Premium vinyl windows that are constructed from Kensington Glass, Quantum 2 windows are built to perform in extreme temperatures. Unlike other brands of replacement windows that simply cannot take the harshness of the mile high climate, these windows are designed to look attractive yet perform exceptionally well in cold weather climates.
Because the Quantum 2 window frames and sashes are actually filled with foam, Quantum 2 window insulation is superior to that of other replacement windows. In fact, the R-value of Quantum 2 full-frame double hung windows is 5.6. Dual weather stripping, a fusion-welded frame, and a reinforced interlock add extra protection against air leaks.
The windows’ exterior UV coating naturally reflects solar heat back into the atmosphere, preventing the sort of solar heat gain that makes Colorado summers uncomfortable without air conditioning. The UV coating on the outside of Quantum 2 windows also prevents sun fading, preserving your personal possessions.
Quantum 2 windows come with a glass breakage warranty and lifetime warranty from the manufacturer for your added peace of mind. Transferable in nature, the warranty will remain in effect even when you go to sell your house.
To better suit your needs, Quantum 2 windows are available in a variety of sizes, including for patio doors. Replacing your old drafty windows and patio doors with Quantum 2 replacement windows will improve your energy efficiency, your curb appeal, and the value of your home.
