When contemplating the beauty and energy efficiency of your home, few things are as important as the windows you choose. With multiple advancements in design and materials over the last decades, the wide variety of available products promise unprecedented efficiency paired with the most modern aesthetic appearance.
In such a busy market you may find it difficult to make a decision about which product is best for you. Fortunately, a few products have risen above the crowd to become clear industry leaders: one of them is the Quantum 2 line of windows. Here’s what you need to know.
Quantum 2 Windows Have Heat Mirror Glass
Heat mirror technology has been used for decades in space travel to protect against the extreme heat generated by spacecraft re-entering the atmosphere. While your home isn’t likely to enter orbit anytime soon, it can still enjoy the benefits of heat mirrors thanks to Quantum 2 windows.
Heat mirror technology uses a thin film of material with a special design and coating that reflects heat back to its source. On hot days, heat mirror technology reflects the heat of the sun back outside, where it can’t heat undo the hard work of your air conditioning system. On cold days, it reflects indoor heat back indoors, instead of letting it escape outside.
These windows use handcrafted design to add beauty to your home, inside, while their heat mirror technology ensures you won’t throw money out the window to keep a stable and controlled indoor climate.
Guaranteed Noise Reduction
Quantum 2 windows use two panes of glass and layers of high-tech coating to insulate your home from outdoor noises, while also preventing indoor noises from escaping outside. The glaze is applied in a varying thickness to disrupt sound waves, while the second pane of glass completes the scattering effect, preventing the sound from transferring through the window.
This structure effectively “mutes” any noises, providing peace and quiet to residents both inside and outside of the home.
Protection Against UV Rays
Quantum 2 windows utilize multiple UV coatings and innovative construction to block 99.5 percent of the UV rays that would otherwise enter your home. This protection ensures that the UV rays won’t bleach your home furnishings and decorations, and it also prevents your family’s skin from being damaged at the same time while indoors.
Quantum 2 Windows Prevent Heat Transfer
Heat transfer is the process by which heat from the outdoors is transferred indoors or vice versa. In a standard window, the outside pane of glass is heated and then transfers that heat to the window’s interior structure, where it is transferred once more to the interior pane of glass and finally heats up your home’s interior air. This heat transfer wreaks havoc with your climate control system, and it can easily lead to thousands of wasted dollars in heating and cooling costs every year.
Quantum 2 windows have an insulation value of R-5.6, one of the best values on the market. With double-glazing and heat mirror technology, the windows block heat transfer to improve your home’s overall insulating capacity. This feature helps keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, letting you retain more of your hard-earned dollars.
Window condensation is caused by a mismatch between indoor and outdoor temperatures. When the indoors are much warmer than the outdoors — or vice versa — humidity on the warm side of your windows is encouraged to condense, leading to unsightly droplets of water that can even impact the effectiveness of your home’s climate control.
Quantum 2 windows short-circuit the condensation process by blocking the temperature mismatch entirely. The fact that it’s hot outside won’t warm up the interior pane of glass, thanks to the heat mirror and insulating technology. Since the window is better insulated, it won’t encourage “sweat” condensation, and so water droplets won’t form on the glass.
Quantum 2 Windows Come With a Lifetime and Glass Breakage Warranty
Quantum 2 windows feature best-in-market construction and materials. However, in the unlikely event that an accident or other forms of damage occurs with your windows, you’ll be covered thanks to their lifetime and glass breakage warranty.
Quantum 2 Windows Save You Money
Beyond providing an aesthetic upgrade in comparison to old and outdated windows, Quantum 2 windows can be an investment that actually saves you money in the long run. Thanks to their powerful insulating technology you won’t be wasting money on unnecessary climate control expenses; instead, you will start reducing your energy footprint and utility bills. Additionally, Quantum 2’s powerful UV blocking technology prevents sun fading on the objects inside your home, so even your furniture will last longer and save you money over time.
With the best technology on the market coupled with lovingly handcrafted design, these windows can reduce your costs while boosting the appearance of your home.
