Advantages of SoftLite Insulated Windows

SoftLite knows that windows are so much more than a source of natural light and a view to the outdoors. Windows don't just add to your home's curb appeal, they also serve as a vital element of your home's thermal envelope. Properly installed and sealed windows can contribute to significant savings on your monthly statement over time. Considering a typical home loses more than a quarter of its heat through its windows, we understand how crucial it is for these features to be well-insulated.

Minimize Air Infiltration and Save Energy

SoftLite insulated windows are an ideal way to save money on heating or cooling bills by minimizing the amount of energy-wasting air infiltration. Inferior windows are drafty, allowing air to seep through faulty seals and causing HVAC systems to work overtime. Even the glass panes themselves can contribute to higher energy costs. For peak energy efficiency, panes should be designed specifically to provide the kind of insulation your home requires. 

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) states that generally the best windows are awning and casement styles because they often close tighter than sliding types. However, every window manufactured by SoftLite meets exacting requirements for energy efficiency, while far exceeding industry standards.

SoftLite manufactures a wide variety of ENERGY STAR® labeled insulated windows. These products boast some of the best NFRC (National Fenestration Rating Council) ratings on the market for U-Factor and Solar Heat Gain — as well as excellent AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) ratings for air infiltration. With a variety of product lines and countless styles available, we have something for everyone's aesthetic taste, preference, and budget.
