No matter what time of year it is, replacing your windows with energy-efficient ones is a good idea. With energy-efficient products, you save money on utility bills, and you’re decreasing the amount of energy used, making a positive environmental impact.
However, the benefits of energy-efficient windows are notably abundant in the summer. During the hotter months, you’ll want to maintain a fresh, cool home that’s safe from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays without spending a fortune. With the right energy-efficient windows, you’ll do precisely that.
Casa Bella Windows & Doors has been serving the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) for over 60 years. We’re a manufacturing and installation company that focuses on energy-efficient windows and doors. Based in the GTA, we know how hot our summers can get. Nothing is as important to us than the happiness and wellbeing of our customers, and that includes keeping cool and safe from the blistering sun.
We ensure that our energy efficient replacement windows are of the highest quality, protecting you and your family from severe heat and powerful UV rays.
Are you planning on updating your home in the near future with renovations? Consider going green and replacing your old windows with energy-efficient windows.
What does Energy-Efficient Mean?
We design our energy-efficient windows to prevent the cooled air from escaping your home through cracks and leaky holes. Their enhanced insulation reduces your home’s energy usage — and, therefore, your utility bills. You won’t have to crank up that air conditioner as high because you won’t need to use it as often. Your home will stay cooler naturally. Energy-efficient windows make your home more comfortable (and affordable) overall.
When you choose Casa Bella as your renovation company, you can expect strong ethical business practices, including a commitment to energy efficiency and environmental awareness. We aim to reduce our company’s carbon footprint in several ways, including our unique window recycling program that involves sourcing glass for our products from a manufacturer that recycles scrap glass.
All of our windows have an official rating from Energy Star® and shield your home from the hot solar rays.
How Casa Bella Provides Solar Protection
We offer vinyl windows Mississauga and the rest of the GTA can count on made with durable solar protection. All of our window frames are made out of vinyl with UV stabilizers to keep sunlight from breaking down the material and entering your home.
Low-E Glass Coatings
Our energy-efficient windows contain a low-E glass coating (a thin layer of hot tin oxide) that’s applied to the internal glass. A low-E coating can prevent UV and infrared light from entering your home. This type of surface separates heat and light energy, and this is how it works:
- Heat reflects back to the sun.
- The short wave light passes through the low-E coating to illuminate your home.
This way, you’ll still enjoy the benefits of natural light without the sun’s intense heat.
Window Gas Fills
Casa Bella’s energy-efficient windows have gas fills between the windowpanes. These gas fills help insulate your windows better. They’re filled with non-toxic, odourless, and colourless gasses such as argon and krypton.
Why We Choose Energy Star® Rated Products
When you see the Energy Star® symbol on an appliance, window, or other product, you’ll know that it’s made of the highest-quality materials. It’s the internationally trusted and recognized symbol that marks high efficiency. Energy Star® products also meet a variety of strict guidelines and restrictions to gain approval from international government environmental agencies.
Energy Star® windows are designed to keep heat out of the home. They have a low U-factor, which provides excellent insulation and is highly efficient for warmer climates. They reduce the heat from entering your home more effectively than typical windows because they’re made with insulated glass. You won’t feel that staggering, uncomfortable heat, but you’ll still enjoy a healthy dose of natural light.
Energy-efficient windows are a worthwhile investment. You’ll feel much more comfortable during the summer season, and you won’t have to break the bank with sky-rocket-high utility bills.
