What You Need to Know About High-Performance Insulated Glass Packages

One of the most significant building products advances in recent years has been the development of high-performance insulated glass packages for windows and doors. These innovative solutions can enhance the comfort of your home and contribute to substantial energy savings. Among these, ClimaTech PriME stands out as a remarkable choice.

ClimaTech PriME: An ENERGY STAR® Champion

One of the most critical aspects of any window or door system is its energy efficiency. ClimaTech PriME takes this efficiency to a new level by meeting ENERGY STAR Most Energy Efficient criteria for tax credits in all climate zones. This certification signifies its exceptional ability to keep your home comfortable while reducing energy consumption.

Argon Gas: A Cost-Effective Insulator

To further enhance insulation, ClimaTech PriME insulated glass packages incorporate argon gas between the panes of glass. Argon is an excellent insulator and more cost-effective than other gasses like krypton. As a result, argon can boost window and door thermal performance and help homeowners qualify for potential tax credits.

The Power of Three Panes and Low-E Technology

ClimaTech PriME has three panes of glass, each playing a vital role in enhancing energy efficiency. However, what sets it apart is the integration of three surfaces of low-emissivity (Low-E) technology to reflect heat, making them helpful with maintaining your desired indoor temperature.

Perfect for Year-Round Comfort

ClimaTech PriME is known for its versatility throughout the year. In the scorching summer months, the Low-E glass helps block unwanted solar heat gain, and during the chilly winter months, the same Low-E technology reduces heat loss by reflecting warm air into your home. This dual-action ensures your home remains cozy and your HVAC system has less work to do, no matter the season.ClimaTech PriME is available with Alside Mezzo and Fairfield 80 Series windows and Promenade Sliding Patio Doors.
