You might have been sold the wrong glass
Stop using Energy Star as the basis for selecting windows and start asking how a window will perform all year round.
Did you replace your windows in hopes that both your heating and cooling costs would go down and your home would be more comfortable all year round? Is your home hotter in the summer than it was before you replaced your windows with what you thought were Energy Star High Efficient windows?
Simply put, you were sold the wrong glass. Energy efficient windows make your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter but it’s important to remember, that not all windows are created equally. Selling someone the wrong glass for their home is as helpful as selling someone glasses that have the wrong prescription. They might look great but they won’t get the job done.
If you replace your windows with glass that has high Solar Heat Gain, the heat from the sun will travel through the glass and get trapped in your home. As a result, your home will be even hotter than it was before you replaced your windows. A reputable window company will work with you, display various options and help you make the right decision. You may end up selecting different glass for different rooms, depending if your home has southern exposure, shade, street noise, large windows, among other variables. Do your research, ask questions and make sure the glass you bring into your home serves its purpose throughout the year.
