Winterizing Windows
A How-To for Saving Money with Windows

By now, most of you know that Energy Star ratings are an integral way to gauge the quality of a window's thermal and energy efficiency, and we are proud to provide dozens of models that receive the highest Energy Star ratings.  Among these, we are especially proud of our line of ProVia Endure windows, which can be seen here .

Two things that make ProVia Endure especially smart solutions as replacement windows involve obscure, but incredibly important, factors in the estimation of an Energy Star rating, these factors being "air infilitration" and "condensation resistance."  

Air infilitration denotes a measurement of how much exterior air flow passes through the window pane, thus decreasing internal temperatures.  Factory-tests conducted by ProVia ensure that all their windows exceed the industry standard for this measurement before they are released on the market.  

Condenstation resistance denotes the material ability a window has to avoid condensation formation, which is a function of ambient humidity.  Just like the case of air infiltration, laboratory tests on condensation resistance are performed on all ProVia windows before they are sold and installed by ABE Doors.  

There are many ways to save on energy costs during winter, and purchasing replacement windows, such as ProVia Endure, through ABE Doors is just one way among many.  Please call, return to our site, or visit our offices for more helpful tips on saving money during the winter seasons.
