Southwest Door & Window understands that Earth Day is a specific day in April, but we don’t care! We celebrate Earth Day every day and there are a number of ways in which we do so. Here are just a few:
1. We Offer High Quality Vinyl Windows
Vinyl windows work well for many homes in Frisco, TX and they also stand up well for the earth as a whole. Vinyl is a resource that we can make again and again without taking away natural elements from forests. Vinyl is highly energy efficient, especially for regions that are hot like Frisco, TX. Vinyl doesn’t conduct heat through its materials so you don’t have to worry about your home getting hotter because the windows transfer any heat inside from outside. The windows also create a tight seal with your home so they don’t leak air in or out either. All of that translates to higher energy savings, which is good for the earth. It’s also good for your energy bills!
2. We Offer Energy Star Windows
Our windows are Energy Star designated, which means they meet certain energy performance criteria in their categories. The criteria the windows have to meet are different based on region. The windows we sell in Texas might not be a great fit for those who live in the cold climates up north, but they are perfect for the heat and humidity we see here. We’ll show you the ratings on every window you consider so you understand what you’re getting. And it’s good for energy savings and the earth!
3. We Offer Energy Saving Options
There are a variety of things you can do to vinyl windows that make them even more energy efficient. When you work with us, you can use low-e glass, which helps to prevent extra heat in your home because of the hot Texas sun. You can also insulate with argon or krypton gas between the panes of glass. This helps the warm air from passing through your window and it can also dampen sounds and prevent them from entering your home. All this adds up to energy savings, which helps the environment.
4. Our Options are Low Maintenance
You have heard that vinyl windows are low maintenance and that might seem like more of a benefit for you than the earth, but actually, it’s both! When you get vinyl windows from us, you don’t have to worry about upkeep. That means you don’t have to buy paint and other materials. You’ll save money and you’re benefiting the earth at the same time.
