Vinyl windows are made of a desirable material for homeowners, builders, and sub-contractors because vinyl delivers an outstanding thermal performance. Window Mart pays a lot of attention to energy-efficiency in vinyl windows. We use Low-E glass, warm edge spacers, and a window frame with a unique multi-chamber system to improve the energy-efficiency of our windows.
Unlike aluminum windows—which rapidly conduct heat—vinyl windows do a better job at reducing heat loss and maintaining a comfortable environment inside your house in Edmonton and surrounded area all year round.
The quality and energy-efficiency of vinyl windows can vary. It depends on various factors, such as manufacturing, glazing, frame material, insulation, and many others. Always look for the ENERGY STAR symbol to make sure that you’re getting energy-efficient windows. You can also compare key metrics, such as U-factor, solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC), and energy rating.

Professional installation is a major factor in determining the performance and ROI of the vinyl windows. If air is allowed to pass around the frame, then even the most energy-efficient and high-quality vinyl windows will cause problems.
