Insulated replacement windows help control convection, conduction, and radiation heat flow through windows; recommended products offer a low U-factor (conduction control) and high R-value (resistance to convection) rating.
These windows use multiple panes with space between for different forms of insulation, such as Argon Gas to reduce heat transfer and convection, or Krypton, more often used in tight spaces or for triple-paned windows. Both are terrific for boosting energy efficiency.
An alternative is Low-E Glass where panes are coated with a thin layer of metal oxide. This reduces infrared, ultraviolet, and visible light transfer. Heat is a reflected back to its source, keeping summer heat out and winter warmth in.
