Making Sense of Windows Ratings before Buying Replacement Windows
Choosing the right replacement windows for your San Jose home is important for many reasons. The windows you choose should add value to your home and help lower your energy costs. The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) has devised a rating system to help you choose windows that will give you all the benefits that windows have to offer while reducing their negative aspects. Sunlight is composed of three types of energy. Visible light is the portion that you want to bring into your home. Infrared energy transmits the sun’s heat, and UV rays are responsible for fading your carpets and furnishings. Modern windows allow you to bring in lots of light while restricting the sun’s damaging rays.
