Are you literally throwing money out the window?
Energy Saving is the primary consideration we hear from our customers.

According to a study done by Energy Star, changing out your old windows to energy efficient windows could save you up to $465 a year. Experts say you can increase the value of your home by 70-75% of the total value of the window project. So, the right window can pay for itself very quickly!
Ways that you loose energy through a window
Heat and cold can conduct through the glass and even the frame of the window. Temperature can travel through a surface, much like putting your hand on a hot pot on the stove and feeling the heat
Heat can radiate through a surface. The most notable example of this is the super hot temperatures you get in an attic in the heat of the summer. The heat radiates through the roof and builds up in your attic. This the biggest way we loose energy in the southern climates through our windows. This is why many homes are designed with the AC registers under the windows to begin cooling the room at the heat source.
With a window that operates, you end up with many places around the edge that can leave gaps where cold winds in the winter can blow into the room. Many windows are not sealed very well around the bottom, top, and in-between the sashes leaving many areas for cold winds to get through
At US Home Exteriors, we offer windows for residents of Burlington, Winston-Salem, High Point, Greensboro, Raleigh, Kernersville, Graham, Mebane, Hillsborough, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, and Cary, North Carolina.
The first line of defense against the harsh outside elements is the glass in your windows. Beautiful windows can give you a beautiful view. You also want to make sure that you’re protected from the weather as well. Our windows include the latest in technology with the SuperSpacer system. This unique spacer system is made of a resin material and is seamless barrier all the way around the edge of the glass to keep your windows sealed and protected. This protects your windows from condensation and makes sure that you maintain energy efficiency and keep the glass clear for a long lasting beautiful view.
There are three ways you can loose energy through your windows. The one that affects us the most in North Carolina is Radiant Heat energy transfer. Our windows are coated with a three layer LoE coating to reflect radiant energy so that it bounces back away from the window surface. This acts as an invisible shield to protect you and keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Having a superior LoE coating on the glass can even help you lower the heating and cooling requirement for your HVAC system.
Foam Insulated Frames
High Density Foam-Filled Frames and Magna Seal
The most efficient door in your home is……..your refrigerator door.
What if we could deal your windows just as tight? How much money do you think you could save on your energy bills?
Our signature Heritage Windows come standard with High Density Foam insulation inside the frames as well as the sash. This gives the body of the Heritage window an R-Value of R-38. This is the equivalent of new building code for your attic insulation!
Plus, with our exclusive Magna Seal at the bottom of each double hung window, we can ensure a tight seal every timer you close your window. Just like your refrigerator door, Magna Seal utilizes a magnetic strip at the bottom of the window that pulls the window closed and every time you let the sash down ensuring there in no gap for air to flow through. We want to make sure that you can enjoy sitting by your windows in the summer and the winter just as comfortably.
Neat Glass windows uses a coating on the exterior of the glass that reacts with the outside elements to lift dirt and particles from the glass to keep your window clean. Rain water will simply wash the dirt off the window leaving you with a beautiful view. Neat Glass reduces dust buildup by 40% keeping your windows clean longer with no effort on your part.
