Camarillo Replacement Windows

Choosing the right Camarillo replacement windows for your CA home is a very important decision. There are many options available today on the Camarillo market and it can be confusing and difficult to know which ones will be the more cost effective and beneficial for you. Here is a quick guide to assist you in your journey through selecting California replacement windows.

Energy Efficiency

Every locale has its own requirements regarding the efficiency ratings for California replacement windows and Camarillo is no different. You can do a little internet research or go downtown to discover what they are. However, as with new appliances you purchase for your home, Camarillo replacement windows come with Energy Star ratings. So, all you really need to do is select a window that has the Energy Star logo on it and you will be in compliance with local and state codes.

However, there is more to it, and if you want to make sure that you are getting the most efficient Camarillo replacement windows for your home, you can check the NFRC label. NFRC stands for The National Fenestration Rating Council, and these are the people who set the standards for what is needed your new replacement windows need in order to get an Energy Star rating. Be sure your Camarillo replacement windows have both stickers to ensure efficiency. The NFRC sticker will tell you exactly how efficient the product is, so you are able to compare between products.

If you want to be extra sure that the CA replacement windows you have chosen are the most energy efficient for your Camarillo home, use your computer. There are many sites out there that will allow you to user a computer simulation and plug in different variables to compare and determine what your average energy bills will be over the year. Some are very general (but still helpful) while others will give you an estimated dollar amount. Some of these programs will even compare the costs vs. the monetary benefits for you so you can determine how long it will take for your Camarillo replacement windows to pay for themselves.

Reading the NFRC Label

The NFRC sticker on your Camarillo replacement windows has a lot of information on it, and can be confusing if you don't know your way around it. The first figure you will see on the sticker is the U-Factor. This measures the rate at which your window will lose heat. The value that is on the sticker measures the rate of heat loss or gain through the entire window. This heat is not solar heat, but rather the heat inside your Camarillo house. Basically, it determines how well the CA replacement windows will insulate your home. A lower number for the U-Factor means better efficiency.

The SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient) is a number between 1 and 0, and it indicates the amount of solar radiation that your California replacement windows will let through. This is calculated in fraction form (though this is usually displayed using decimals. For example, 1/5 is displayed as 0.40, etc.). It is difficult to determine whether you want a higher or lower figure for this measurement. There are a lot of factors that you should look at, including the amount of sun exposure that each particular window will get, and how well insulated the rest of that area is. The best thing to do in order to be on the safe side is to choose Camarillo replacement windows that have a middle range SHGC number.

The Visual Transmittance figure (also known as the VT) indicates how much light the window will allow to come through. Like the SHGC, this figure has a range of 0 to 1, and a lower VT means less light is allowed through by the window. Air Leakage (AL) is the next item on the NFRC sticker you will see. This is pretty self-explanatory, and tells you how much air will be allowed to pass through minute cracks in your Camarillo replacement windows. This is measured in terms of how many cubic feet of atmosphere pass through one square foot are of any window in your Camarillo home. This is a number that you will want to see low figures on. It is not thought of as an essential for energy efficiency, and is therefore not a required item on the NFRC label.

The last figure you will see is Condensation Resistance. CR is also an optional rating and measures the amount of condensation that will accumulate on the inside of a window in your Camarillo home. This is not a very important measurement, but it comes in a range from 1-100, and a higher CR rating means your Camarillo replacement windows are more efficient.
