CHOOSE PRESIDENTIAL…ENJOY COUNTLESS BENEFITS
Presidential Series Double Hung Windows feature Enviroseal NXTTM with Super Spacer® technology which helps block heat and cold from passing through the window system . By keeping the elements from passing through, you will use less energy to heat and cool your home. This translates to savings on your energy bills and gives those temperature swings the boot.
If you live next to a busy road, have restless neighbors next door, hear airplane noise overhead or power tools blasting on a Saturday morning, EnviroSeal NXTTM technology helps keep it quiet inside your home. Here’s how it works: The closed-cell polymer foam in Super Spacer® transmits less sound compared to conventional metal spacers. Just another reason you’ll be more comfortable in your home.*
*Statement applies to transfer of noise through the windows only.
EnviroSeal NXTTM with Super Spacer® technology is a dual-seal system that is known to last up to five times longer than single-seal systems. One week spent in a P-1 chamber is equivalent to one year in the field. Since EnviroSeal NXTTM survived 125 plus weeks, well let’s just say that you will enjoy a lifetime of comfort, energy savings and quality performance from your new Presidential Series Windows.
Installing ENERGY STAR® qualified windows lowers energy bills and saves you money over single-pane and even newer double- pane, clear-glass windows. Presidential Series Windows with our high performance glass packages are ENERGY STAR® qualified for all regions.
Let’s face it, there are many brands to consider when deciding to replace your old windows and doors. This is where the ENERGY STAR® program can help you compare the options available. Tested by third party facilities, windows that are ENERGY STAR® qualified meet or exceed standards for efficiency for today’s homes.
Look for the Label
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) has established a standard method for rating the amount of solar heat gain that is admitted through a window. The lower the SHGC rating, the better the ability of the window to block the heat from the sun.
Condensation is a problem that looks unsightly and over time can stain wood, peel paint and rot frames. Condensation can also lead to mold growth, which has been linked to childhood asthma and an increase in general respiratory illnesses, allergies and outbreaks of fungal disease. EnviroSeal NXTTM virtually eliminates condensation – which in turn keeps your walls and windows in perfect condition, while keeping the potential for mold growth away from you and your family.
