Energy-efficient windows from Window World of Houston have helped many Houston homeowners save money and energy year-round, and we can do the same for you!
Low-E glass is brilliantly engineered to minimize the amount of UV rays and unwanted temperatures into your home.
Intercept™ warm-edge spacer insulates the exterior edges of a sealed unit and can tack on 5% savings on monthly energy costs.
Vinyl window frames are constructed with a complex array of compartments to help trap and repel unwanted weather.
Airtight weatherstripping seals the sides, top and bottom frames of your door to prevent air infiltration.
Insulated polyurethane core provides an additional thermal barrier.
Composite frames resist rotting, rusting and warping to withstand constant exposure to the elements.
Decorative and ENERGY STAR-compliant door lites that allow light in but keep the elements out.
A window is 80% glass. The only way you’ll see substantial heating and cooling savings is to boost the glass performance. Window World of Houston helps you do that by combining UV-filtering Low-E glass (LG), insulating argon gas and the Intercept™ warm-edge spacer system to deliver superior energy efficiency. Combine, they can combat the harmful effects of the sun—no more worrying about faded carpets, curtains or furniture!
In winter, a warmer glass temperature is maintained, increasing the R-value by an additional 104%.
In summer, a 48% reduction in solar heat gain helps cut air conditioning costs.
Our ComfortWorld Windows with the SolarZone™ insulated glass package can improve your home’s efficiency by a cumulative 35%.
The window shown on the left is a clear insulated glass unit, and the window on the right is a Solarban® 60 Low-E insulated glass unit. Using thermography, you can clearly see the transmission of solar heat on the clear insulated glass window – indicated by the green, yellow and orange colors from the heat scale. When compared to the extremely low transmission of solar heat on the Solarban® 60 Low-E insulated glass unit, the best choice for your home is clear.

ENERGY STAR is a government-sanctioned symbol for energy efficiency, credibility, sustainability and cost-savings for the consumer. Browse below to explore what’s required to become ENERGY STAR-certified and what it looks like in your region of the country.
U-Factor measures the rate at which heat flows through an object. The lower your U-value, the less heat your windows allow through them.
R-Value determines how well the insulation inside your window is performing. The higher your R-value, the better insulated your window is.
Window World of Houston is located in ENERGY STAR’s Southern Climate category. To maintain certification here, our windows and doors must maintain a U-Value of ≤ .40 and an R-Factor from 13 to 21.
Low-E glass is a type of glass that has been treated with a microscopic, metallic coating designed to filter certain types of light into your home. The glass blocks heat gain from the sun’s reflected rays in warmer months and allows warmth from the sun’s shorter rays to flow into your home during cooler seasons.
Low-E glass can improve year-round energy performance by 24%
Our Intercept™ warm-edge spacer system is a new-age technology used to extend the shelf-life of window glass by reducing condensation build-up and edge-to-glass temperatures. Designed to seal in escaping heat, this spacer system is the most effective of its kind.
By adding the Intercept™ Warm Edge Spacer System, you can increase the efficiency by yet another 5%.
Argon is a colorless, odorless and nonreactive insulating property with extremely high density and extremely low thermal conductivity, making it an ideal agent for year-round comfort.
Argon glass filling – a better insulator than oxygen – can increase efficiency by another 6%
