Issues in Window Selection
Typically, aesthetics and costs are major factors in making design decisions about windows in homes. The need to reduce unwanted heat loss and heat gain has been the major energy-related issue in window design and selection. In addition, window design is influenced by various functional requirements like air- and water-tightness, as well as structural and acoustical performance.

An important choice you make in purchasing windows is what type of glass to put in them. Glass has a large effect on the heat your house loses at night, the heat it gains during the day and noise levels from outside. The glass in your windows helps to determine the level of comfort, security and privacy in your home. No matter the location of your site or the positioning of the windows within a project, Clovis Glass provides you with many glass solutions

In 1990 alone, the energy used to offset unwanted heat losses and gains through windows in residential and commercial buildings cost the United States $20 billion (one-fourth of all the energy used for space heating and cooling).
