1. Quality Frame Materials
Various frame materials offer different benefits. This provides strength, durability, and the ability to custom finish.
How does this impact energy efficiency?
- Aluminum windows are strong but are not very energy efficient.
- Wood windows can be custom finished to match your decor, but they don’t have good insulation properties.
- PVC windows have the best energy savings. But this is only true when filled with polyurethane insulating foam. Without this foam, vinyl windows can be pretty inefficient. So, make sure you ask about the type of insulation!
Sunrise windows enjoy premium, pure virgin uPVC. This helps keep your home insulated. They are specially designed to be strong and durable. Utilizing Polyurethane insulating foam gives you the best protection from energy loss. Additionallyimprove, you then have the ability to custom paint the exterior of your windows. With the full catalog of designer options, Sunrise windows bring you the best of all worlds.
2. Low-E Glass: extra protection
“Low-E” refers to a special coating that reflects infrared light. This keeps heat inside your home in winter and shielding your home from the heat in summer. This coating also reflects damaging ultraviolet light. This helps protect interior furnishings from fading. Sunrise offers several low-e options to help you get the best protection. No matter where you live.
3. Multiple Panes: Insulate better
Two panes of glass, with an air or gas-filled space in the middle, insulate much better than a single pane of glass. Some ENERGY STAR qualified windows include three panes for even greater energy efficiency.
Sunrise offers both dual- and triple-pane options. With a variety of low-e combinations that meet or exceed ENERGY STAR requirements.
4. Gas Fill: better than air
Some energy-efficient windows have argon, krypton, or other gases between the panes. These odorless, colorless, non-toxic gases insulate better than regular air. This reduces the conduction of heat in the space between the panes of glass. Our windows are manufactured with a 90% argon or krypton gas fill, or come air-filled for high-altitude areas.
5. Spacers: all are not created equal
A spacer keeps a window’s glass panes the correct distance apart and insulates pane edges. This reduces heat transfer through the window. Spacers can come in many materials. From aluminum to stainless steel to foam. Spacers need to be durable enough to handle the flex of the glass. Temperatures fluctuate throughout the day and night. This needs to be without losing that airtight seal.
Sunrise windows have sound, stainless-steel spacers with moisture-absorbing desiccant beads inside. When tested under accelerated weather conditions, Sunrise glass systems outlast the competition.

FAQs about Enhanced Openings window replacement
What are windows made of?
The easy answer is glass plus a framework of wood, vinyl or composite materials. But the window industry has many options available to suit any home and lifestyle. Today, window frames are available in:
- Vinyl or vinyl-clad (for low maintenance)
- All wood
- Aluminum-clad or composites
Different glazing options available to make windows more energy efficient.
What is cladding?
Some windows are made with wood and then covered on the exterior and/or interior with another layer. They can also made with aluminum or vinyl. This layer of extra covering is the cladding. Cladding adds another layer of protection to the window. This will strengthen its resistance to outside weather or heavy inside usage.
How often should residential windows get replaced?
Homeowners with windows more than 25 years old should consider replacement windows. Gain the best energy efficiencies and protect the envelope of your home.
Consider replacing if any of the following is true:
- Painted shut or sealed windows
- Getting fogged with condensation
- Letting in drafts of hot or cold air
What do U-factor and R-value mean?
The U-factor is the amount of heat that escapes through a wall, window, roof or other surfaces. The lower the U-factor, the more energy efficient a material is. R-values are the direct opposite. This measures an object’s resistance to heat flow. The higher a material’s R-value, the lower its U-factor and the less energy it will lose.
An R-value depends on:
- The number of layers of glass in a window
- What type of gas is between those layers?
- Whether one or more of those layers of glazing have a Low-E coating
What does “Low-E” stand for?
Low-E is an invisible, microscopic layer of silver coating. This is added to glass for greater energy efficiency and increased comfort. Low-E stands for “low emissivity,”. This is the action of reflecting light passing through glass. By reflecting part of the light spectrum, we reduce a window’s U-factor and increase its R-value.
What is an impact-resistant glass window?
Impact-resistant glass has laminated glass interlayers. This type of window provides homeowners with superb options.
- Greater security
- Protection from storms
- Flying debris
- Even the occasional stray golf ball!
When struck by something hard and forceful the glass resists shattering. No need to worry about a small tree branch or softball. In the rare event that an object impacts the glass. The pane may shatter, but it remains held within the frame. This reduces the risk of flying glass, water or debris penetrating into the home.
Who should have impact-resistant glass in their homes?
- Homeowners living in areas prone to strong winds and storms
- Anyone living on a golf course
- living in an area where vigorous sports activities take place
These homeowners should consider impact-resistant glass in their homes. Other benefits are the sound reduction and security advantages that impact-resistant glass provides.
