Houston, Texas (PressExposure) March 02, 2012 -- All-Tex Home Improvement Services - To support the state's energy conservation agenda, All-Tex Home Improvement Services unveils a greener line of replacement windows Austin residents can avail of.
Energy conservation is for everybody, the company stressed. It is but right to incentivize the switch to greener windows that reduce energy consumption costs and generate less window replacement debris.
Making Windows Greener
The company explained that its line of greener windows is an improved version of the classic insulated glass units which close to 80 percent of residences in Texas have been using since 2000.
The upgrade follows Energy Star's five-point guide on the anatomy of energy-efficient windows: multiple panes, high-quality/durable window frames, low-e glass panes, warm edge spacer, and gas fills.
All-Tex Home Improvement Services uses Simonton windows. Simonton's line of greener windows have spacers filled with argon gas instead of dry air, employ a thermal breaker to improve insulating performance and complement aluminum frames, and come with a low-emissivity coating.
Compared to older windows, Simonton's greener version had been enhanced to withstand both hot and cold climates - a combination which the company says can reduce both home heating and air conditioning costs by as much as 30 percent.
It's really the coating that makes the windows more appropriate to Texas weather, the company revealed. The conventional insulated glass units can only keep the heat from escaping. The coating helps to fight summer heat from entering and keeps solar heat gain coefficient values (SHGC) down.
The state caps SHGC at 0.40. Lower values may qualify for incentives. Under Austin Energy's power saver program for instance, commercial rebates are available for brand-new replacement windows with an SHGC of 0.27 and for installed window treatments with an SHGC of 0.37.
Helping Locals to Save More
Savings is an important factor the company has looked into. The kind of replacement windows Austin homeowners deserve should allow customers to feel that the purchase indeed provides value for money.
As such, All-Tex Home Improvement Services announced that the Simonton green windows come with two additional warranties: transferable and lifetime glass replacement.
Most warranties are voided when a home gets sold, and very few companies offer transferable warranties. However, All-Tex Home Improvement Services reasoned that window performance is not selective on who occupies the home. Transferable warranties allow buyers of the property to enjoy the same rights as the original purchaser of the replacement windows.
Apart from a transferable warranty, the greener windows also come with a lifetime replacement guarantee on glass units. They use tempered glass which is four times harder to break than the regular kind. Savings, according to the company, come in the form of increased home protection against burglary attempts.
The replacement windows are sourced from trusted manufacturer Simonton - member of the Fortune Brands Home and Security family and two-time leader of a customer satisfaction survey on window performance.
With its preference for greener glass units and the inclusion of a comprehensive warranty package, All-Tex Home Improvement Services said it aims to make window replacement an eco-friendly, value-for-money, and long-term investment for Texas locals.
