Energy Efficient Windows
In climates that mainly require cooling, non-energy efficient windows can be a major source of unwanted heat gain. In recent years, low-E coatings that reject solar heat without darkening the glass have undergone a technological revolution. It is now possible to significantly reduce solar heat gain improving comfort while providing clear views and daylight.

It’s A Simple Three-Step Process Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are mounted on your roof, where they collect energy from the sun in the form of direct current electricity. The direct current electricity is then converted by an inverter into alternating current electricity for use by your home. The alternating current electricity is fed directly into your home, just like it is from your electricity provider. And since the solar energy system works in tandem with your electricity provider, you’ll continue to get electricity from them when you need more than the solar energy system can provide (e.g. during overcast weather and at night). All you need is at least 100 square feet of un-shaded roof area facing predominantly southward (a little to the east or west is okay).
