All of our windows feature Edgetech Super Spacer® high performance insulating glass units. Panels using the Super Spacer sealing system test out more efficient than any other spacer system available. Our products utilize these glass units, bringing you the Warm Edge technology that make our windows and replacement glass panels second to none in the energy efficiency area and the lowest condensation rate.
The Problem: Many of today’s energy efficient windows offer glass packages with “Warm Edge Technology.” The problem is that highly conductive metal-based insulating glass spacers are often used in these new windows.
A new window can lose up to 50% of its overall stated R-value with a metal-based spacer at the edge of the glass. R stands for the “resistance” of the transfer of heat or cold through a solid object. So, a higher R-value means better insulation against heating and cooling loss.
The edge of the insulating glass is the most vulnerable to heating and cooling loss. This usually leads to condensation. It’s a problem that looks unsightly, and over time, it will stain wood, peel paint and rot frames.
Not only that, but window condensation can contribute to mold growth, a sinister presence hidden from sight deep inside window and wall openings.
In fact, visible mold can often be found in poorly insulated or installed windows. Mold is more and more being linked to child asthma plus increases in general respiratory illness, allergies and outbreaks of fungal diseases.
The Solution: Keep moisture off the glass with the warmest inside surface temperatures possible.
The primary window condensation culprit is its insulating glass spacer. Traditional metal spacers can conduct heat and cold – causing condensation at the edge of the glass.
Convection currents further concentrate cold air along the bottom edge of glass making that area the most vulnerable.
Only a warmer edge all the way around will strike at the heart of the problem.
The world’s only TrueWARM® edge occurs with Super Spacer®, an insulating foam spacer whose use helps reduce condensation and allows for comfortable household humidity levels. That’s the Health Smart Windows® advantage.
