Understanding Your Window Design Options
At least in the state of LA, two of the most important measurements to understand when it comes to a Kenner window replacement job are the SHGC, or solar heat gain coefficient, and the VT, or visible transmittance, measurements. These measurements are especially important here, where the heat in the summer can be extremely tough to take, so you don't want to have to make your air conditioner work any harder than it has to or create window condensation. With a replacement window job, you're going to end up making your home's energy efficiency better, which will save money in the summer.
With a Kenner window replacement, you're going to have to pick a solar heat gain coefficient number for the glass in the replacement window frames. For an area that has a lot of sun, you want this number to be as small as possible so that you can keep as many of the sun's infrared rays out of your home as possible. With Kenner window replacement frames that have an SHGC of 0.25 or lower, you can block more of these rays, which will help your home stay cooler. Infrared rays carry heat through the window.
You'll also want to pay attention to the VT number with your Kenner window replacement products. This number gives you an indication of the amount of visible light that the replacement frame will allow through. Obviously, you want this number to be as high as possible, so you can see out of your Kenner window replacement frames as easily as possible. However, when you block some of the infrared rays from the sun, you're also going to block some of the visible light, so reducing the SHGC number while keeping a high VT number is a little tricky.
