Daylighting and Your Paterson Home

Paterson has a rich, diverse culture and a long history in New Jersey. The city is divided into several neighborhoods, each of which has its own unique character and flair. From the creative and bohemian Great Falls Historic District to the fast paced, commercial Downtown Paterson, the city reflects a number of trends and influences. When you're choosing window replacement products for your Paterson home, the materials you select should complement the style of your residence as well as improving the energy efficiency of your house.

Daylighting is an important factor to consider when you're planning Paterson window replacement and the size of your planned rough opening. If the rooms of your NJ home appear dim or hazy, your windows may not be transmitting adequate light. You may also notice a glare in your rooms, or detect signs of fading in your furniture or carpets. The type of glass in a window can play a big part in how effectively your room is illuminated. Although it's possible to reduce glare with solar blinds or other specialized window treatments, you can address the root of the problem with Paterson window replacement.

The use of artificial lights during the daytime consumes extra energy, which can drive up your utility bills. With skillful daylighting, or the use of natural sunlight to illuminate a room, you can reduce your household's use of artificial light during the day. Look for replacement products that enhance the transmission of natural sunlight to maximize this natural resource in your NJ home. If you are installing new windows, consider positioning the openings on the north or south of the room so that they attract the most light during the day without gathering excessive heat.

The NFRC label lists a product's Visible Transmittance rating, or VT. The VT measures how much sunlight passes through a Paterson window. In New Jersey, where winters can be cold and summers are often humid and hot, the need for adequate daylighting must be balanced with the need to retain heat during the winter and minimize solar heat gain during the summer. Paterson window replacement professionals specialize in selecting products that address the heating, cooling and energy needs of your home.

Energy Efficiency for Skylights

A skylight can flood a room with natural light and enhance airflow, but skylights are also a source of energy loss. Any of the windows in your house, including skylights, can compromise the insulation of your home and drive up your utility bills if the glass or frame is not performing adequately. If your skylight assembly hasn't been replaced in years, replacement with a high performance product can make the room more comfortable and improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems.

Paterson window replacement models for skylights are available in a variety of materials that can maximize the insulation of your home. Wood, vinyl and fiberglass models generally earn high ratings for resisting heat loss, when energy efficient frames are combined with high performance glass. The glass you choose makes an enormous difference in the insulating properties of a Paterson window replacement model.

Although some inoperable skylights are glazed with plastic or acrylic products, these materials can turn yellow and are generally not as energy efficient as glass. Double glazed glass is designed to buffer your interior against the effects of extreme heat or cold with a layer of compressed air or argon gas enclosed between two panes. To prevent the buildup of heat through your skylight when the summer sun strikes the roof, consider a tinted glazing that resists solar heat gain. The NFRC label lists the product's solar heat gain co-efficient, or SHGC.

Paterson window replacement professionals can guide you through the replacement process. From selecting the most efficient models for your home to having the old units replaced, your provider can assist you with each step. Gather multiple estimates from providers in your area to find top-notch service at a competitive price.
