The Different Types of Heat Transfer That Can Affect the Replacement Windows on Your St. Petersburg, FL, Home

Replacement Windows St Petersburg FLWhen shopping for replacement windows in the St. Petersburg, Florida, area, you should educate yourself on the different types of heat transfer and how your new windows will help to combat them. Quality windows should help reduce all forms of heat transfer with features like multiple panes, gas fills, and frame types.

One type of heat transfer is conduction. Conduction is the transfer of heat through an object. For example, aluminum windows conduct heat well, so if it is hot outside, you could feel the heat through the window frame on the inside of your home. Generally, replacement windows with vinyl frames best help fight conduction in your St. Petersburg, FL, home. However, conductive heat transfer can also be contended with triple window panes.

Another type of heat transfer is radiation, which is the transfer of infrared energy and heat through space. This type of heat energy mainly applies to the heat we feel from the sun. Low-E and Solar-E coatings on the window help block UV rays from entering your home, and keep radiant heat from the inside of your home from escaping.

For gorgeous, durable, energy-efficient replacement windows in the St. Petersburg, Florida, area, turn to The Window Depot. Since 2009, we’ve been supplying Bay Area residents with Simonton and PGT manufactured windows that combat all types of heat transfer and air infiltration through features such as Low-E and Solar-E glass; single-, double-, and triple-panes; and vinyl frames.
