Energy-efficient window replacements are included in almost all hotel brand's PIP standards.
These upgrades are meant to help hotels save on energy costs, reduce noise, and as an added bonus, improve the environment.
At Amerail Systems we're the go-to energy efficient window installers for top hotels.
ENERGY EFFICIENT WINDOWS IN HOTELS
Noise-reducing hotel windows work by slowing the transfer of sound waves.
Energy-efficient windows achieve this by optimizing the air space, mixing the thicknesses of glass or by adding additional panes of glass.
Energy-efficient windows are great for keeping rooms warm in the winter and preventing damage to hotel interiors in the summer.
Frost buildup is prevented with energy-efficient windows causing less need for room heating and lower energy costs.
These windows also reduce ultraviolet (UV) rays by up to 75% protecting your hotel's interior from sun damage such as faded artwork, fabric, carpet, and wood.
- Helps to Prevent Drafts in Guest Rooms
- Reduces Noise Pollution
- Less Need for Adjusting Heating/Cooling in Guest Rooms
- Environmentally Conscious
- Interiors Look Less Faded/Last Longer
Improving energy efficiency reduces greenhouse gases, which contribute to climate change.

Heat Gain | Heat Loss
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient measures how much solar radiation passes through your window and is released as heat inward. The lower a window's solar heat gain coefficient, the less solar heat it transmits.
U-Factor is the rate of heat loss of a window assembly. The lower the U-factor, the greater a window's resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating properties.
Relative Heat Gain is the amount of heat gain through a glass product taking into consideration the effects of solar heat gain (SHGC) and conductive heat gain (U-value). The lower the RHG, the greater the glass restricts heat gain.
In our Houston Marriott window replacement project, we were able to reduce the SHGC to .28 from .82 meaning a reduction of 54% in solar heat gain.
With this project we were also able to reduce the U-Factor between 67% and 75% depending on the time of year and current weather conditions.
At the Houston North Marriot we were able to reduce the relative heat gain from 201 to 67 which represents a 66% reduction in relative heat gain.
