Energy Efficient |
Once the installation of your new windows is complete you will see an improvement in energy efficiency. You will see a reduction in the solar heat gain coefficient, winter and summer u-factor as well as sound reduction. Check out our example of how we can improve your energy efficiency below.
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.
Sound Reducing |
Noise-reducing windows work by slowing the transfer of sound waves. As sound waves travel through different materials, the waves can be absorbed, reflected or minimized. In windows this can be done by optimizing the air space, mixing the thicknesses of glass or by adding additional panes of glass.
EXTERIOR WATER INFILTRATION & EIFS REPAIR
Amerail will utilize our 35 years of experience to locate the source of the water infiltration on the exterior building envelop and repair the damaged framing, sheathing and EIFS Damage
When needed, we work with numerous engineering firms across the country to evaluate these types of damages and complete the most economical repair possible. We are able to use our knowledge and experience to find the source of the water infiltration and repair the affected areas to maintain the structural integrity of your building envelope.
