Energy HSG Glass Package for Amherst Windows

Windows - which are about 80% glass - can be a significant source of energy loss on a home. You might think of the glass as being fragile, yet it's one of the most important elements in achieving super-efficient, weathertight performance. An exceptionally strong barrier, Amherst windows are expertly crafted with Energy HSG Low-E insulating glass utilizing double-strength glass and argon gas to increase thermal efficiency.

                                                                                                           

Energy HSG insulated glass units are built with the PPG Intercept Warm-Edge Spacer, which features a unique, one-piece metal alloy, U-channel design that helps block conducted heat loss through the windows. Its sealed, one piece-construction makes Intercept spacers stronger and better at retaining insulating gas than many conventional designs. Intercept is nearly 25% more effective than a traditional box metal spacer at the edge of the glass unit. 

Designed to meet the rigors of cold Canadian northern climates, our specially formulated Energy HSG glass system maximizes the advantages of solar heat during the winter. Utilizing the precise angles of the sun's rays, the Low-E glass technology captures solar heat during cold winter months to infuse your home with natural warmth and sunlight. With Energy HSG, you'll enjoy the cozy comfort of the sun's warmth on a cold winter's day, while also reducing your heating costs.
