SAN FRANCISCO (June 9, 2010) — Milgard Windows & Doors has added triple glazing as an option to its Essence™ Series wood windows, vinyl Tuscany® Series, and its fiberglass Ultra™ and WoodClad™ Series windows and patio doors, creating clear energy performance advantages for homeowners. The three-pane option provides extra insulating opportunities without compromising style or curb appeal.
"With two separate insulating air spaces, we can provide a significant energy performance upgrade with minimal cost increase for the homeowner," said Scott Morgan, VP of Sales and Marketing at Milgard. "Our triple-glazed windows come standard with dual SunCoat® Low E glass and dual EdgeGardMAX™ spacers to interrupt wasteful heat flow through the window and save on heating and cooling costs."
Milgard's triple-glazing options meet or exceed 2010 ENERGY STAR® qualifications, offering the best U-value and solar heat gain performance possible. With the triple-glazed option, most Ultra, WoodClad and Tuscany Series windows and doors meet the 2009/2010 Energy Tax Stimulus qualifications, and all are backed by Milgard's industry-leading Full Lifetime Warranty with Glass Breakage.
Homeowners have additional options such as upgrading to dual SunCoatMAX® Low-E glass, and in most elevations, argon gas blend for additional insulating performance and energy savings. Aesthetic options include obscure or patterned glass on the center pane and simulated divided lite grids.
