When you are thinking about energy efficiency, think about Marvin and Integrity from Marvin windows and doors.
Marvin and Integrity windows and doors have customized solutions for your project’s unique needs.
ENERGY STAR is a federal program that determines where a variety of products, including windows and doors, meet certain energy-efficiency standards. Only products that achieve these specific benchmarks can display the ENERGY STAR label. Marvin offers a wide selection of windows and doors that meet ENERGY STAR standards. ENERGY STAR standards vary by climate – and Marvin has the ENERGY STAR options for you.
Marvin offers thousand of windows and doors with two or three panes of glass that are energy efficient, versatile and beautiful. Marvin can fill the spaces between the glass with special gases that slow the transfer of heat that further increase the insulating power of a window or door.
Did you know?
Fiberglass is unaffected by water or temperature fluctuations. Integrity windows and doors are made with Ultrex®, a pultruded fiberglass that outperforms and outlasts vinyl, aluminum and other composite materials. Andersen’s Fibrex® is made of a vinyl/wood composite and there is no fiberglass in Fibrex. Fibrex is stronger than vinyl but not as durable as fiberglass. The issue with Andersen’s windows lies in the fact that there are multiple materials used in the exterior. Multiple materials expand and weather at different rates, resulting in a loss of seal (drafts and leaks).
Vinyl windows are your least expensive option and most commonly installed windows. Vinyl is low maintenance and unaffected by water but nowhere near as strong as fiberglass or even composite windows. Vinyl will turn brittle with age and exposure to cold. The frames and sashes have thin, flexible walls, can’t be repaired and don’t take paint well. Corners are also typically heat-welded together, leaving obvious and unsightly bumps.
When it comes to energy efficiency, choose the window option that is best for you and your home.
