Increase your comfort and savings with energy-efficient windows, doors and siding from Window World of Lake Charles.
Low-E glass is brilliantly engineered to minimize the amount of UV rays and unwanted temperatures into your home.
Intercept™ warm-edge spacer insulates the exterior edges of a sealed unit and can tack on 5% savings on monthly energy costs.
Vinyl window frames are constructed with a complex array of compartments to help trap and repel unwanted weather.
Airtight weatherstripping seals the sides, top and bottom frames of your door to prevent air infiltration.
Insulated polyurethane core provides an additional thermal barrier.
Composite frames resist rotting, rusting and warping to withstand constant exposure to the elements.
Decorative and ENERGY STAR-compliant door lites that allow light in but keep the elements out.
Built with rigid foam insulation to reduce energy loss and reinforce the siding for smoothness and straight lines.
High-density insulation to minimize outdoor noise for a quieter indoor ambiance and loss of wanted heat or air.
Fully rolled over, double-thick nail hem anchors panels to the wall; tested to withstand harsh weather.
Since 80% of a window is glass, substantial heating and cooling savings come from improved glass performance. Our combination of UV-filtering Low-E glass (LG), insulating argon gas and the Intercept™ warm-edge spacer system creates significant energy efficiency. Together they can cut the damaging effects of the sun, which can lead to faded carpets, curtains and furniture. As a result, your monthly utility bills will reflect savings year-round.
In winter, a warmer glass temperature is maintained, increasing the R-value by an additional 104%.
In summer, a 48% reduction in solar heat gain helps cut air conditioning costs.
The window shown on the left is a clear insulated glass unit, and the window on the right is a Solarban® 60 Low-E insulated glass unit. Using thermography, you can clearly see the transmission of solar heat on the clear insulated glass window – indicated by the green, yellow and orange colors from the heat scale. When compared to the extremely low transmission of solar heat on the Solarban® 60 Low-E insulated glass unit, the best choice for your home is clear.

ENERGY STAR is a government-sanctioned symbol for energy efficiency, credibility, sustainability and cost-savings for the consumer. Browse below to explore what’s required to become ENERGY STAR-certified and what it looks like in your region of the country.
U-Factor measures the rate at which heat flows through an object. The lower your U-value, the less heat your windows allow through them.
R-Value determines how well the insulation inside your window is performing. The higher your R-value, the better insulated your window is.
Window World of Lake Charles is located in ENERGY STAR’s Southern Climate category. To maintain certification here, our windows and doors must maintain a U-Value of ≤ .40 and an R-Factor from 13 to 21.
Low-E glass is a type of glass that has been treated with a microscopic, metallic coating designed to filter certain types of light into your home. The glass blocks heat gain from the sun’s reflected rays in warmer months and allows warmth from the sun’s shorter rays to flow into your home during cooler seasons.
By adding Low-E glass to a standard insulating glass unit, you can improve the energy performance of your window year round by 24%.
Our Intercept™ warm-edge spacer system is a new-age technology used to extend the shelf-life of window glass by reducing condensation build-up and edge-to-glass temperatures. Designed to seal in escaping heat, this spacer system is the most effective of its kind.
By adding the Intercept™ Warm Edge Spacer System, you can increase the efficiency by yet another 5%.
Argon is a colorless, odorless and nonreactive insulating property with extremely high density and extremely low thermal conductivity, making it an ideal agent for year-round comfort.
By adding argon gas filling to the window, which is a better insulator than normal air, you can increase the efficiency by another 6%.
Energy-efficient windows, doors and siding are a smart investment for any homeowner. We’ve added Low-E glass to our standard insulating glass unit to avoid possible air leakage, which helps keep your home insulated and your utility bills at an all time low.
