Door Color Options
There are many color options available for doors, depending on the material and finish, as well as door type and manufacturer. When selecting a door color, it’s important to consider the style of the home, the surrounding environment, and personal preferences. Some homeowners may prefer a more traditional color, such as white, adobe, or natural wood stain, while others may want to make a bolder statement with a brighter color, such as red or blue. Ultimately, the right door color will depend on your taste and the specific needs of the home.
Door Glass Options
When selecting door glass, it’s important to consider your specific needs, including privacy, security, and energy efficiency. Some homeowners may prefer clear glass for maximum natural light and visibility, while others may want frosted or decorative glass for added privacy and style. Ultimately, the right door glass will depend on the individual homeowner’s taste and the specific needs of the home.
Energy Star Rated
Energy Star-rated door glass is designed to provide better insulation and energy efficiency than standard door glass with the use of special coatings and filled with gasses such as argon or krypton. This helps to reduce heat transfer and improve thermal efficiency.
UV-blocking door glass, also known as low-E (low-emissivity) glass, is designed to block harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun while still allowing visible light to pass through. UV rays can cause damage to skin, furnishings, and artwork and can also contribute to fading and discoloration over time.
Low-E (low-emissivity) glass is coated with a thin layer of metal or metal oxide to improve energy efficiency. This coating is designed to reflect heat back into the room during the winter and keep heat out during the summer, helping to reduce energy costs and improve the overall comfort of a home
Obscure glass is a type of door glass that is designed to provide privacy and reduce visibility while still allowing natural light to enter a room. It is typically used in bathrooms, entryways, or other areas where privacy is desired and can be made with a variety of different patterns or textures, including frosted, etched, rain, or patterned designs.
Tempered door glass is a safety glass that is specially treated to make it more resistant to breakage and less dangerous when it breaks. Tempered glass, when broken, shatters into small, rounded pieces, rather than sharp, jagged shards, reducing the risk of injury. It is best used near entryways/doors as well as bathrooms in showers and over bathtubs.
About Energy-Star Window Ratings
U-Factor ( ↓ 0.30)
U-factor is a measure of the rate of heat transfer through the window assembly, including the frame and glazing. The lower the U-factor, the more energy-efficient the window is, as it will transfer less heat from the interior of the building to the exterior. For our area in the Albuquerque region, U-Factor needs to be below 0.30 to qualify as Energy Star Rated.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, SHGC ( ↓ 0.30)
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient measures the heat gain from the sun entering your home. It indicates how well a window can block heat from the sun. A lower SHGC means that the window will transmit less solar heat, while a higher SHGC means that more solar heat will be transmitted through the window. For our area in the Albuquerque region, SHGC needs to be below 0.30 to qualify as Energy Star Rated.
Visible Transmittance (VT)
Visible Transmittance is a measure of how much natural/visible light is transmitted through a window or other glazing material without transmitting heat. A high VT allows more natural light into a building, which can help reduce the need for artificial lighting and improve indoor comfort. However, the VT of a window can also affect privacy and glare and may need to be balanced with other factors such as solar heat gain and energy efficiency.
Air leakage refers to the amount of air that can pass through a window, which can contribute to energy loss and drafts in a building. To meet Energy Star requirements, windows must have a maximum allowable air leakage rate, which varies depending on the window type and size. The allowable air leakage rate is determined by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), which tests windows to determine their energy performance.
