Living room with lots of windows and natural light

Installing energy-efficient windows can reduce energy use and cut your monthly heating and cooling bills. The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that 30% or more of a home’s energy can be lost through inefficient windows. Can you afford to continue to waste up to one-third of the money you spend every month on utility bills?

WMGB Home Improvement installs replacement windows that are among the most efficient on the market, with superior energy performance engineered into the frames and glass.

How to Determine the Efficiency of Grand Rapids Replacement Windows

How can you tell if a window is energy-efficient? Standards have been established by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), an independent, non-profit organization that administers the only nationally accepted rating system to measure the energy performance of windows, doors and skylights. The NFRC provides fair, accurate and reliable energy performance ratings, allowing architects, builders, code officials, contractors and homeowners to compare products and make informed choices.

  • U-Value. The most important measure of a window’s performance is its U-value, the rate of heat flow through a window. The lower the U-value, the more energy-efficient the window will be. U-value measures the entire window unit and is the only measurement accepted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR program.
  • R-Value. R-value is the measure of the resistance of glass to the flow of heat. The higher the R-value, the better the glass will be at insulating your home. However, R-value is not an accepted form of measurement by the NFRC or ENERGY STAR, as it does not measure the overall window unit.
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient. Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) measures how well a product blocks heat caused by sunlight. SHGC is expressed as a number between 0 and 1. The lower a window’s solar heat gain coefficient, the less solar heat it transmits.

Energy-Efficient Glass Reduces Monthly Utility Bills

The glass packages available in replacement windows installed by WMGB Home Improvement include some of the most advanced features available today. At the heart of our replacement windows is a technologically advanced glass called Low-E (low emissivity) glass. Low-E glass maximizes your home’s efficiency by reducing the amount of heat entering or escaping. Microscopically thin layers of oxidized metal are applied to the glass surface, allowing filtered light to pass through while reflecting most heat energy back to its source – an incredibly efficient way to reduce energy loss.

I had one problem window in my basement where the previous homeowner framed below ground level with wood.it created water leaking into my basement. After a recommendation from my daughter, I called and booked with WMGB. Because of their pricing special I replaced all my basement windows. The fellows who did the work were polite, friendly, hardworking. Anytime I contacted the office, the staff was also good to work with. The new windows are beautiful.

I was pleased with the sales visit and quote process. Much of it was done through pictures and ipad before I had arrived, given our phone discusssion of the desired work. Price was relatively good, so I went forward with the job. Job turned out as expected. Work was efficient and no hang-ups along the way. The only thing is, I had an entire day window for the job, which was fine, but I would have appreciated a call when I was next, or someone was on the way. Nice to have that heads up, especially while I was working regardless. Also, I'd like to see the installers have a badge, a company shirt and vehicle, and to introduce themselves by name. It just comes off as more professional, as opposed to a plain-clothed person with an unmarked vehicle and no ID arriving at the door. Again though, project outcome and price were great.

Best prices on glass block windows in town! Brandon came in, got straight to work, and had four windows completely installed within around three hours. I highly recommend WMGB for any of your window and glass block needs!

My new glass block looks great. Brandon and Mark did a great job. They ran into an unforseen issue but were quick on their feet and came up with a mitigation plan, then proceeded to hit it out of the park. Very professional. Thanks for the great job!
