We improve your comfort and reduce your utility bill by keeping energy from
flying out your windows.
Are you letting energy efficiency escape you? More importantly,
is energy escaping your home and unnecessarily inflating your utility bill?
An infrared thermograph identifies sources of heat loss in this home. Red indicates zones of maximum heat
loss. Images such as this can be used to identify where improvement is most needed.
As a secondary sash system that provides the same energy savings as Energy Star® replacement windows,
QUANTAPANEL IGS installs over your existing windows— there is no need to rip them out!
QUANTAPANEL™ Insulating Glass System (IGS) can economically solve a key area of your home’s energy loss problem by
maximizing the energy efficiency of your existing windows.
Did you know you may now have the ability to reduce your annual energy bill by more than
25%—while at the same time, improve your personal comfort?
Typically, 50-60% of your household’s energy consumption is for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC). But
recent advancements for minimizing energy losses through a home’s structural components—known as the “building
envelope”—have created cost-effective solutions for homeowners. Thus, it is now economically feasible for you to
reduce your home’s HVAC losses by as much as 50-60%, by:
1. Sealing and weather-stripping;
2. Adding insulation to walls and attic and
3. Improving the thermal performance of existing windows—
this is where the QUANTAPANEL IGS comes in.
With windows accounting for as much as 1/6 of your home’s energy loss, they are a necessary target for improvement.
One way is through installing high performance (and high cost) Energy Star® replacement windows, which
can reduce energy losses by greater than 50%. But thanks to our technology, there is a less expensive option...
Our view from your windows:
A much more cost-effective way is through the QUANTAPANEL™
Insulating Glass System- Equally important, the
QUANTAPANEL IGS employs the same technology as new Energy
Star® replacement windows and has been demonstrated by the US
Department of Energy to reduce energy losses through existing
windows by greater than 50%. And it does so without having to
rip out your existing windows and install expensive new ones.
Other important considerations about the QUANTAPANEL IGS include:
How it works
As a secondary, operable sash system installed on the exterior of your
home, it goes directly over your existing single pane or double pane
windows. It employs the same energy loss reduction mechanisms with
the same results as those used by Energy Star® Replacement Windows:
1) reduced air infiltration, 2) a static air pocket or dead air space that
reduces both conductive and convective heat loss, and 3) a patented,
low-e coating on the glass that substantially decreases radiant heat loss.
Operating details—From specific measurements of your existing
windows, QUANTAPANEL IGS units are custom-built to fit. They
can be designed with horizontal or vertical sliding sashes with
screens, enabling you to open your windows as you normally
do when you do not operate heating or air conditioning. The
aesthetics of the home’s existing windows are preserved and, in
many cases, the exterior application protects the existing window
from inclement weather, thus reducing maintenance costs.
The U.S. Department of Energy with the support of Lawrence
Berkeley National Labs have performed field evaluations and
empirical tests to demonstrate and document the QUANTAPANEL
IGS technology’s performance and energy savings—shown
to reduce energy losses through existing single pane and
double pane metal-framed windows by more than 50%.
