ENERGY EFFICIENCY
 
 

Northeast Building Products offers two optional Camelot® Performance Packages which feature the latest and most innovative energy efficiency technologies. From Sashlite’s® revolutionary integrated spacer to energy-saving Low-E pyrolytic hard-coat glass options, Camelot® Performance Package windows will help reduce home-heating and cooling costs...while providing you and your family with year-round comfort, dependability and style. Below we provide a brief overview of how environmental factors influence window performance:




Convection
    
When warm air from inside the home meets a cold window, a chilly, circulatory draft can occur. Camelot® Performance Package windows can help reduce convection related problems.


Air Infiltration
    
Air leakage through unsealed gaps can account for up to 10% of the energy usage in a home. Camelot® Performance Package windows offer premium airflow protection.


Radiant Heat Loss
    
Clear glass absorbs interior heat and radiates it outdoors. Camelot® Low-E glass coatings greatly reduce radiant heat loss, saving you money in the winter.


Conduction
NBp
The direct transfer of heat through the window frame. Camelot® Performance Package windows reduce thermal heat loss due to conduction.

Solar Radiation
    
NBp
In the summer months, solar radiation can dramatically increase home cooling costs. In addition, UV radiation can fade and damage interior furnishings.

Camelot® Performance Package windows feature a Low-E micro-coating which greatly reduces solar radiation and provides superior UV protection.


Light Transmittance
    
NBp
Camelot® Low-E coatings allow short wave visible light to be absorbed through the window, which reduces lighting costs throughout the year and is reradiated as heat in the winter.


Condensation
    
Condensation can damage window frames, sills, and interior shades while contributing to mold and indoor humidity. Northeast offers warm-edge spacers for superior condensation resistance.


 
Thermal Transmittance and Resistance (U and R-Values)
    
Thermal transmittance, also known as U-value, is the rate of heat transfer between the interior and exterior of a window. The R-value of a window, also known as “thermal resistance”, is simply the reciprocal of the U-value (1/U). So if a window has a U-Value of 0.20, it will have an R-Value of 5 (1/0.20).

The higher the R-value of a window, the greater its insulating properties, and thus the greater its energy efficiency. Camelot® R-5 Ultra Performance Package windows feature one of the highest double=glazed R-values in the industry, for the ultimate in energy-efficiency and thermal performance.




     
Tax Credit
 
  The tax credit made available to homeowners as part of Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, signed into law December 17, 2010, extends certain energy efficient tax credits for qualifying windows, skylights, and exterior doors for a period of one year...[more]
