What is SHGC?

SHGC stands for Solar Heat Gain Co-efficient.  A fraction of solar radiation admitted through a window or door (either transmitted directly and/or absorbed) is subsequently released as head inside the home.  The lower the SHGC rating of a window the less solar heat it transmits and the greater its ability to block heat gained from the sun in summer.  A window / door with a high SHGC rating is more effective at collecting solar heat gain during winter and keeping the home warm.  Our windows and doors have a SHGC rating of 0.45

I couldn't be more pleased with my double glazed windows and doors. The difference it has made to our standard of living is invaluable. We find ourselves not using as many heating appliances in order to stay at a comfortable temperature, a significant reduction in noise has been noted and the level of security they provide has helped to promote peace of mind when we are away from home.
