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 want to thank you for the wonderful windows!  They look marvellous and you did a sterling job battling a sloping floor, wall and roof lines to place them in  position plum and square.  I couldn't be happier with the work from Elite DG and with the windows themselves. When the sun shone for about 20 minutes yesterday the inside house temperature went up by about 10 degrees.
