Customers want their windows to look great, but they also want windows that make them feel great. We call this comfort engineering. Whether the goal of a window upgrade is to add warmth to a sunny breakfast nook, or block UV rays in a south-facing living room, windows can have a significant influence on the air quality and temperature of a home.
Comfort Engineering isn’t nearly as complicated as it sounds. It simply means helping homeowners choose the correct window glazing for their home, with consideration given to the climate they live in and the direction each window faces.
By choosing between dualpane and tripane glass, and the correct low-emissive coating (Low-E) for each window, they can create a cozy, comfortable environment within their home, even if it’s freezing cold outside.

Comfort engineering can help:
- Regulate room temperature
- Harness exterior elements to increase natural heat gain in a room
- Block UV rays in order to decrease heat gain
- Increase feelings of comfort in a room with appropriate ventilation
Comfort engineering can also reduce the cost of utilities, year-round. A properly comfort-engineered home will require less air conditioning and heating in order to create a desirable environment.
Many JELD-WEN windows come with the option of dualpane or tripane glass, and multiple Low-E glazing options. Be sure to let homeowners know about these exciting energy-saving features.
