Some Idaho homeowners may be concerned with using too much glass in their home. They are interested in building a house that keeps the warmth inside during cold months and may think that glass will not provide as much insulation as a solid wall. On the contrary, technology has improved over the last eight to 10 years, and glass used in the construction of a home can have almost as much R-value as a wall. Average heat loss through these energy-efficient windows has been reduced by up to 40%, and their R-value is five. This highly evolved glass is intended to be used in new builds and remodels.
