Air Leakage

It's hard to believe but did you know that brand new windows leak air?? It's true and there's even a performance number called air infiltration to measure it. Could you imagine the first cold and windy day after you just spent thousands of dollars on brand windows and you feel a draft on the back of your neck?

Minimizing air infiltration is critical to maintaining a comfortable environment inside your home and our Imperial LS windows are the best on the market allowing only .02 CFM(cubic feet per minute) of air leakage per minute!

Leaky windows cause drafty homes. Imperial LS windows greatly minimize air leaks with numerous air barriers designed into our advanced sill design. They prevent air from forcing its way into your home. This is critical to your comfort.

Poorly designed windows don’t have built-in airlocks, weather stripping, and barriers necessary to keep air from forcing its way in. Without these design features air will push between the sash meeting rails and around the sash perimeter where it meets the frame and sill.

We know how uncomfortable a home with leaky windows will be. So we loaded the Imperial LS window with weather barriers that go far beyond the industry standard and other manufacturer’s window designs.

Imperial LS windows are 7 times more airtight than the industry average range of traditional VINYL residential high performance double hung windows such as Alside, Simonton, and Champion from .11 CFM to .21 CFM.* For example, it would take a combination of 15 Imperial LS windows leak as much air as just TWO of the industry average traditional vinyl residential high performance double hung windows. (Industry average of air infiltration of one traditional vinyl window is 144 oz./min., whereas Imperial LS windows only allow 19.2 oz./min..)

Imperial LS windows are over 11 times more airtight than the industry average range of traditional WOOD residential double hung windows such as Pella, Marvin, Jeld-Wen, and Andersen from .12 CFM to .30 CFM.* For example, it would take a combination of 23 Imperial LS windows to leak as much air as just TWO of the industry average traditional wood residential double hung windows. (Industry average of air infiltration of one traditional wood window is 220.8 oz./min., whereas Imperial LS windows only allow 19.2 oz./min..)
