Famous Texas real estate developer Marcus Hiles gives important advice to occupants and home seekers that can help them reduce their energy bills significantly in the hot summer. Marcus Hiles, Chairman and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, follows these same methods in every house he builds. First, he recommends incorporating windows with a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.22 to 0.24, such as the Cascade Low E Argon Gas Win Pro Series. He adds that old windows belonging to the 1980s will lose up to 100 times more energy than a wholly insulated solid wall when heat transfers. Older casements, transoms, and sliders may look extraordinary but having modern windows and frames stop air as well as energy leaks, cutting heat loss by as much as 75%.
