Energy Efficient Window Replacements and your return on investment

Energy Efficient Window ReplacementsEnergy efficient windows for your home

Energy efficient window replacements provide a return on your investment in more than just financial ways. Look out your windows and what do you see? It has been said that windows are the eyes of the home. They are literally your view of the outside world. No other home shares your exact viewpoint, and your windows should be just as customized as you and your viewpoint. It does not matter if your view is the city skyline, the ocean, or your cozy backyard; windows are your viewing screen that lets you see the world from the comfort of your reclining chair. As beautiful as your view may be, those same windows can wreak havoc on your wallet if they are not energy efficient. In certain parts of the country, as much as 25% of heat can be lost through windows. Consider the following tips to keep your windows energy efficient.

ENERGY STAR® windows

ENERGY STAR® is the government-backed program that establishes requirements for energy efficiency for more than 50 types of products, including homes and buildings. The energy star label on a product means that it features the quality and performance that concerned consumers expect.

Double your panes

If your home still has single-pane windows, you may want to consider doubling up with gas-filled double-pane windows. If you live in traditionally colder climates, you should consider low-E glass. Argon and krypton gases can be used between the double panes of windows instead of air as a means to increase insulation and energy efficiency. Low-e coatings is an acronym for low-emittance coatings that help the window reflect harmful rays from the sun, while absorbing warm rays or keeping warmth inside in the winter.

Install window treatments

Installing window treatments can help keep heating and cooling costs down. Keeping your drapes closed in the winter can retain heat and block out the sun during warmer temperatures, thus keeping cool air inside. Window treatments include everything from awnings, to blinds, to storm panels.

Window Repair

Windows that leak air, rotted wooden window frames, and missing caulk are energy efficient issues; they are also signs that you need window repair. Many homeowners make window repairs an annual event. If this is the case, they should consider energy efficient window replacements.

Understanding the advantages of sliding windows

Sliding WindowsPopular replacement windows

Some homeowners find the term for different styles of windows to be a little confusing when sales people refer to energy efficient replacement sliding windows. It is easy to visualize windows that must be cranked or pushed outwards. All other windows slide open and closed. However, there are separate designations that make it simple to understand. Windows that slide vertically (in an up and down motion) are called casement windows. In most cases, when we refer to sliding windows, people are referring to windows that slide horizontally, or from side to side. Horizontal sliding glass windows have some very distinct benefits or advantages over other styles of windows. This would explain why they are the most popular style of windows with homebuilders and designers.

Advantages of horizontal windows

Horizontal sliding windows carry definitive advantages for homeowners when it comes to both the aesthetics and the safety of your home. It almost seems as if sliding windows were designed with the modern home in mind. In reality, sliding windows are an ingenious innovation when it comes to ease of operation and simplicity of design.

For example, sliding windows give your home a more modern look. Casement windows have an old-fashioned look that works for older traditional style homes. Sliding windows are usually shorter and wider by design, which means that they are situated a little higher on the wall, allowing homeowners to place furniture under the window. They allow for greater flexibility for interior decor. At the same time, sliding windows have enough surface area to allow sufficient light into the home.

Cost efficient windows

Since most modern homes come with horizontal sliding windows, they are easy to find in standard sizes, whereas casement and crank windows are usually designed for special situations. For example, crank windows may need to open to the left on one side of the house and may need to open to the right on another side of the house. This can usually add to the price of windows because you will need to buy windows in specific configurations. Horizontal sliding windows have considerably fewer parts than casement windows or crank windows. Hence, there are fewer parts to wear out and to replace over the life of the windows. Horizontal sliding windows can be purchased in any possible energy efficient configuration, making them a cost efficient window for homes and businesses.

Energy efficient sliding windows in Greensboro, NC

Let Triad Installations of Greensboro, NC, replace your dilapidated, high maintenance windows with quality, horizontal sliding windows. These quality replacement windows feature computer fusion-welded joints that not only will create a stronger frame, but will also eliminate corner seams.

Replace my old house windows with energy efficient windows

I have owned my home for over 20 years now.  Over this period of time, I painted, replaced the floor tiles, and even replaced roof shingles. However, the one thing that I have yet to tackle, is our dilapidated aluminum windows. The biggest problem is that they are constantly sweating, or have condensation, thus, there is a considerable build up of mold on the frames and ledges. This situation is unsightly and the widows so uneffective, that replacement is my only option.

The options available in replacement windows can get overwhelming unless you determine exactly what your needs are. First and foremost, I want my new windows to be energy efficient. A big concern was that changing the windows would change the original character of our home. Just as importantly, we want a great value, and we want our window to last a long time.

Energy-efficient windows in my Greensboro NC home

Energy efficient windows prevent heat from entering your home in the summer, and trap heat inside in the winter. This works because of a coating of silver on the glass. This helps reflect UV light and prevents excess heat from entering the house, or heat inside the house from dissipating through the window. This can reliably maintain your home’s temperature at comfortable  levels regardless of the time of year. A research done by Energy Star states that replacing normal windows with energy-efficient windows saves you around 40% of your normal energy costs per year.

Windows with low-e glass insulates the home. Imagine it to work like a thermos; they are actually double paned glass. In the summer months, only a little heat penetrates through the window, preventing it from affecting  the lower temperature inside your home. In the cold months, the window retains heat from inside, maintaining the comfortable indoor temperature. An upgrade option is to have argon gas injected between the panes to give the window increased insulating properties. In addition, the vinyl window frame material also contributes to the insulating efficiency of a window. It is counterproductive to have the great technology of energy efficient windows, and then install them improperly.

There are a lot of options out there, but we decided that ViewPoint windows are the best combination of energy efficiency, quality construction, and classic beauty. They have a lifetime waranty, energy star approval, and offer a design the helps our home to maintain its original character.  The cost efficient windows from VeiwPoint begin paying for themselves the day that they are installed. Speaking of installation, ViewPiont Windows also recommends a certified installer here in the Greensboro area.

My experience with energy efficient window replacements

Using energy efficient windows to replace my old windows

I love learning new things and this week I learned so much about energy efficient window replacements. It all began with our family commitment to go “green” based on my daughter writing a report on the same subject for school. As far as caring for the environment, Greensboro, NC lives up to its reputation for being a progressive city. In our house, the first step we took was converting to a tankless water heater. Next spring we will turn our annual garden into an aquaponics system. Before this winter arrives my husband and I decided to install energy efficient window replacements. The great thing about this project is that as soon as they are installed we will see a dramatic decrease in our heating and cooling bills, thus, we become more energy efficient and the investment starts paying for itself right away.

To be honest, those windows needed to be replaced anyway. Our home always reminded me of the guy who dresses up in a tuxedo then put on tennis shoes. We have all this beautiful heirloom furniture from the turn of the century, oriental rugs and timeless brass pieces; yet we would need to make sure that the drapes hid our outdated delaminated windows. Half of the windows would not stay open without a prop, and the other half would never open.  Energy efficient or not, the change was necessary.

Energy efficient and green technology

The windows we selected are manufactured by ViewPoint Windows & Doors. They are beautiful high-performance, eco-friendly windows and doors. The Low-E glass and our Warm-Edge Insulated Glass Sealant System make our home 40% more energy efficient overnight. Viewpoint, in and of itself is operating in a “green” way. They use premium vinyl to maintain the highest quality and to reduce waste, and they also recycle their own vinyl scrap to maximize yield and minimize the impact on the local landfills. As much as 28% of the glass components are made up from reclaimed glass. In addition, it enables us to meet or exceed the highest energy standards.

I was concerned about buying the wonderful windows and then handing them over to an installer who did not understand green technology. ViewPoint Windows & Doors has a certified installer, Triad Installations, who handles installations in our area as well as High Point and Winston-Salem.

E glass coatings

When it comes to the insulating properties of the windows we will purchase, we have two options. The first option is Low-E, which is the most effective solar glass available. It has layers of silver coating on it that keeps out the heat in the summer, and keeps in the heat in the winter. If you desire even more thermal protection, you can get the same double paned windows with argon gas between the panes for the lowest possible E-rating available for windows.

A trustworthy installer

As I mentioned before, I was concerned about finding the right installer. Triad Installations of Greensboro is not only a certified installer of ViewPoint windows; they are experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly. Triad Installations stands behind its work with a true understanding of energy efficiency, yet they operate with a code of honor that wins over your trust and confidence.  Visit their website for more information, or call them for a free estimate for energy efficient window replacements.
