Choosing energy efficient windows

For example, in choosing the type of frame you must decided between aluminum, vinyl, composites, fiberglass and wood. Each material has different properties that affect both aesthetics and performance. Additionally, you have as many choices to choose from when it comes to the different configurations of window glass. Here we hope to offer some suggestions that will make your choices easier.

High performance replacement windows

Glass is the major component when it comes to high performance and energy efficiency. The best replacement windows feature glass that is specially treated to save energy. Look for windows that have the capability to let in natural light, yet protect your floor coverings, furnishings, and walls from harmful ultra-violet rays. These innovative glass configurations help keep the heat out in the summer and keep the heat in during the winter. Low-E coatings and gas fill are the features give this latest generation windows such fantastic performance.

Low maintenance replacement windows

Look for replacement windows that are low maintenance or maintenance free. The overwhelming choice for almost 70% of American homes is PVC and Vinyl windows. Not only can you count on them being low maintenance, but they also are highly recyclable, which is no small consideration. Vinyl windows come in a variety of colors as well as wood grain prints to save you from painting (another reason they are low maintenance). Cleaning is so easy; there are models that all you have to do is tilt the windows to clean them from the inside.

It is wise to buy windows that are sold and installed by reputable contractors. This will give you added warranty protection as the installer has the confidence of the window manufacturer. The installer will also be completely familiar with the handling and installation of the product line.
