When shopping for windows, it helps to be aware of the options available to you. Vinyl windows, with their high level of durability and easy care, are also energy efficient, available in a wide variety of colors, and highly affordable. Wood windows offer a natural beauty that can’t be matched by synthetic approximations. Wood also offers excellent insulation properties, but the high expense and ongoing care of wood windows may steer many buyers towards less expensive, low maintenance window types. A great alternative to wood windows is wood-clad windows, which give the beauty of wood with the benefits of vinyl or aluminum underneath. Aluminum windows are very popular as well, because they are highly affordable, extremely durable, and offer a slightly more upscale look than vinyl. Another option is fiberglass windows, which offers many of the benefits of other types of wood and includes exceptional energy efficiency.

Modern windows use high performance insulated glass that can help you reduce your annual energy bills. Whether it’s keeping the cold winter air out or cool air conditioned air in, new windows can help.

The Benefits of Replacement Windows

windowInvesting in replacement windows isn’t just about improving the look of your home exterior. In fact, new windows provide many more benefits than just that.

Energy Efficiency

According to the EPA (The United States Environmental Protection Agency), the average home can save anywhere from $126 – $465 per year by replacing their inefficient single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. Typically these savings are gained by installing double-pane windows with low-e glass.

If you’re unfamiliar with the term low-e, this should help: Low-e stands for low-emissivity, and low-e windows are windows where the panes have been coated with a thin coating of material that makes them more energy efficient. Windows with low-e coating reflect more heat away from the surface of the glass, making them more efficient at keeping heat inside in the winter and cool air inside in the summer.

Cost-effectiveness and Safety

When it comes to energy efficient windows, multi-pane windows with low-e coating are the cream of the crop. In fact, they are the most cost-effective way to increase the efficiency of your windows. And that’s not all, they can also help reduce the amount of dangerous UV radiation that enters your home, protecting people and your furnishings.

Property Values

Studies have shown that the two most important factors that shoppers consider when they’re looking at homes are energy efficiency and exterior maintenance. New homeowners simply don’t want to buy a home that needs a lot of exterior maintenance, which old windows do. Replacement windows are low-maintenance and energy efficient, which gives them added curb appeal and value with most shoppers, even more than things like location and proximity to schools and parks.
