Windows are essential to a home’s beauty, function and feel. Old, outdated or damaged windows can lead to high energy bills and a drafty home.
Local window installation experts can help you pick the right windows for your needs and home style. They can also install specialty or custom windows.
Argon Gas-Filled Windows
Argon-filled windows prevent the heat from escaping during the summer and reduces your energy bill. They also help prevent condensation and frost buildup. They are a great choice for any climate and work well with any window design.
The inert gas argon is pumped between the panes of double or triple-paned windows. This makes them more efficient than air-filled windows. This is a big advantage for homeowners in areas with extreme weather conditions where moisture can leak between the windows and damage the seals.
Another advantage of argon windows is that it doesn’t expand and contract like the air, so it won’t cause gaps to develop over time. Although argon costs slightly more than air, you will recoup your expenses within a few months in reduced energy bills.
Upgrading your window glass surfaces is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to improve energy efficiency in your home. This is because low-e windows prevent incident solar radiation while controlling thermal energy.
This helps your home stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It also reduces the wear and tear on your heating and cooling systems.
We offer hard and soft coat Low E options for insulated double glazing. Soft-coated Low E does not have the haze effect that is sometimes seen in hard-coat versions under certain daylight conditions. It also holds up well to cleaning, unlike DIY window films that are easily scratched and become less effective over time. It also blocks harmful UV rays that can cause damage to your furniture and fabrics.
Single Sliding Windows
Single slider windows (also known as horizontal sliding windows) offer a cost-efficient way to bring natural light and views into your home. Unlike other window styles, they don’t require additional framing to open and close, as they have one fixed section with a sliding panel on either side.
They are easy to clean and take up less space than a casement window, making them ideal for cramped spaces or homes with young children. Additionally, because the sashes can be opened, they allow for maximum ventilation and airflow.
They also come in different frame options, so you can customize your new windows to match your interior design. However, they may need re-application of weather stripping more often than other window types. This is due to their frequent opening and closing.
Bay & Bow Windows
Whether used as a breakfast nook or a focal point, bay and bow windows add depth to your home. They consist of several window panels in a curved shape and are often used to frame an outdoor view. They also allow more sunlight into your home.
They are usually more expensive than standard window types because they require a larger frame and more architectural work. However, they can increase your home’s resale value and are a great way to bring natural light into your living room or kitchen.
You can choose from double or triple-pane windows that include a space filled with Krypton or Argon gas for increased insulation. This helps you save energy while reducing your heating and cooling costs. This is a great investment for any homeowner.
Energy efficient windows help you save money on your heating and cooling bills while keeping your home more comfortable. They use a special coating called low-emissivity to block infrared and ultraviolet rays while letting regular light pass through. Many also have tints, reflective coatings and gas fills between window panes that further help to cut down on heating costs.
ENERGY STAR-certified windows provide better insulation and can reduce your heating and cooling costs by up to 12%. Heated air escapes through poorly insulated windows, requiring your heater to run longer and more frequently. Energy-efficient windows prevent this heat transfer by reducing air leakage.
Whether you’re building a new home or replacing old windows, a professional window installer can help you choose the right energy-efficient windows for your needs and lifestyle.
