The Importance of Energy-Saving Replacement Windows

Energy Saving Windows
 
Energy saving replacement windows conserve your finances and reduce the overall demand on energy resources. Standard windows in general, generate costs, and these costs accumulate each month. What may seem like a nominal sum today can add up to a significant amount in no time. According to House Logic, window replacement projects produce a $12,000 return on value. House Logic also cites the “Remodeling Impact Report,” a study that found an 80% financial return on project cost in estimated home value. Some of the features of an energy saving replacement window include; the Low – E factor, which is one of the most important reasons to purchase replacement windows. It is a reflective coating that blocks out harmful UV rays, keeping the heat out during the summer and inside the home during the winter; Gas Fills, like Argon, for example, add to the strength and effect of insulation and boosts the energy rating; and Spacers, assist the insulation effect and also prevents condensation in the glass.

8 Types of Windows to Consider for Your Home

Living Room With Bay Window
 
Windows are functional and aesthetically pleasing. There are many shapes and styles to choose from. Consider the room you are designing and the ways you intend to use it. Carefully imagine each room in the style you want to convey. Your ideal window style is determined by your preference and the room you are designing. Below are different types of windows you may want to consider.

  • Stationary windows are ideal if you prefer very large, picture windows that do not open. They are the best for admitting lots of natural light into the room and to maximize your view of the outside.
  • Slider windows slide to either to the right or left in the sash of the frame. They remain flush with the panel and do not extend outward or into the home when opened.
  • Single hung windows are opened by sliding the bottom panel upward. The top window does not slide and remains stationary.
  • Double hung windows are a very popular. This window can be opened either by sliding the top down or sliding the bottom up.
  • Transom windows are smaller windows placed above doors or other windows. Ordinarily, transom windows are positioned high to allow extra light to enter the room. Window coverings are not often needed. Transoms come in many different shapes such as elliptical, half round, triangle or eyebrow to add character to a room. Most transom windows are stationary, but they may be made to open if you prefer.
  • Bay windows add a popular design element to your decor. They create the feeling of greater living space by expanding outward. Bay windows are placed in dining areas to accommodate a kitchen table or in a bedroom to create a cozy area for sitting. They come in double hung, single hung, stationary, or casement window types.
  • Casement windows are opened by turning a crank handle. The crank may be turned in either direction to open outwards.
  • Awning windows are hinged at the top and open from the bottom outwards. Most are a louvered style, which can add a cottage-style charm to a room.
