Consider Your Needsmodern-exterior1-glassblogpost6

Your journey to installing stunning windows begins with assessing your home’s needs. First, consider your top priorities:

  1. Does appearance top your list?
  2. Are you looking to invest now and save on cooling and heating costs for years to come?
  3. Is noise reduction your chief concern? 

Remember to also factor in your home’s climate zone, sun exposure, and window size and placement to make a well-informed choice that will enhance your home for years to come. With guidance from our professionals, learn how to give your windows a boost in energy efficiency by following a few simple steps at home. Planning a larger project or a completely new look?

Understand Your Options

Getting familiar with basic window lingo can help you navigate your buying options with ease and confidence. To keep your home cool during the summer months, consider Low E glass — complete with a heat-reflectant metal oxide that’s applied to the surface of these windows. For another heat-stopping choice, argon and krypton are dense gases that, when injected between the panes, create an insulated layer that blocks ultraviolet rays and slows the transfer of heat through the window. Remember that gas-infused glass can be sensitive to altitude and requires continuous testing for durability and safety! Attached to every new window you’ll find the NFRC sticker, which indicates how your window will perform when it comes to energy efficiency.
