When your windows start to look dated, chances are they are the cause of your higher energy bills. As much as you’ve enjoyed your old windows, nothing lasts forever, and you might want to consider replacement windows before things get worse. Before you move forward, you will probably start to form questions. These are some of the common questions window professionals hear along with answers that can get you pointed in the right direction.
Will Replacement Windows Really Save Money?
One of the biggest selling points of replacement windows is the fact that they can save you quite a bit of money over the months after their installation. Of course, windows are a significant investment, but you will see a significant savings on your energy bills once they go in. That savings doesn’t go anywhere and keeps paying you back month to month. Plus, your home remains more comfortable because you aren’t losing air out the windows and you are using less energy at the same time.
Which Frame Material Is Best?
That question is hard to answer because everyone has their preferences. Part of it depends on your goals and your budget. However, the most popular window frame material on the market right now is vinyl. This material is energy efficient and cost-effective. It’s hard to believe, but the replacement windows made out of vinyl cost less than any other material, and yet they provide the same (if not better) energy efficiency. Add that to their lack of maintenance and you can see why they’re so popular.
What Is a Low-E Coating?
There are a lot of new technologies on windows today and if you’re new to the market, you’ll want to check them all out. One of the biggest items on the new side is the low-E coating. These thin layers of metal coating go on the glass panes, but you can’t really see it so it doesn’t block your view. The coating is very useful, though, because it blocks UV rays from getting into your home. That means no more fading furniture, flooring, and other household items. It also means a reduction in the amount of heat that comes into your home from the sun, which increases your energy efficiency and comfort.
