Energy Efficient Custom Windows For Your Home

Improve the efficiency of your home by installing energy-efficient windows. These energy-saving options help minimize heat loss while protecting valuables from UV rays – and can also contribute to reduced power bills!

Consider hiring a company with an established track record when choosing a window installer. Make sure they offer high-quality products and provide long-term satisfaction guarantees to guarantee a stress-free installation process.

Double-Hung Windows

Double-hung windows feature two movable sashes, providing increased ventilation. They’re especially beneficial in multi-story homes which need additional airflow on upper levels.

Double hung windows can also be more energy efficient than single-hung windows due to their thicker frames and sashes, with reinforced narrow silhouette frames featuring internal chambers to reduce solar heat gain and minimize interior glare in summer months while meeting ENERGY STAR(r) requirements with their low U-factors and visible transmittance (VT) ratings.

Installers of licensed windows can offer you a wide range of replacement windows that suit your style, budget and climate needs. However, keep in mind that their quality may depend on the materials used during construction and material costs may affect its durability.

Single-Hung Windows

Single-hung windows are an inexpensive and straightforward solution that are widespread throughout residential communities across America. Used both new homes as well as older ones to maintain authenticity, these affordable models feature fixed upper sashes that restrict airflow making them less suitable for spaces requiring ventilation.

A good window installation company will use products with manufacturer’s warranties to give their clients peace of mind, as well as providing Energy Star ratings to help lower utility bills and save money on utility expenses. In order to further save, look for windows with Low-E coating which reflect infrared radiation and limit solar heat gain for even greater savings.

Casement Windows

Casement windows allow for an expansive panorama of your landscape and sky with ease, thanks to their hinged design that opens outward via crank handle operation. Since these windows open outward, more fresh air and sunlight enter than other window styles do.

Opt for energy-efficient windows with low U-factors and high visible transmittance (VT) ratings for maximum comfort. Argon gas between glass panes can further insulate, making these windows suitable for installation as standalone units or built into bay or bow windows to add style and function to your home – or they can serve as emergency egress windows in basement areas.

Sliding Windows

Sliding windows are popular choices when homeowners want to bring in natural light or take in uninterrupted views from outside their home. Operating horizontally instead of vertically, sliding windows tend to be cheaper than double-hung models.

Sliding windows also require less maintenance than double-hung ones, as they open from one side for easier cleaning than those featuring multiple sashes that open and close back and forth.

Add modern style with rectangular sliding windows or depth to a rec room by choosing an elliptical or circular one. Triangle windows add movement while parallelogram ones can make an impressionful statement in loft spaces or above stairs.

Insert or Pocket Windows

Lexington area weather can be unforgiving, requiring windows that can withstand its unpredictable climate. Look for energy saving windows certified as ENERGY STAR compliant with low U-factors and high Visible Transmittance ratings to maintain cooler summer temps while warming your home up during the winter season, all while increasing daylight in living spaces.

Energy efficient replacement windows help lower energy costs by keeping heat and cold air inside your home, relieving stress on HVAC systems, and helping lower utility bills. If possible, ask your window installation company about options containing denser than air argon gas to enhance insulation properties – these units may even qualify you for federal tax credits!

Retrofit Windows

Installation of energy-efficient replacement windows can cut your utility costs by 7-15 percent while making your home quieter and more comfortable. Look for models certified as Energy Star compliant that have low U-factors and high Visible Transmittance ratings (VT).

Reputable window installation companies can help you choose the most appropriate materials for your new windows. Fiberglass and vinyl frames tend to be more durable and low maintenance compared to aluminum ones; choose one based on aesthetic preferences, climate conditions and energy efficiency needs.
