Replacing your windows? Here’s what you need to know!

February 28, 2014

Sometimes repairing your windows isn’t an option. Some homeowners need to replace windows regardless of efficiency, either for aesthetics or because of extensive damage. If you’re going to be in your home for many years, Reliance First Capital suggests you may simply want the convenience and beauty of updated window features.

Reliance First Capital brings you some important factors to consider when choosing replacement windows:ID-100133341

Energy efficiency In the long-run, energy efficient windows are worth the initial cost. Not only will they reduce your overall energy costs, but you’ll also be doing your part to help the environment.

Glazing — Double-glazed windows consist of an inner and outer layer of glass, and triple-glazed windows include three layers of glass. The small gaps between the individual glass panes are filled with a gas (typically argon or krypton), providing an insulated layer to reduce heat loss.

Coatings — Windows come with a variety of glazes, films, tints, and remittance coatings. To block the radiant energy striking a window, reflective films are effective. The downside of reflective films is that they also reduce the amount of light allowed in. Tinted glazing reflects radiant energy without reducing natural light.

Frame material — Window frames come in a variety of materials. Wood, aluminum, and uninsulated vinyl are less efficient than fiberglass.

When it is time to repair or replace your windows, take the time to educate yourself so that you find the right options for your budget and your needs.
