Selecting the best window for your home is a tough task to do during a home renovation. To pick the best one, there are several things to consider. You can buy a classic window that will beautify your house. There are also windows that are easy to install. However, if you want something that is energy-efficient, then choose ENERGY STAR® windows.
If you’ve shopped around for replacement windows long enough, you’ve probably started hearing about low-emissivity (Low-E) glass. This type of glass is coated with super-thin layers of metallic oxide, which are practically invisible to the naked eye. Today, Stittsville Windows and Doors talks about the benefits of using Low-E glass for your wood or vinyl window replacement project.
Whether you’re getting new wood or vinyl window replacement, it’s important to keep the warranty of your new hardware in mind. Most homeowners don’t bother checking on this, thinking that it’s an unimportant part of the buying and installation process – unaware of how important the warranty is in the long-run.
In today’s day and age, picking windows based on looks is no longer a good way to get the most value out of your money. Instead, you have to focus more on getting the most energy-efficient windows you can find. This is why we came up with a quick guide to help you tell which windows are more energy-efficient than the rest.
