Energy-efficient windows reduce energy consumption by limiting indoor heat transfer. They also limit outdoor noise pollution, making homes more livable and cost-efficient.
They contain insulating materials between the glass panes. They can be double-pane or triple-pane and filled with argon or krypton gas for superior insulation.
They meet the ENERGY STAR certification standard, indicating that they offer better energy efficiency and insulation than the average window. This means you can save on electricity costs from day one.
With the help of a window sash that presses against the frame on closing, casement windows are among the most energy-efficient operating window styles available today. They also form an impenetrable seal that prevents air entry and leakage to boost efficiency.
When opened, they offer ample ventilation, allowing for top-to-bottom fresh air to enter your home. In addition, the wide opening allows you to swing them open and catch side breezes that blow along the walls of your house. That’s something other window types cannot do. You can further improve their performance by opting for low-e glass.
Designed to match any modern homeowner’s design sensibilities, these windows allow homeowners to control their ventilation needs without compromising privacy or view space. Their multi-point lock provides a tight seal that helps reduce energy losses. They’re also a great alternative to picture windows and can be easily combined with other window setups.
They’re operated by a crank handle mechanism and open outward to create an awning effect. They can be opened in almost all weather conditions and offer superior ventilation capabilities. However, they can’t be used as an escape route in case of emergency.
Sliding windows, alternatively referred to as sliding-glass windows or sliders, are a popular window choice because they flood a room with natural light and provide easy ventilation. These windows also have an aesthetic simple design and are budget-friendly. Besides, modern sliding windows have features that improve energy efficiency. For instance, insulated frames prevent air infiltration, which lowers your energy bills.
Unlike double-hung windows, sliding windows open horizontally, which makes them easier to open for ventilation. This is especially useful for people with mobility issues or elderly persons. Moreover, they are an effective barrier against road dust and unconditioned air, as well as unwanted noises such as rain tapping on window panes or dogs barking outside.
With the heat of summer causing your HVAC system to strain and your wallet to drain, limiting energy transfer can make a significant difference. Fortunately, ENERGY STAR-compliant windows in Florida can help control rising home temperatures and bring cooling costs back down to Earth.
A1 entry doors feature Low-E glass, a special coating that reduces solar radiation and re-radiates it into the house, saving you money on your heating bill during cold months. Additionally, a double-pane window infused with Argon gas provides superior insulation and limits air leakage.
A1 entry doors also offer sidelites and transom windows to fill the home with natural light while adding visual appeal. A1 offers retrofit window installation that uses the same frame and sash as your existing door, or full-frame window replacement for a seamless overhaul.
Bay windows allow abundant natural light to flood your living space and enhance your home’s architecture. Whether you want to create a cozy rainy-day reading nook or a breakfast alcove, this popular window style is an ideal solution for most rooms.
A bay window consists of several windows that angle out from your home’s exterior. These windows offer panoramic views and ample seating space. They are available in a wide range of sizes and styles, and can be customized with various features like standing seam cladding and quality insulated seat boards.
Retrofit window installation
Over time, older windows lose their insulation properties and result in higher heating costs in the winter and cooling bills in the summer. Statewide Windows & Doors can help you save money and improve your home’s energy efficiency with retrofit windows.
A retrofit window installs directly into the existing frame without removing exterior stucco or interior drywall. This method is less expensive than full-frame window replacement and offers the same aesthetics as new construction windows.
Before the installation, make sure you clear the area around the windows and remove any furniture that blocks access. Also, prepare for any debris that will be left behind.
Full-frame window replacement
Full-frame window replacement involves replacing the entire frame and sash of your existing windows, a more comprehensive installation method that offers several energy-saving advantages. This method is the preferred choice when a home’s current frame is damaged, warped, or rotting.
Full-framed replacement windows create a tight seal and prevent air infiltration, which helps reduce heating costs during colder winter weather. The insulated frames also help keep cool air in during summer.
New window materials, such as composite and fiberglass, are more energy efficient than older wood frames. They’re also less likely to warp or rot, resulting in fewer drafts and leaks over time.
