The Best Features of High-Quality Windows

When looking for high quality windows, it’s important to know the market. For instance, what you’re looking for, what deals are out there and what are the highest rated windows. It’s important to work with a professional who can help you choose the best window options for your home. At American Window Systems Inc., we’ve been in the window industry for 50 years and can help you pick the perfect window for your home. Not only do we have experience helping out customers like you, but we also can help guide you through the process by showing you the best features to look for.

One of the biggest features to look for when it comes to high quality windows is energy efficiency. It’s important to know the benefits of energy efficient windows and how they can not only save your home money but also protect your home from outside elements. Energy efficient windows can save your home an average of 15% annually in energy bills. This may not seem like a lot right now, but any product that can help save you and your family money is a great product. Energy efficient windows also pay for themselves over time. That 15% you’re saving on your energy bills can be put back into your home, and ultimately your new and high-quality energy windows will pay for themselves.

Other features to look for in high-quality windows are frames. While this may not seem like a big deal to some homeowners, frame material is an important sign of how well your window will last. While there’s no specific lifespan when it comes to windows, the most popular windows among homeowners are aluminum, vinyl and wood windows. These windows tend to be more affordable, are great when it comes to insulating, and are energy efficient.

Glass is another important thing to take into consideration when shopping for windows. The best types of windows come with double or triple glazing. These types of windows have a sealed space in between them filled with air and gas. The gas in the window provide for better insulating, while triple glazed windows not only have this extra layer, but also an additional layer to help block out loud outside noises.

A window with a low-E coating is also a great feature to have when you purchase windows. Though this coating is transparent, it improves window efficiency allowing light in, yet reflecting heat. For warmer climates, like Vallejo, California, this coating is applied to the outside of the glass, yet on the inside of the glass in colder climates.

While it’s important to hire trained professionals when it comes to installing your windows, it’s always good to know what features to look for in high-quality windows yourself. The more knowledgeable you are about windows, the better equipped you’ll be to purchase a new window.
