Factors to Consider Before Replacing Your Windows

Factors to Consider Before Replacing Your Windows

March 20, 2017

Replacement windows provide a number of benefits, including improved energy efficiency and curb appeal. If you are considering investing in new windows, be sure to do your homework to ensure that you are getting the best value for your investment. Huff ‘N Puff, the premier window company in the area, suggests considering these factors before choosing replacement windows. 

Replacing Your Windows

Windows’ Energy Efficiency

High-quality windows can improve your home’s comfort while reducing the burden on your HVAC system. That said, different windows have varying energy-efficient levels. A window’s energy efficiency is based on several factors. The solar heat gain coefficient measures how well the window keeps heat out, with a lower number indicating less solar heat transmitted. Visible transmittance shows how much natural lighting is let in. Meanwhile, condensation resistance represents the window’s ability to prevent condensation.

Your Home’s Architectural Style and Landscaping

The way the light and heat enters your home is an important factor to consider when choosing new windows. For example, if you don’t have trees to block the sun and have floor-to-ceiling windows on one side of your home, energy-efficient units can significantly help you.

Huff ‘N Puff offers Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows in Albany. They feature High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass that provides excellent energy efficiency and protection. They are available in a wide range of styles, colors, and finishes to suit your home’s architectural style.

Window Frame Materials

Different materials function and age differently. Renewal by Andersen windows are built with their patented Fibrex® material. This provides superior durability, allowing your windows to have narrower sash and frames, maximizing glass space. Fibrex also has excellent insulating properties. Combined with High-Performance Low-E4 glass, it can keep your home’s comfort levels high, while requiring minimal maintenance from you.
