Though your current windows may have performed well for you in the past, there will come a time when you need to replace them. Once you hit the showroom floor at Wallside Windows, Michigan’s leading replacement window specialists, you’ll wonder why you didn’t get your windows replaced sooner. Here are a few important features to look for in quality replacement windows:
- Low-E Glass: As with many home fixtures, advances in technology have greatly benefited windows. Low-E glass, for example, uses a special coating that keeps in thermal energy during the winter and blocks out unwanted solar energy during the summer, saving you a substantial sum on energy every year. The special Low-E coating also reduces the amount of ultraviolet light that filters through, protecting your furniture from fading in the sunlight.
- Argon Gas: Though it may seem strange to have gas in your windows, argon gas is an inert, naturally occurring gas that can be an enormous benefit to your home. The argon molecules allow for better thermal performance in your home, improving your window’s energy efficiency by several percentage points. In conjunction with Low-E glass, argon gas insulation could save you a lot of money on heating and cooling.
- Intercept Spacers: Since temperatures change drastically throughout the year, you want a window that can easily adapt. Intercept spacers, which expand and contract with the changes in temperature, ensure your windows perform their best year-round. If you get new windows with Intercept spacers, you could improve your energy efficiency by yet another 5%.
