  • Basic Considerations for Purchasing Energy Efficient Windows

    Energy-efficient windows can save you hundreds of dollars a year, and add thousands of dollars to the value of your home. But there’s a lot more to windows than appearance and ENERGY STAR certification. To ensure you find the right energy-efficient windows for your home, read on to learn about different window materials, glazing options, and ratings available to you.

    Return on Investment
    Window replacement  is actually one of the best home remodeling projects for investment return. According to  Remodeling Magazine , you can expect to add thousands of dollars to the value of your home by installing high-quality vinyl windows.

    Tax Credits
    If you purchase windows with a U-factor and solar heat gain coefficient rated at 0.3 or less, you may be able to qualify for a federal tax credit. Check with your window installer to see if the state of Florida is also offering tax incentives for the purchase of energy-efficient windows.

    Energy Efficiency Ratings
    According to the Efficient Windows Collaborative, you can save roughly $126 to $465 a year by replacing single-pane windows in a 2,000-square-foot house with windows that are eligible for a federal tax credit. Ask your window company to give you an overview of the measures by which windows are evaluated for energy efficiency.

    Frame Materials
    Vinyl windows are low-maintenance and offer excellent insulation. Wood looks wonderful, but it needs regular maintenance and is sensitive to changes in moisture and temperature. Aluminum is lightweight and durable, but conducts heat very rapidly, so it isn’t very energy efficient.

    Glazing
    This is the type of glass in the window. The number of glazing layers does not necessarily mean a window is energy efficient. To be energy efficient, a window must also come with various glazing coatings, which affect insulation and heat transfer.

  • Top Things to Consider Before Replacing Your Windows

    Investing in replacement windows can substantially improve the look and value of your home. In addition to appearance, it’s important to consider the efficiency, lifespan, warranty, and installation method for your new windows. Read this article to learn more about what you should consider before replacing your windows.

    Lifespan
    Quality  vinyl windows  can last for decades. Even if you aren’t planning on living in your current home for long, installing vinyl windows will increase the value of your home. According to a recent report by  Remodeling Magazine , vinyl windows will recoup roughly 71 percent of the initial investment.

    Efficiency
    In addition to saving you money on your energy bill, buying energy-efficient windows may also qualify you for a tax credit. When you look closely at the label on a new window, you’ll see a number of energy-efficiency figures. A lower number for the U-factor tells you the window is well-insulated, and a lower figure for the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) tells you that the window transfers less solar heat. A higher Visible Transmittance (VT) means the window lets more light through. A lower Air Leakage (AL) value tells you there is less air leakage. A higher Condensation Resistance means the window is good at resisting water build-up.

    Warranty
    Take a close look at the warranty that comes with your replacement windows to see if it covers glass breakage, broken seals, and air leaks. Find out if the warranty offers recourse if the company goes out of business, and if the warranty is transferrable.

    Installation
    A professional installation is necessary for ensuring the best insulation, durability, and lifespan of your windows. It’s especially important to find the right window installer if you invest in high-quality windows; otherwise, you could be wasting your money.
