Double Hung Windows
Double hung windows are named as such because both the lower and upper panes can open for ventilation. They are one of the most common window types and many tilt inward, making it easy for homeowners to clean the exterior window.
Bay or Bow Windows
Bay and bow windows are typically a conglomeration of 3 or more windows that project out from your home. They accentuate the view by dividing it into 3 window panes. They also bring in more light and make the room appear larger. The panes that comprise a bay or bow windows can even be constructed from other window types, such as casement or single hung windows.
Casement windows are hinged on one end and can be swung outward to provide ventilation. Casement windows are very energy-efficient compared to sliding windows, because they seal tightly when closed. They can open left to right or vertically, depending on the opening.
Picture windows are large windows that offer a wide, picture-like view onto the world. A picture window may offer a single pane of glass, or it may be broken down into several panes. They are fixed and are designed to let in plenty of light.
Awning windows tilt out from the bottom. When open, the window itself forms an awning, protecting the opening from rain.
Windows are often the first feature that people notice about your home, but they do more than improve the look of it. They are your viewport upon the world and help to keep your home cool in the summer & warm in the winter.
Your windows may also be a source of energy loss in your home. The average home may lose up to 30% of its heating and cooling energy through leaky windows and doors. Northeast Home & Energy specializes in the sales and installation of Low-E glass replacement windows – the best option for reducing energy loss in your home.
Energy may escape through a window’s frame or glass. The frame may be made of wood, aluminum, or composite material. Glass has a greater surface area, resulting in a greater source of energy loss and highlighting the need for more energy-efficient windows. Low-E is coated with a thin layer of metal-oxide film. The Low-E glass coating reduces the amount of ultraviolet (UV) light, infrared light, and heat that escapes from your home without reducing the amount of light entering. This helps to keep the temperature inside your home consistent, reducing your heating and cooling bills.
Hard Low-E coating – This coating is applied during the manufacturing process, producing a more durable or hard bond.
Soft Low-E coating – This coating is applied to pre-cut glass. Soft coat glass is more energy-efficient but more delicate than hard Low-E glass.
Energy Star Windows
All Energy Star windows come with a label providing an energy performance rating from the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). In addition, the label states the u-value (resistance to heat flow), solar heat gain coefficient (amount of solar radiation emitted), and visible transmittance (transmission of visible light).
In addition to Low-E glass, argon-filled glass can make your home more energy-efficient. Argon is a non-toxic, odorless gas sealed between the panes of glass. This provides a layer of insulation, further increasing energy efficiency.
However, installing energy efficient windows need to be done professionally to prevent air and water from leaking around the window frame. The window specialists at Northeast Home & Energy can ensure that your window installation is done correctly to provide years of trouble-free service.
