Which Replacement Windows Are Most Energy-Efficient?
When you’re evaluating replacement window options for your home, it’s important to assess their energy efficiency. The more energy-efficient your windows are, the more comfortable your home will be and the more money you can ultimately save on monthly bills.
What Makes a Window Energy-Efficient?
A window’s energy efficiency refers to its ability to reduce your home’s energy usage by preventing heat transfer into and out of your home. The overall key to reducing energy usage is high insulation.
Finding the Most Energy-Efficient Windows
Vinyl windows are a low-maintenance, cost-effective window option that boasts a number of energy-efficient features. Specifically engineered to prevent heat transfer, vinyl replacement windows usually come with insulated glass that can often be tailored to the climate of your specific region. That will help keep the warm air in during the winter and stop the cool air from escaping during the summer. By helping your home maintain a more consistent interior temperature, vinyl windows can reduce the amount of work needed from your HVAC system, which is where you can save money monthly.
Frey Construction’s Energy-Efficient Windows
Frey Construction’s premium Aeris windows from Provia are an excellent option for your home, as they feature both the energy efficiency of vinyl windows and the appealing look of wood windows. How? Well, the exterior of the Aeris design is vinyl, while the interior is hardwood. The vinyl exterior provides good insulation and keeps the window maintenance-free. The wooden interior has a beautiful look that can be stained or painted to match the interior of your home. Frey Construction also installs Endure windows from Provia, which have the same energy-efficient features as the Aeris style, but without the wooden interior. All of our replacement windows include foam-filled sashes for added insulation, triple-paned glass to reduce heat transfer, and a comprehensive warranty to protect your investment.
