Replacing your windows by selecting newer, more efficient models not only updates a home without costly structural changes, but increases the overall value and appearance of your home.

Getting started

durango-glass-homeFinding energy-efficient windows has become easier, as insulating features such as heat-reflecting low-E coatings and argon gas between panes have become more standard. You’ll also find new options and extras, including fiberglass window frames.

“Stop throwing money out your old windows,” some commercials say. With heating costs on the rise, many homeowners are wondering whether it’s time to replace their aging, drafty windows with efficient, tight-fitting ones.

Understanding efficiency ratings

durango-milgard-windowsThe manufacturer is going to mark any replacement window with a U-factor. The U-factor is a measure of how well this window is able to conduct heat. The opposite of the U-factor is the R-value, the R-value tells you how well insulated these windows are. If you want to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter, you want a higher R-value and a low U-factor.

Many of the manufacturers do not list the R-value on their product, because it might not seem as impressive. Some of the best windows on the market may have an R-value of 2 or 3. To give you an idea, that is equivalent to an uninsulated wall.

This tells you how much of the external sunlight that directly hits the window will make it into your home as heat. Especially if you live in a colder area, you want the highest number possible. The external sunlight might help you save some money on heating your home, even if it is freezing outside. To know how much visible light a window lets in, you want to know the visible transmittance. Again, the higher that number, the better.
