3 Things to Consider Before Buying New Windows, Orchard Park, New York

Replacing your windows when they are worn out can prevent wasting money on energy costs as well as keeping your family safe and staving off damage to the interior of your home. It may be time to think about replacing your windows if they are more than 15 years old. The professionals at Modern Window of New York sheds some light on what you should consider before buying replacement windows for your home.

3 Things to Consider When Buying New Windows

Window Frame Material

windowsThe type of window frame you select has a bigger effect on your home than just aesthetic. Efficiency, durability, and cost are three major things to consider when selecting a window frame. For example, although aluminum frames are inexpensive, they have a low energy efficiency and are not very durable. On the other hand, a more expensive frame such as wood is highly efficient and beautiful, but difficult to maintain.

Energy Efficiency

While most windows may look the same, the type of material and fill of paned windows has an effect on their efficiency. Each with different performance levels, Energy Star windows are rated by a variety of features such as how well the window keeps heat out, how much sunlight the window allows in, the amount of air leakage there is in each window, and the ability the window has to resist water condensation. Your window installer can help you choose the most energy-efficient windows for your home to save energy and money.

Professional Installation

Properly installing your windows is crucial in ensuring the longevity and performance of your windows. Spending money on purchasing new windows and not having them installed correctly hurts the investment that you just made by subjecting them to problems with durability and efficiency. Make sure that you’re protecting your investment by hiring professionals, who have experience and know what they’re doing, to install your new windows and frames.
