Your Windows and Your Home
The windows in your home serve several important purposes. Your home windows help keep conditioned air inside, and outside air out. They also let light into your home. Both of these functions can have a big impact on your home’s electric bill and performance on energy audits. In addition, windows also affect the appearance of your home and can even be considered part of your decor. If you’re looking for an update to your home’s appearance, or a window has broken and you need it replaced right away, look no further.
Types of Windows
Because windows serve such an important purpose in your home, there are many different types. Homeowners will appreciate this when choosing the perfect window for a new home, or updating their current windows. Below is a sample of the most popular types of windows we install, including but not limited to:
Single hung windows are simple, functional windows that work well in any home. In a single hung window, the bottom window panel, or window sash, can move up or down while the upper sash remains stationary.
Double hung windows are similar to single hung windows. The difference between the two is that both the upper and lower sashes of double hung windows can move up and down. This allows a little more flexibility in appearance and function.
Bay windows are those installed in frames attached to a protruding section of your home’s exterior. These windows can give you a little extra interior space. They can also be used to create attractive window seats or cozy reading nooks.
Casement windows are ones that open out, generally to the side, and sometimes up. Since the full window sash can be opened outside, these are popular for anyone that likes a nice breeze or an unobstructed view.
Picture windows are another great option if you value a clear, unobstructed view out onto your lawn or backyard. These windows are fixed in place and do not open, nor do they have a frame that you can see.
Sliding windows, sometimes called “gliding windows,” easily allow in fresh air and they help save space. As the name implies, this type of window has one window sash slide past another horizontally to fully open to the outside.
Similar to casement windows, awning windows consist of a sash that opens outward on a hinge. What makes these windows unique is that they open upward, giving them the appearance of an awning and allowing for ventilation even while blocking light rain.
Arched windows are just what they sound like: windows with an arched top piece. These shaped glass windows give an elegant appearance to any room and let in an ample amount of light. The majority of arched windows do not open.
Types of Window Glass
In addition to the different types of window systems available, there is also a variety of glass types that can go in those windows. Not every type of glass is a good fit for every window frame, but it’s still a good idea to check out your options when choosing new or replacement windows. Below are a few common types of glass you might see in local windows:
Float glass is a popular type of glass used in windows. This type of glass is so named because of the process used to make it, which involves heated glass being shaped into panels. Float glass is clear and colorless.
Obscured glass lets in light but isn’t easy to see through. For example, frosted glass is a type of obscured glass. This type of window glass is good for maintaining privacy in your home while still letting in plenty of light.
Insulated glass is created using two glass panes with argon between them. This is one of the more energy efficient types of window glass. The insulation allows less transference of your conditioned indoor air temperature to the outside.
Low-E glass, or low emissivity glass, is given a special coating that lets light through but reflects infrared rays. Like insulated glass, this type of glass can be used to make your home more energy efficient
