Older windows are often the culprit for escaping heat in the winter, especially if they’re warped, damaged or not sealed properly. With newer, energy efficient windows, you can reap the benefits of having lots of windows in your home without experiencing that significant energy loss. QualiGlass Windows & Doors in Edmonton shares some factors to consider when purchasing new windows for your home:

Material

New windows can be made of PVC, wood, aluminum clad wood, aluminum and fiberglass. There are a number of things to consider when it comes to choosing the best window material for your home. Let the experienced staff at QualiGlass Windows explain the options and help you make the right choice for your building project.

Operating Style

One of the most important things to consider when buying new windows is choosing an operating style. You can choose from Picture/ Fixed Sash, Slider, Single Hung, Double Hung, Casement, Awning and the European Tilt & Turn.  QualiGlass manufactures all of these styles and can even make them in a variety of different combinations to ensure your new windows function how you want them to and compliment your home’s design.

Colour

Choosing the exterior and interior finish of your new windows is an important part of the process when buying new or replacement windows. Vinyl windows that are manufactured with uPCV come in two basic colours; white and wicker. More colour and finish options are available with co-extruded PVC, painting and interior and exterior foils.  Learn more about choosing window frame colours.

Energy Efficiency

This is probably one of the most important factors to consider when purchasing your new windows. Improving your energy efficiency will keep you home warm in the winter, cooler in the summer and improve the overall comfort of your living spaces. It will also help you save money on your utility bills!

The glass is obviously the most important part of a window when it comes to energy efficiency. Today window glass is available in dual or triple pane with a variety of Low e coatings and tints. Let us help design the perfect window with the right glass choice for your home.
