Top Features to Look For When Replacing Windows

American Dreamspace With today's high-performance window technology, you can have a proven solution to resist the sun's heat in the summer, and welcome it in the winter! There are energy-efficient windows on the market that are engineered to accommodate almost any budget, while providing the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings, making them well suited for virtually any climate. These high-performance

windows are 'Green' because they use technology that helps lower your energy use. Lowering your energy use reduces air pollution, such as CO2, that is emitted from power plants, thereby making a greener environment for everyone.

'Green' Frame Materials
Cross section of a double hung vinyl replacement windows PVC (vinyl) frame materials can be considered 'green' because they are recyclable and have a sustainable lifespan, keeping them out of landfills. Today's vinyl production is not petroleum-based. PVC production does not require burning or generate harmful gases. Once they are installed in your home, vinyl windows are environmentally friendly due to their maintenance-free composition; they never require painting, sanding or refinishing.
Look for vinyl windows that are custom-made to fit the exact openings in your home, and ones that employ fusion-welded construction. Fusion welding prevents air leakage, water infiltration, and energy loss that are common with other frame materials on the market that are mechanically (screwed) or chemically (glued) fastened. Fusion welding also provides the best structural integrity.

Low-E Coatings
Peak Performance Glass

When replacing windows, look for double pane or triple pane windows. Just upgrading your single pane windows to double pane can improve the R-value, or insulating value by 200%. But, the greatest thermal improvement comes with the addition of low-emissivity coatings, insulating gases, and warm-edge technology.
