PALM BEACH ENERGY EFFICIENT WINDOWS
Palm Beach energy efficient windows are great for keeping your energy bills lower and will offer more protection for your Florida home and belongings. Energy efficient windows protect furnishings, flooring, and other assets in your home, keeping them in good condition.
Hot and sunny weather is a part of life here in Florida, which means the sun provides us with plenty of warm air in our homes. When our windows don’t provide sufficient protection from all the heat, our energy costs are higher and our indoor assets aren’t protected from the sun’s rays which make them fade and dry out.
Glazing or window tinting can always help with protection from too much sunlight and is a great add on feature for new windows. Energy efficient window installation will do the most to keep your home cooler.
If you are constructing a new home or needing some remodeling, you should seriously consider installing new windows, especially in light of new technologies with windows that make them more energy efficient than ever before.
If your home has very old or inefficient windows, it is likely that replacing them rather than repairing them will be the best option for you. Repairs can always be made up to a certain point, then it becomes more cost effective to replace the windows.
When new windows are properly selected and installed, you can minimize heating, lighting, and cooling costs. There are several common window types you may have or may want installed.
Fixed or Picture Windows (not made to open)
Double Hung Windows (slide vertically)
Casement Windows(push out via a hinge and crank)
Sliding Windows (slide horizontally)
Arched or Elliptical Windows
When it’s time to choose your energy efficient windows, you will soon find out that your options are wide open. One of the first things you can consider is the energy performance rating as it pertains to the climate in our area, as well as your home’s design. This is helpful in narrowing down your selection.
How your windows operate (see bullet list above) is important in how energy efficient they are. Ar leakage rates can be lower or higher depending on how they open and close because the sealing is varied.
For instance, a casement window with hinges on the sides will have lower air leakage rates than sliding windows because the sash closes by pressing and locking against a frame. However, the number of panes and any additional modern technology applied can also matter.
This may sound a bit confusing if you’re trying to figure out what style or type of window is best for your home, which is why many homeowners end up choosing the standard window replacement, but it doesn’t have to be complicated when you have a professional energy efficient window replacement expert on your side.
