Energy efficiency is a top priority for homeowners today, which is why homebuyers are willing to spend more for properties with new windows. Modern, energy-efficient windows let you regulate regulate inside temperature by insulating your home from the outdoor temperature. A strong seal will reduce the need to run heating and cooling systems, significantly lowering your monthly energy bills and eventually letting the window installation to pay for itself over time.

What Are Energy-Efficient Windows?

All homeowners in Lockhart, Texas should be interested in improving their energy efficiency. The advantages include increasing your home’s value, lowering your monthly energy consumption, reducing stress and wear on your HVAC system, and bettering your family’s comfort. With a window installation company like Zen Windows in Lockhart, Texas, you’ll also be get to beautify your home with our many energy-efficient windows designs.

A few basic factors make a window energy efficient: the kind of window (single-hung, double-hung, etc.), the material it’s made of, and the glass. It’s also necessary to have a qualified window installation company handle putting them into your home, as a secure fit is required to create a proper seal. Zen Windows in Lockhart, Texas lets you customize your windows with various kinds of glass for the energy efficiency to meet with your home’s needs:

  • Double-pane glass provides double the insulation of traditional single-pane windows. A gap is created between double-pane windows that increase energy efficiency.
  • Triple-pane glass goes one step further than double-page windows. With two pockets of air, heat loss is reduced exponentially between the outside and interior of your home. With triple-pane windows, you’ll see significant differences in hot or colder months.
  • Krypton or argon gas in-fill can be pumped into the air pockets between double-pane or triple-pane glass. The thickness of these gasses reduces heat loss better than just air.
  • Low-E glass coatings are an excellent feature for improving the energy efficiency of your windows and gaining the greatest value from your installation. Specialized coatings on Low-E glass block harsh sun rays and heat, keeping your interior spaces cooler without depending heavily on your HVAC system. It's also effective the other way around depending on how you apply the coating, so your home stays warm by preventing the heat from escaping.
  • Warm-edge spacers on energy-efficient windows are used instead of metal in the frames. Metal loses heat too much to be energy efficient.
  • Double-strength glass has a thickness of 3.2 mm compared to the standard 2.5 mm. Thicker glass is not much more expensive and provides better insulation and strength.

Window Materials And Designs

The most common materials used to build windows today include:

  • Wood
  • Vinyl
  • Aluminum
  • Fiberglass

Vinyl has become a popular choice over the years to take hold of nearly an equal share of the market as wood-frame windows. Zen Windows in Lockhart, Texas suggests homeowners install new windows made with vinyl because they are superior to wood and aluminum in terms of energy efficiency and a much better value overall.

Vinyl windows have exceptional durability and a lifespan similar to wood, which last 15-20 years or more. Unlike wood, vinyl will not warp, contract, or decay as much from the weather. The durability and minimal upkeep of vinyl improves its energy efficiency. While vinyl will not last as long as aluminum (30+ years), aluminum loses heat easily and has poor energy efficiency. Only fiberglass will perform better than vinyl windows, but not by enough to justify its inflated price tag (typically 30%+ more expensive).

Another factor to think about is the design of the windows. Zen Windows in Lockhart, Texas has a wide range of window styles to choose from, including:

  • Awning
  • Single Hung
  • Double Hung
  • Picture/Shape
  • Bow/Bay
  • Slider
  • Casement

Varying styles will offer attractive aesthetics to your home. Each functions differently to suit your needs and will give varying degrees of energy efficiency. For example, casement windows swing open like a door, offering the most ventilation to air out a room much faster than single-hung models.
