Windows play an important part of a home’s exterior, providing daylight, ventilation and energy efficiency.
Polar Bear Exterior Solutions, a trusted window and siding contractor, shares three features to look for in windows.
Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Connection
Windows are one of the only upgrades that impact the look of your home both inside and outside. Blended indoor-outdoor spaces, in fact, utilize the right combination of windows and patio doors to create a seamless transition between the two areas. This makes the house feel bigger than it actually is, allowing for free, unrestricted movement, which many with large families or those who like to host parties find attractive.
Comfort and Energy Efficiency
Windows play a big role in keeping homes comfortable and energy efficient. Insulated window units, in fact, minimize heat transfer, keeping your indoor temperatures consistent during both summer and winter. They have features that include double or triple-paned glass with special low-emissivity (low-E) coatings, and an inert gas blend that enhances thermal performance. Every window and siding contractor also notes that these windows help homeowners achieve energy savings. With a lower rate of heat transfer through your windows, the HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to keep the indoors comfortable.
Durability and Low-Maintenance Qualities
You can enhance your home if you invest in new windows that not only withstand the local climate but are also easy to use and have low-maintenance requirements. Framing materials with such attractive features can provide years of reliable service. Seeing as replacement windows don’t need much upkeep, you won’t have to waste time, money and effort on the kind of maintenance that comes with old, inefficient windows.
