Energy-Efficient Windows

If you need to replace your home’s old windows, you probably have a number of questions on your mind. What are the most durable windows? What are the most energy-efficient windows? More and more homeowners today value energy efficiency, and it’s an important question to focus on when you’re in the market for replacement windows.

Fortunately, modern windows by default are more energy-efficient than windows installed even 10 years ago. But what styles are the most energy-efficient?

What Are the Most Energy-Efficient Windows?

When it comes to the style, picture, or fixed-pane, windows (like bay windows) are among the most energy-efficient. These windows don’t open and close and, therefore, don’t allow any air to leak in or out. Casement and awning windows are also some of the most energy-efficient styles due to the tight seal created between the sash and the frame.

Also keep in mind the other factors that can impact the energy efficiency of a window. The material is a major one. Certain materials have higher thermal efficiency than others. Vinyl windows are extremely energy-efficient.

Other factors that determine how energy-efficient a window is include:

  • Type of glass: Many windows today come with low-E glass—or have it as an option. This type of glass has coatings that help keep heat inside your home during the winter and outside in the summer.
  • Panes: Two panes of glass are better insulators and can also help with impact resistance and sound control. Many windows also have gas (usually either argon or krypton) between the panes, which increases their ability to stop heat transfer.
  • Spacers: A window’s spacer keeps the panes the correct distance apart. Non-metallic spacers help reduce heat transfer by insulating the edges of the panes.

One good thing to look out for is the blue ENERGY STAR® label. ENERGY STAR qualified windows are energy-efficient and high-quality. Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie installs vinyl windows (in various styles) from American Window and Great Lakes Window, which have earned the ENERGY STAR label.
