Windows are a prime focus of almost every home, yet often they are forgotten about. They’re thought of as a pane of glass that gives you a view of the outdoors. Windows, though, have as much to do with the aesthetics of your home as the paint or front door. They’re one of the first things people notice when they walk by a house. When your windows are ready to be replaced, do you know what kind of window to replace them with?
Following are five things to keep in mind when choosing a replacement window style to enhance your home…
1) Choose a Window That Belongs on Your Home
Whether you live in a ranch-style house, a mid-century, a Tudor-style house, or a bungalow there’s a style of window that will enhance its beauty. If you’re lucky to live in a house that was preserved properly, your replacement window might be an upgrade to what is existing. If your home is like so many, that have been updated without the home’s character in mind, then the window style you choose might bring it back to the way it is supposed to look.
2) Which Room Will the Window Be In
Which room a window is in, it’s exposure to the sun, whether it faces the front yard or the backyard are all things to keep in mind when choosing replacement windows. For example, you might want a big bay window in the kitchen to make it as sunny and homey as possible, but in the formal dining room that faces toward the west and boasts views of the sunset you might want something that accentuates like an the view such as a casement window.
3) Always Consider Function
Is the window a primary fire escape? Is it in the basement? Is it used as ventilation in a bathroom? Is it on the second floor and would be more of a danger if it is opened than closed? Windows in different rooms do serve different functions. Some don’t need to be opened while others need to be able to let in a breeze. It’s important to consider what the window will be used for other than letting light in when deciding on your replacement window.
4) Consider Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency is an important consideration because it will have a direct impact on your utility bills. Since some homeowners rely heavily on air conditioning, the most energy efficient windows will have a lower solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC). That means that the windows are more capable of blocking heat from the sun. On the same note, the windows will also keep the cold air where it belongs in the winter time and help to reduce your heating bill.
