Match windows to climate.
If your home is exposed to high winds and cold temperatures, look for windows that are known for performing well at low-temperature and are wind resistance.
Frame provides structure.
Cladding protects the exterior of a wood or composite window and is made of vinyl, aluminum, or fiberglass, eliminating painting.
Sash – is the moving part of the window; it can be tilted in for easy cleaning.
Insulated Glass – Double-glazed windows have a sealed space between two panes of glass filled with air or another gas that insulates better than air. Argon gas is standard on many windows, but the energy savings won’t justify paying extra for it.
Low-E Coating – is transparent and improves the efficiency of the glass by reflecting heat yet letting light in. The coating is applied to the outside of glass in warmer climates to reflect the sun’s heat out; in colder areas, it’s applied to the inside glass to keep heat in.
Grilles – are decorative and are available in different patterns to match architectural styles.
What energy-efficient window numbers mean.
You’ll see these numbers on Energy Star and National Fenestration Rating Council window labels:
U-factor, or U-value – usually ranges from 0.20 to 1.20. The lower the number, the better the window is at keeping heat in.
Solar heat gain coefficient – is between 0 and 1. The lower the number, the better the window is at blocking unwanted heat from the sun. In warm climates, you’ll want the lowest number you can find; in cold areas a higher number is better.
Visible transmittance – indicates how much visible light a window lets in and is between 0 and 1. As the number increases, so does the light.

There are many different types of replacement windows to choose from.
They allow natural light and fresh air into a room. Windows also help define the style of your house whether it is traditional, modern or somewhere in between. So, there’s no reason to settle for something boring when there are so many options available to change the look and feel of any room in your home.
8 types of windows:
Double Hung – Has two sashes that slide vertically up and down in the frame. They can open wide from either the top or the bottom, but they remain inside the frame so they don’t protrude out to the exterior or interior of the house.
Casement – Hinged windows that operate by the turn of a crank in an operating mechanism. They can be hinged on the left or the right to open outward.
Awning – Hinged at the top, awning windows open outward to let in air from the left or right and the bottom. They can be installed above, below or alongside a stationary or operating window.
Picture – There are fixed and non-operational. They are designed to increase light and viewing area.
Transom – A narrow window that can be either operating to let in air or non-operating and mounted above a door or window to let in more light.
Bay or Bow – Bays or bows give you more interior space, as they protrude out from the exterior of the house. They are a combination of windows often with a stationary window in the middle flanked by either double-hung windows or casements.
Slider – Glide along a track and have at least one operating window that slides horizontally over or past the other window.
Stationary – These do not open, but can be customized in nearly any shape you desire. They are often used in conjunction with operating windows.
