Types of Windows
Which one is best for you?
Bay Windows are generally comprised of three or more windows. A unique look is achieved by projecting the side units out from the exterior in 30, 45 or 90-degree angles. For your replacement bay windows, you can select from individual windows to remain stationary or operating. You may even choose to make your center window stationary and the two side units operating as double hung or casements.
Awning Windows feature a top hinge and open outwards. Your replacement awning windows will generally provide for lesser rates of air leakage. The reason? The sash closes by pressing against the window frame. Note that screens are placed on the interior of the window frame. They are used for ventilation and/or to allow light to enter and can be placed below or above a door.
Casement Windows are based on a side hinge design. The benefits of replacement casement windows include: Lower air leakage rates, a sash that closes by pressing to the frame, and screens that are placed on the interior. Additionally, because casement windows project outward, the home is afforded better ventilation than sliders of similar size.
Double Hung Windows feature the ability to slide each sash vertically. You are able to control the level of ventilation from a small opening to one half of the total glass dimension. Additionally, with double hung replacement windows, you have the option of placing a screen on the exterior of the window frame. Single Hung windows differ slightly. This style window allows only the bottom sash to slide.
Fixed Frame Windows are the most basic of styles. This term typically alludes to windows that are inoperable and non-venting.
Sliding Windows allow homeowners to slide both sashes horizontally, while single-sliding windows only provide for movement of one sash. Benefits are similar to that of double/single hung windows: ventilation area can be manipulated, and screens can be placed on the exterior of the unit.
Types of Glass
Now that you know your window options, you will need to consider the various types of glass that are available. There are several different grades, and you will want to make the best decision based on your energy efficiency goals. This section has been designed to help you do just that!
Clear glass is the preferred material for home window panes. But with newer techniques such as glazing or cutting, as well as custom fitting, consumers now have the ability to ‘customize’ the appearance of their windows. Additional enhancements include glazing options that help control heat loss and condensation.
Low-E glass features an unique surface coating that reduces the heat transfer back through the window. In fact, such a coating can reflect anywhere from 60% of the normally transmitted heat without inhibiting the amount of light that passes through the window.
Double Glass with 1 pane of Low-E coating, 1 pane of clear glass, 1 U-Shaped Spacer and 1 Argon gas-filled air space.
Triple Glass with 2 panes of Low-E coating, 1 pane of clear glass, 2 U-Shaped Spacer and 2 Argon gas-filled air spaces.
