Tips to Help You Choose the Right Windows for Your Iowa HomeMay 09, 2013
On winter days when cold, blustery winds blow through Iowa, you may notice that your current windows aren’t performing the way they should. Whether your windows are old or just lack the technology that makes quality windows so efficient, we at Waddle Exteriors want to help you select the best windows for your home. Follow these tips to choose the best replacement window options for your needs.
- Research the primary window technologies available to increase energy efficiency, such as Low-E glass, gas-filled frames and frame construction. Determine which features are most important to you.
- Evaluate ENERGY STAR® ratings. ENERGY STAR-qualified windows offer enhanced performance to keep your heating and cooling bills lower and provide an increased level of comfort. Because Iowa is located within the Northern Climate Zone, this rating is especially important for window buyers.
- Determine which material you would like your windows to be constructed from. For minimal maintenance and greater longevity, we recommend high-quality vinyl windows.
- Pinpoint your window style. The windows you choose should complement or enhance the architectural style of your home. Decide whether you are interested in double-hung windows, or more unique styles such as casement, awning, garden, picture, bay/bow and specialty windows.
