So you’ve started your search for replacement windows for your home here in the Minneapolis metro.  Good for you!  Your decision to ditch those old energy-wasting windows for modern ones that can improve the look of your home while cutting your utility bills is a wise one.

Now the next step is to decide what kind of windows you want.

There are several frame material options to choose from, but if you’re looking for great windows at an economical price, we often recommend premium vinyl windows.

Vinyl windows are a popular window type, and many of our customers choose to have them installed in their homes. They come in many different colors and styles, provide the homeowner with 30 years of protection and are inexpensive to purchase and have installed. Their cost effectiveness is what makes them so attractive to homeowners looking to replace their windows.

Features of Energy Efficient Vinyl Windows

Vinyl windows are one of the most energy-efficient options you can go with. There are also additions that can be made to the windows to make them more efficient overall.

  • Low E Glass – This blocks the UV ray lights that are streaming in through the windows which can cause damage to the surrounding areas.
  • Triple-Pane Glass – This protects the inside of the home when you have three layers of protective glass that keeps the outside weather out but maintains the comfortable inside temperature. Triple pane windows may be a good solution for northern exposure walls that get wintry cold blasts.
  • Argon Gas Insertion – The the space between the glass panes is filled with this gas, which helps to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the home by not letting the hot or cold air out or in.

Check for the Energy Star label that can be found on the outside of the windows. This shows that the windows are certified for saving more money on your energy bills.

Styles for Windows

Vinyl windows come in a number of styles, so everyone is able to mix and match inside their home. It does not matter what the size of the space you’re filling is, there is usually a vinyl window that matches. Some of the vinyl window options include, but are not limited to:

  • Venting
  • Bow
  • Bay
  • Casement
  • Double-Hung
  • Specialty
  • Sliding

While switching out what you currently have is ideal for those quick fixes and upgrade, some homeowners opt to change the type of window completely. Either can be done with the use of any vinyl window and a professional  replacement window installation company.
