Glass Windows - Important Points

When choosing new glass windows, appearance is often the first consideration. However, there are a number of additional considerations which are equally important.

Additional considerations include cost, alternate style, material and texture options, and energy and noise reduction efficiency. Cost is related to both appearance, durability and energy efficiency. Energy efficiency in windows is an important concern.

Windows are weak points in house construction where a great amount of energy can be lost. Attention should be paid to ensuring that the loss of energy is minimized.

Window Energy Efficiency

Windows can gain and lose heat through air leakage, conduction, convection and radiation.
