REPLACEMENT FRENCH DOORS DENVER 

More than Just an Inclusion to Your Home’s Architectural Design

Tired of the heat already?  Your window plays a huge role in the volume of heat that gains entry into your home, or that is lost, at any point in time. This is why it is important that you are aware of the enormous consequences of having poor quality windows installed in your home. Not only do they serve as a major source of unwanted heat gain (in the summer months) or heat loss (in the winter months), they also require you to spend extra (unbudgeted money, sometimes) to have the Air Conditioning system running overtime, to keep your home temperature cool.

As a matter of fact, with our Infinity from Marvin Replacement window, there is technology that makes it possible for you to have super energy-efficient windows with low-E coatings, thus helping to reduce the typical solar heat gain, without compromising the design, view or the amount of daylight that comes in.

 

Here Are Just Some of The Amazing Benefits of Having Energy Efficient Windows:

Improves Energy and Cost Savings

The beauty of having these energy-efficient windows properly selected and installed is that they can significantly help to improve window performance in your home as well as help minimize unnecessary heating, cooling and lighting costs. More so, these windows have special coatings that can save you the additional cost of having to frequently replace your bleached-out fabrics, floors, art and other materials in your home that are directly exposed to the sun’s harmful rays.

Reduces Your Carbon Footprint

Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows are eco-friendly and are great at helping you to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions. This is so because the power that you save would have been spent creating greenhouse gases. Helping to eliminate this excess power usage, therefore, is a great way to conserve energy, and ultimately reduce your overall carbon footprint.

Enhances Your Home’s Thermal Equilibrium

Energy efficient windows characteristically have a great thermal resistance by virtue of the Low E coatings on the glass. The more reason why your home will not get heated up by exposure to direct sunlight. You can always be rest assured that your home’s thermal interior can be maintained at comfortable levels away from the scorching Colorado sun. With summer here, it’s time to stay cool.

In the Southwest, air conditioning units need to run nonstop in order to keep houses cool and comfortable. Under such conditions, the right kind of glass can make a big difference. A case study conducted in Roseville, California, proved that Cardinal’s LoĒ² glass maintains comfortable homes while saving energy.

Two identical houses were compared. One was equipped with clear double pane and another using LoĒ² glass. The results concluded that the house equipped with LoĒ² glass showed a 25% reduction in cooling energy and 10% savings in heating energy. Also, the air conditioning unit used ran 1/3 fewer hours compared to the one used in the test house using regular low-e glass.

 

Improved Lighting and View

New fiberglass windows with low-E coatings, serve as the perfect replacement solution to the traditional tinted glazing or shades on your windows to reduce solar radiation. These energy efficient windows are great at protecting your home from unwanted heat without obstructing your views or the amount of daylight that penetrates your home interiors.

Costs for Energy-Efficient Options

Replacement windows with Low E coatings have now become a standard feature of many new home builds and window replacements. On the average, the cost of having these windows installed cannot be said to be expensive, particularly when you consider the enormous costs that are incurred when you don’t. These are, however, some features that will increase the value of your window.

CAUTION!

You do not want to get caught up in a situation where you have purchased windows according to the U-factor of the glass and have ignored the material of the window frame itself. This is why it is important that you always keep in mind that the U-factor of any energy efficient window could refer to the energy efficiency of the glass alone or the entire window. In many cases, however, the frames are not usually as energy efficient as the glass.  This is why we prefer fiberglass for the window frame.

Which replacement window is best for you?

When researching which replacement window is best for you, many factors lead up to making that final decision. After attending my first home show, I realized that remodeling projects are much more detailed and time consuming. Gravina’s Window Center recently had a booth at the Colorado Garden and Home Show. We were one of hundreds of vendors who participated in the show. That’s a TON of home improvement companies, all with a wide range of products, all competing for your business.

So how do you decide which product is best for you? Well, I don’t know about landscaping, countertops or jacuzzi spas, but I do know a little something about windows. So here’s my two cents…

First and foremost, you have to define your problem. There’s a reason why you’re shopping for replacement windows. Are the existing windows showing condensation? Are they letting cold, drafty air inside your house? What is the issue you are having? Asking yourself these questions will ultimately make the process a lot easier.

Next, pick the materials you would like your replacement windows to be made of. Gravina’s Window Center primarily sells Infinity by Marvin fiberglass windows. We also sell vinyl, aluminum, and wood replacement windows but truly believe fiberglass windows are the best. (See our previous posts to find out exactly why!) It all depends on what you are looking for though. For example, some people prefer to put less expensive windows in their basement. We’ve had many customers buy fiberglass replacement windows for their entire house and then choose to do vinyl in the basement. If you are unaware of which material is best for your project, our sales staff would be more than happy to help you.

Finally, pick the details! That’s the fun part! There are a million different style options out there. You can choose to go with a replacement window that looks exactly like your existing unit. On the other hand, you can completely revamp your room/house/wall and go with a different look by adding grilles or choosing obscured glass. Gravina’s Window Center also can enlarge an existing opening to put a larger window in its place. If you really want to enhance the look of your room, bay or bow windows can definitely add a new sense of style.

There are so many different options out there. Take a look at them and have fun with it!
