Energy efficient windows are a key issue for both new and older homes. Here are a few guidelines to help in your selection of windows that will help keep your home comfortable all year long while also limiting monthly utility bills:

*Consider windows that have multiple panes of glass divided by argon gas filling and edge spacers with well-constructed frames.
*Look for windows that have “Low-E” coating on the glass. Low-E reflects heat and UV rays back into the house.
*Casement or awning windows are typically the most efficient variety because they seal firmly against the weather stripping along the frame than standard double-hung windows.
*The best quality weather stripping on most any type of window has a compressible gasket that functions similar to a car door. The weather stripping in combination with a good quality window latch will serve to block out cold air and moisture while keeping warm air inside.
