What to Look For in a New Window

When considering a new window for your home, create a list of beneficial features. The perfect set can improve your home’s comfort, energy efficiency and curb appeal. That said, here are some considerations before buying new replacement windows, according to a renowned window company.


Most homeowners have a defined budget for their new windows, so the cost will always be a factor. Compare the prices of different models and base your decision on the value they offer. Also, consider the price of having custom or standard-sized windows – most custom-sized windows need a higher investment but offer the best value.

Energy Efficiency Ratings

Consider having windows with excellent energy efficiency. Look for ENERGY STAR® windows and products with a U-factor rating of 0.30 or lower for maximum energy efficiency. For instance, Renewal by Andersen’s Low-E4® windows has optimal insulation and UV protection for your interiors.

Maintenance Requirements

All windows need types of maintenance. For instance, wood windows will need staining or painting every few years to protect them from the elements. On the other hand, vinyl or aluminum frames are durable and require less attention.

Aesthetic Preference

Aesthetics matter when choosing windows. Think about the window set’s available style and compatibility with your home’s existing architecture. That said, window companies are highly knowledgeable in styling and installing your windows, so ask them to help you choose the most suitable windows from the many options available.
