3 Key Features of a Well-Designed Window

While selecting windows for your home is largely a personal choice, there are a few unwritten rules that ensure that you get the most out of them. Sure, any window can provide natural light and ventilation, but a great window does so much more than that. Aside from letting in air and light, a window can also add a lot of character to your house. If you are in the market for replacement windows, here are three key characteristics that you should consider.

Well-Designed Window

1. A High-Quality Build

You know you’ve got the right window when it feels solid in your hand. Windows should feel durable and not shaky. Remember, your windows should be able to withstand anything Mother Nature decides to throw their way, so make sure that you purchase yours from a reputable manufacturer.

2. Energy Efficiency

According to studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy, up to 30% of your home’s heating and cooling costs can be attributed to inefficient or outdated windows. Read the labels on the window carefully and make it a point to purchase ones with a high energy-efficiency rating.

3. Aesthetics

To some homeowners, this is the most important factor. Your replacement windows should not only look good on their own but also complement the rest of your home both inside and out. Think about your home’s architectural style and try to match your windows accordingly. Sleek, streamlined windows such as sliding and picture windows work well with contemporary homes, while more classic choices such as casement windows will look great on more traditional architecture.
