New Windows for your Tucson Home

When it comes to new windows for your Tucson home, how exactly do you get a return on your investment? It’s not like a new automobile. At least you can drive that and show it off! With new windows, it’s all about the choices you make concerning materials, style, glazing, and installation. All four can have a big impact on your home’s appearance and more importantly, its energy bill. And some features, like how easy they are to take care of, make windows more appealing for other reasons.

For example, different window frame materials can affect the appearance, durability, and insulation of your window. Wood-framed windows provide good insulation, but are heavy and high-maintenance. Vinyl-frame windows, on the other hand, insulate well and don’t need painting.

Olander’s Window Replacement is here to lend you a hand and ensure that you choose the right window that will compliment your home and your budget.

A Worthwhile Investment
New windows are just that: an investment. New windows for your Tucson home offer a host of benefits, such as smooth operation, low maintenance, fewer drafts, easy cleaning and modest energy savings. But these benefits come at a price so evaluate the repair and maintenance options for your old windows before taking the plunge on new ones.
In fact, you would do well to consider the structural aspects of installing new or replacement windows.

U-Factor – The U-Factor is simply the inverse of the R-Value (1/R) and zero is the theoretical best, allowing no heat through. A window with a U-Rating of 0.35 is equivalent to an R-Value of 2.86.
Shading Coefficient (SC) – The shading coefficient compares the solar heat gain through a window to a single sheet of 1/8″ glass. In hot climates, a lower SC will block more of the sun’s heat, but in colder climates, a higher SC is desired to let in more heat.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) – The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient takes into account the heat absorbed by the glass and is approximately 87% of the shading coefficient.
Air Leakage – Air leakage ratings tell how much air passes through any gaps in the window assembly in cubic feet per square foot of window.

All’s Well That is Installed Well

Obviously, there are additional reasons to justify your window replacement Tucson, AZ. Replacing windows, especially if the old ones are falling apart, can add value to your home if you are planning on selling in the near future. And new windows increase the lifespan of your home.
