Energy conscious homeowners are always looking for ways to make their homes more efficient and lower energy bills. If their windows are more than 15 years old, new windows can make a big difference in the interior comfort levels of the home. Home Exterior Systems has recently announced that it proudly offers replacement windows that have advanced features homeowners enjoy.
Over the centuries, windows have gone through steady improvements. Storm windows were added to single-pane glass to block drafts, and that eventually gave way to double-pane windows. Manufacturers now use special coatings and gas between the panes to make the windows even more efficient. Argon gas provides better insulation against temperature changes, and the LoE glass reduces ultraviolet infiltration to make the home more energy efficient.
The glass used in windows has also grown thicker and stronger over time. This makes it less likely to break when there is a storm or if a stray ball hits the pane. The use of double-strength glass also makes it more difficult for intruders to break the glass to enter the home. Homeowners can also choose to invest in StormBreaker Plus laminated glass that can withstand direct strikes and even reduce ambient noise that travels through the glass.
The best glass in the world still needs a strong frame. Home Exterior Windows use triple-stepped, sloped sills that guide water away from windows and help prevent leaks. The frames are solid and built to withstand high winds and years of regular use. The dual cam locks provide greater protection from intruders.
Replacing screens is a tedious chore most people would rather avoid, and they won’t have to worry about it when they invest in quality windows from Home Exterior Systems. The fiberglass is stronger and more durable than traditional mesh. It still allows a breeze to come through, but it’s resistant to creases and wrinkles. It lasts longer, is easier to clean and helps the windows stay attractive for years to come. Dual vent latches allow the windows to be opened partially for better air control.
When homeowners are ready to invest in new windows, they should take a closer look at the options available from Home Exterior Systems. The new advanced window options are stronger, more durable and more energy efficient than standard options available at the home improvement stores.
