Read the label Do your Home work

There are many great online resources for reviews and comparisons of many window companies. After reviewing this information make sure you do your homework as well. You want to make sure the windows you choose have credible endorsements. For instance energy star labels indicate the window has met energy efficiency criteria.

Learn the Language for Energy Efficiency

Along with the Energy Star Label it’s important to know the other language related to energy efficiency. U- Factor measures the rate of heat transfer and tells you how well the window insulates. Solar Heat Gain Coefficient measures the fraction of solar energy transmitted and tells you how well the product blocks heat caused by sunlight. Condensation Resistance measures how well the window resists water build-up.


Is the company reputable and what recourse do you have if they go out of business? Does the warranty cover air leaks and broken seals and if so, for how long? Does the warranty cover labor and glass breakage? Is the warranty transferable to the next homeowner? These are great questions to ask before purchasing new windows.

Consider design and price

Now that you know the company and brand,Use an online tool to explore style and color options. Make sure that everything you want comes in a price you can afford.


Windows should last a long time. That is why you should buy quality windows. Look for  double ventilation locks and fusion-welded sash and frame. This can help you determine if the windows are durable.

In the end purchasing new windows can really enhance your home. But it is more than style and look. You want to make sure you have purchased a quality product with a great warranty that will perform.
