What is the Best Vinyl Replacement Window on the Market

A single pane of glass used to be the only option for windows, but not anymore. Double pane windows have become very popular in new construction and as replacement windows over the years, due to their energy efficient properties and other advantages, such as sound reduction. Double pane windows are very good insulators, keeping warm air in and cold air out. What makes them such effective insulators? Part of the answer lies not in the glass itself, but in the space in between the two panes.

The space between the two panes in a double pane window is usually about half an inch wide, and is typically filled with argon or another inert gas. These gases are nontoxic, nonreactive, clear, and odorless. Argon is also inexpensive, making it a common choice for this purpose.

Inert gasses are heavier and denser than air, so their molecules do not move as easily. Having inert gasses between the panes of glass makes it more difficult for the warmer inside air to pass through the glass to the colder outside. This helps keep warm air from escaping during the cold winter months, saving on heating costs.

With lower heat loss, the window's R-Value, which measures its resistance to heat flow, is increased. A higher R-Value means a more energy-efficient window. A single pane glazed window generally has an R-Value of about 0.85, and a double pane glazed window without an argon fill may have an R-Value between 1.5 and 2.0. A double pane glazed window with an argon gas fill is considerably more energy efficient, as seen by its higher R-Value, between 2.7 and 3.6.

Alside Window Reviews: Given the Best Vinyl Window Review

For those who have older drafty windows or for those who simply want to give their home a facelift, a vinyl window replacement may be in order. Replacement windows come in a variety of styles from simple double hung windows to a casement window or to a garden or planter window. Window styles need not stay the same when one makes a switch. Perhaps an older home with single hung windows would look more up to date with double hungs in every room and a planter window over the kitchen sink.

Not only can one change the look of a home's windows by choosing a new, more up to date, or even a more classic style vinyl window replacement, but one can also chose to have some windows tinted or to even have frosted or colored glass installed when choosing a new vinyl window replacement. This is especially nice in rooms like a bath where one wants light, but wants a more private feel. Windows with colorful panes are also popular in entryways. Occasionally smaller windows that surround a larger clear window will be a colorful pattern which makes a unique accent and can be a singular and even stunning, original look for one's home.

Also, one can choose a vinyl window replacement with a new trim color to change the overall color scheme on a houses exterior. Perhaps one has a white home and would love a deep forest green trim around his or her windows, or a lighter brown home that would be quite gorgeous with a dark chocolate-colored trim around the windows. There are so many possible colors and color combinations, one can even find companies that will do customized colors around their vinyl window replacement.

One of the nicest features about vinyl windows is that they require little maintenance. Unlike wood, there is no chance for warping or for pest infestation such as carpenter ants or termites. Also, these windows will not need to be painted ever. The vinyl will hold its color for the life of the window. One will occasionally want to consider washing the vinyl, but this is not a difficult job and is far less costly or time-consuming than painting and keeping a check for wood rot and pests could ever be. Nowadays, most vinyl windows tilt in and with a simple flip of a lever or push of a button one can have access to the exterior of any window and with a quick wipe the window is clean and looks as good as new.

If 10-15 years ago you heard some bad things about vinyl windows, forget about that. In old days vinyl really did have some problems, mostly with thermal expansion. In extremely hot or cold days the frame could contract or expand making your window impossible to open or close. Sometimes it could even lead to cracking the glass. However, these problems are the thing of the past, modern vinyl windows are resistant to high and cold temperatures, very durable and keep new like appearance for ages.
