It starts with selecting the material – aluminum, wood, or vinyl. Aluminum windows are the least popular because they generally require the most upkeep. From painting to continuously improving the insulation, aluminum remains our least favorite style for energy efficiency. Wood windows are a great insulator and add a classic aesthetic look to your home. However, wood easily absorbs water, so you may find yourself reapplying caulk to keep the moisture out of your home. Vinyl windows are the best for aesthetic appearance, insulation and altogether great energy performance. When selecting the right windows for you, consider these three questions:
- Do I mind spending time each year fixing up windows or insulation?
- For what aesthetic style am I striving?
- Is this window going to perform the way I intend?
