Types of Windows Available in the Market:
Choosing the right windows for your home or business is essential, as they play a significant role in regulating indoor temperature, enhancing natural light, and ensuring the security and privacy of your space. At High Quality Contracting, Inc., we offer a diverse range of window options to meet your specific requirements:
1. Double-Hung Windows:
These classic and versatile windows feature two vertically sliding sashes, allowing for easy ventilation and cleaning. They are an ideal choice for traditional and colonial-style homes.
2. Casement Windows:
Casement windows are hinged on one side and swing outward to open. They offer unobstructed views and excellent ventilation, perfect for modern and contemporary designs.
3. Sliding Windows:
Sliding windows have one fixed sash and another that slides horizontally. They are a practical option for spaces with limited vertical clearance and work well in modern, ranch-style homes.
4. Awning Windows:
Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward. They are excellent for providing ventilation even during light rain, making them suitable for bathrooms and kitchens.
5. Picture Windows:
Picture windows do not open and are designed to frame scenic views and let in abundant natural light. They are commonly used in living rooms and areas with picturesque surroundings.
6. Bay and Bow Windows:
Bay windows consist of three panels that extend outward from the wall, while bow windows have four or more panels, creating a curved appearance. Both options add dimension and charm to any room.
Energy Efficiency in Windows:
At High Quality Contracting, Inc., we recognize the significance of energy-efficient windows in reducing utility bills, conserving energy, and minimizing environmental impact. Our commitment to sustainability and energy conservation drives us to offer top-of-the-line energy-efficient windows.
1. ENERGY STAR® Performance Ratings:
As an ENERGY STAR® partner, we are dedicated to providing windows that meet or exceed the stringent energy performance criteria set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ENERGY STAR® is a symbol of energy efficiency and is a reliable guide for consumers seeking eco-friendly solutions.
The U-factor measures a window’s ability to prevent heat from escaping a building. Lower U-factor ratings indicate better insulation and reduced heat loss, which is especially crucial during colder months.
3. Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC):
The SHGC measures how well a window can block the transfer of solar heat into a building. Lower SHGC ratings are desirable in warm climates as they help keep interiors cooler and reduce air conditioning usage.
4. Visible Transmittance (VT):
VT measures the amount of visible light transmitted through the window. Higher VT ratings mean more natural light indoors, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day.
5. Air Leakage:
This rating quantifies air passing through a window’s joints. Lower air leakage ratings indicate better sealing and reduced energy wastage.
6. Condensation Resistance:
Condensation resistance measures a window’s ability to resist condensation forming on the interior surface. Higher ratings imply a reduced risk of mold and mildew growth.
