When you’re in the market for replacement windows for your home, you’re going to have to choose which to prioritize – the aesthetics of the window or their functionality. In reality, though, the rule to follow is functional aesthetics since windows are both decorative and static set pieces. Renewal by Andersen® of New Mexico explains why functional aesthetics matter.
Form and Function Together
Form doesn’t necessarily have to follow functionality since for windows, these two go hand in hand. The performance of the windows actually depends on their style. Some windows, for example, are more airtight and energy-efficient due to their design and style construction. Before you pick a window style though, consider the design of your house first.
The Best Window Design for All Homes?
Whether your house is a contemporary or traditionally designed home, double hung windows remain the top choice. We always recommend these since their style blends well with both architectural styles and they’re functional, too. Double hung windows rank high in energy efficiency ratings since they boast highly airtight seals. Have us install these and we guarantee your living spaces will have better ventilation and insulation.
The Glass Panes Are Important, Too
When you’re in the market for new windows, you should also be critical of the kind of glass panes the windows feature. There’s usually an ENERGY STAR® rating sticker on the windows, but if you’re not sure, don’t be afraid to ask for professional recommendations.
Our line of casement windows come with High Performance™ Low-E4® thermal glass that’s designed to reduce UV ray intrusion, reducing heat intruding into your home while still letting enough daylight in. So what you get is an aesthetically pleasing window that boasts high insulation and ventilation.
