Select this option if you need multiple types or assistance in determining the best type for your project.

Allow natural light into top floor rooms such as attics that may not have walls for windows.

Like casement windows, they crank out, but the sash opens upward instead of sideways.

STORM WINDOWS Protect older windows against energy inefficiency and are an economical option.

These windows feature a sliding track allowing the sashes to move left and right.

SINGLE HUNG WINDOWS Only the bottom sash opens. The top half of the window is stationary.

Both sashes move up and down. Generally both sashes will pop in for easy cleaning.

BAY/BOW WINDOWS Generally protrude out from the exterior wall of a home, creating a wide view and wide window sill inside.

CASEMENT WINDOWS These windows crank out and allow maximum air flow in and out of a home.

BASEMENT EGRESS These maximize light in a basement and are also used for safety.

Greenville Replacement Windows

All South Carolina property owners should consider Greenville replacement windows. If you have any windows in your home that are over ten years of age, you could be literally throwing your hard earned money out the window. New technology has made replacement so beneficial that it really would behoove you to give some serious consideration to proceeding with a South Carolina replacement windows project.

About Energy Efficiency

The term energy efficient has been bantered around quite a bit in the past. This has happened so much so that it may not have a lot of meaning to you anymore. Every new product on the Greenville marked claims that it is energy efficient and it can make a person skeptical to hear. There are even some products that claimed they were efficient only to be discovered as not being so somewhere down the line.

So, when it comes to South Carolina replacement windows projects like window sash replacements, you may wonder if the same theory holds. Are they energy efficient? If so, are they any more effective than what my Greenville home already has? These are good questions to ask, and you wouldn't be an informed consumer if you didn't ask them.

The answer is yes. Window technology is such now that Greenville homeowners can literally save hundreds of dollars a year on heating and cooling costs just by ordering SC replacement windows. This of course depends entirely on the current age and makeup of what you already have, so it's important that you know the answer to that. If what is already on your Greenville home was there when you got there, and you got there more than 7 or so years ago, you may really benefit from making the change.

If you have been in your home less than 7 years and don't know when your current ones were purchased, you may want to meet with an SC replacement windows retailer in your area. The retailer can take a look at what you have and tell you if they are worthwhile to replace. Keep in mind though that they are looking to make a sale, so be sure to ask plenty of questions in order to determine whether the Greenville installer is being honest with you or whether he is attempting to take you for a ride.

Why are they More Efficient?

But why are Greenville replacement windows more energy efficient than your current ones? What is so special about the new technology that makes them preferable to what you have now? Why should you incur the extra expense of ordering Greenville replacement windows when what you have is working just fine?

These are all very valid questions. Unfortunately, we may not be able to completely answer them. The reason for this is because purchasing Greenville replacement windows can be a rather large expense (most of the time, these SC home improvement projects can range from $2,000 and up), and it is really up to you to decide whether the benefits outweigh or offset the costs. However, it is always important to be as informed as possible when making decisions like these, so understand the reasons before you decide.

First, Greenville replacement windows are more energy efficient because they are thicker and have more layers of window pane. Whereas in the past, replacement windows had one pane of glass, new ones have 2 or more. This adds extra insulation that did not exist previously. Additionally, a new window means a new seal. As time goes by, the seal on a window can deteriorate and break. This causes free air flow between your Greenville home's interior and the outside world, which in turn causes your electricity bill to increase.

There are other, additional features that can increase the energy efficiency of your Greenville replacement windows. First, more panes of glass can be added. If two panes of glass double the efficiency of a window, it stands to reason that more panes will also increase it. While a third pane will not triple the efficiency as you might expect, the energy efficiency of your Greenville replacement windows will certainly increase if you get a third window pane. Above three panes of glass is usually not recommended, as there is such a thing as too much of a good thing, so don't get duped if a retailer tells you a four (or more) paned window is what you need.

In addition to more panes of glass, manufacturers like to inject gas into their Greenville replacement windows. This gas (usually krypton or argon) is placed between the panes of the window prior to its being sealed. The thought behind this is that the gas is thicker than the air that would otherwise be there, thus adding more insulation and further increasing the energy efficiency of your Greenville replacement windows.
