OTHER/NOT SURE
Select this option if you need multiple types or assistance in determining the best type for your project.

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

AWNING 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.

SLIDER/GLIDER
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.

DOUBLE HUNG
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.

North Phoenix Replacement Windows

North Phoenix replacement windows can help temper the blistering heat of the Phoenix, AZ, summers. Running the air conditioner full blast is futile when that precious cold air flies right out of the windows. Phoenix window fram replacement is a worthwhile investment in a family's home value, not to mention comfort. A typical summer day in Phoenix, AZ, located in the Sonoran Desert, reaches temperatures over 100 degrees, and 120 degrees is not unheard of. This extreme heat is not only uncomfortable, it can be downright dangerous to people's health.

Neighborhoods in the North Phoenix region are affluent areas that combine residential, commercial and business ventures in small community settings. The urban village of Paradise Valley is one of the largest neighborhoods in North Phoenix, with a high cost of living, excellent public education and low crime rate. North Phoenix also boasts high rates of employment, as urban villages are designed to successfully balance housing and employment.

Single family homes in North Phoenix vary widely in price. The median asking price is $155,000 [1], and homes in the most affluent neighborhoods top $25 million. [2] No matter the value of the home, North Phoenix replacement windows can maximize the home's livability and improve its market value.

Reduce Solar Heat

Arizona residents' concern when installing North Phoenix replacement windows is keeping the heat at bay. Minimizing solar heat gain and maximizing air conditioning efficiency keeps the home cool and comfortable and can significantly reduce cooling bills. Windows are essentially holes in the home that can suck out energy, but proper window replacement can remedy that problem.

When selecting North Phoenix replacement windows, look for the solar heat gain coefficient. Most residential window replacements are labeled by the National Fenestration Rating Council with a decal that displays this and other ratings. If the solar heat gain coefficient is not listed, contact the Arizona frame manufacturer for this information. The solar heat gain coefficient measures the amount of heat admitted through the replacement windows, so a low solar heat gain coefficient means the home will stay cooler.

Solar heat gain coefficient is measured as a fraction of the sun's heat that penetrates a window. The number is expressed as a value between 0 and 1. Look for a rating of 0.25 or lower for the highest efficiency. A low solar heat gain coefficient will not impact visibility through the window, so homeowners can still enjoy the view and the natural light admitted through their North Phoenix replacement windows.

The building materials used for the North Phoenix replacement windows can also affect energy efficiency and heat resistance. Wood is the preferred material for both its aesthetic quality and performance. It is minimally conductive, so it will not transfer heat into the home. Wood does require periodic maintenance to restore the paint, especially in the hot, dry climate of Arizona.

Aluminum is highly conductive and can contribute to heat transfer into the home. Conductivity is a greater concern in cold climates, but taking measures to reduce conductivity can positively impact a home's cooling bill. Aluminum performs well in hot climates if it is shaded and not exposed to direct sunlight.

Vinyl replacement window frames are popular because they are inexpensive and good insulators. Vinyl can be problematic in hot, dry climates because it tends to fade and crack as it becomes brittle. Light-colored vinyl will reflect more light, making it less prone to cracking in the hot weather of North Phoenix.

Low-E Glass

Low-emissivity, or low-e, coatings manipulate the radiant heat transfer through North Phoenix replacement windows. These coatings are microscopically thin metal layers on the glazing surface of replacement windows, invisible to the naked eye so as not to obscure the view through a window. Low-e glass is manufactured for high, moderate or low solar heat gain. North Phoenix homeowners should invest in low solar heat gain low-e glass.

Low-solar heat gain low-e glass is spectrally selective: it blocks some wavelengths of the solar spectrum while admitting others. This coating admits visible light and blocks solar heat. Low-e coatings are also manufactured with tints that shade a room and lower visible light. These can help reduce glare, particularly on east- and west-facing windows where the sun shines brightest.

There are several ways to optimize the performance of energy-efficient North Phoenix replacement windows. To get the most benefit from low-e coatings, low solar heat gain coefficients and energy-efficient frames, make cosmetic adjustments to the home that are also functional. Planting trees near windows provides beautiful landscaping and natural shade that reduces the solar heat entering the window.

Bahama shutters open outward from the top of the window rather than the sides. This stylish design shades North Phoenix replacement windows as they turn the home's exterior into an island paradise. Installing replacement shades and blinds will also block the sun's heat, keeping the home cool and comfortable.
