Taylorsville Replacement Windows

There are so many styles and types of Taylorsville replacement windows; it is very hard sometimes to decide on just one for your UT home. And sometimes the more research you do, the more confused you become. There are some really sharp looking Utah replacement windows on the market today, and all of them can come with 'extras'. Here are a few tips to help you decipher the extras you need, for your Utah window replacements and the ones you don't.

Multiple Panes of Glass

Utah replacement windows come in all sorts of glass combinations now. In fact, the only thing that any Taylorsville manufacturer of replacement windows has in common with the competition is that none of them offer a single paned option for Taylorsville replacement windows anymore. But how do you know how many panes of glass are enough, or when you have more than you need?

It is important to first wrap your brain around the logic behind multiple panes of glass. This new design is not something the boys in marketing cooked up so they could charge more for their product. There is actually a very reasonable explanation for it, and here it is. The two panes of glass help to keep the temperature of the outside of your Taylorsville home from disturbing the temperature on the inside. This is true!

In order to understand how this technology works, let's use an analogy. Say you're outside on a warm, sunny Taylorsville day. You are dressed in jeans and a t-shirt. You are enjoying a nice cool Utah breeze when with it comes a cold front. In a very short period of time, the temperature drops several degrees, and you begin to feel a chill. You throw on a jacket, but you are still cold so you decide to go inside.

When you get inside your Taylorsville home, you take off the jacket and notice that the outside of it is cold to the touch. You touch your shirt and notice that in contrast it is warm. This is because the jacket was absorbing the cool air outside and the shirt was absorbing the warmth from your body. The space in between the shirt and the jacket was keeping the one from changing the temperature of the other.

This is exactly how it works in multiple paned UT replacement windows. The outer window absorbs the cold or heat that is on the outside, while the inner window does the same on the inside of your Taylorsville home. The space that exists between the panes of glass on your replacement windows keeps one from having an effect on the other. This can save a homeowner a lot of money on energy bills.

How many panes of glass are really needed in order to benefit from this effect? Dual paned Taylorsville replacement windows are now the standard, and they are quite sufficient to meet most needs. There is some evidence that triple paned Taylorsville replacement windows are more beneficial. However, they can cost more than their dual paned counterparts. It is really comes down to whether you can find a good sale, or how badly you want that added efficiency. There is no evidence that anything more than three panes does any better, so we don't recommend it.

Read Between the Panes

There are a number of window replacement options out there for what can be installed between your panes of glass. These can be for convenience, or increased energy efficiency. The two most common additional options are window treatments and argon and or krypton gas.

Argon and krypton are both clear, odorless gasses. They are non-toxic. Before some Taylorsville replacement windows are sealed, either one or a combination of both is pumped into the space between the panes of glass. The theory behind this is that these gases are thicker than air (which is what is pumped into most windows prior to sealing), and therefore adds further insulation to your Taylorsville replacement windows. There is a lot of conflicting information about how effective this process really is. There are just as many arguments for it seems as there are against. The theory does have a lot of sense to it though so if the price is the same or close, it wouldn't hurt to opt for the Taylorsville replacement windows that include this option.

One of the coolest things to come along in Taylorsville window technology is interior window treatments. Because of the multiple panes, it is now possible to mount mini blinds inside the Taylorsville replacement windows, between the panes of glass! This is beneficial in two ways. First, no dust! Your UT blinds will always stay clean. The second reason is no breaking! That's right; the blinds are completely protected inside your Taylorsville replacement windows and will not get damaged.
