When it comes to styles, did you know that the less moving parts a window has, the greater it’s thermal efficiency will likely be? This means that a single hung window will be more efficient than a double hung window.
And did you know that for Boulder, replacement windows containing specially treated low-E glass can give a single pane the thermal efficiency of a double pane, or more? The low-E (low emissivity) glass reflects heat. This means it reflects the sun’s heat away from your windows during the hot, dry Boulder summers. You house will automatically stay cooler, requiring less output from your AC system. In winter, the low-E glass also insulates your home better, allowing less to escape through the window.
