Yes, windows play a part in all of these things.
Maximizing the views -providing you with a welcoming and upbeat place to live.
Filling your home with light – making it inviting to walk into and be in.
Proving you with wise energy usage through design – offering cool breezes in summer and warmth in winter.
So why do, the humble windows and doors of our homes receive such little attention and budget in construction of a new home.
A vital functionality of windows and doors is energy efficiency. An energy-efficient window or door also protects us against heat, cold, noise pollution, and fire. The question to be posed is why are there still so many being manufactured using energy efficient glazing.
Windows and doors are often left last on the list as a cost within a build, the budget is often cut to make way for other items.
Stop and remember, good window and door preparation before you build can save you dollars in the future. Rising costs of electricity must make us stop and look to our choices when it comes to glass in our homes.
Tinted or Low E glazing is a must for every home, it minimizes heat loss in the winter and reduces heat gained in to the home in summer. Tinting also provides a shield against harmful ultraviolet rays and glare.
So if your windows are already in place, then consider the application of a window film to your existing glass – many products can provide excellent results and aid in your comfort.
On the whole, for all their benefits and functions; windows and doors deserve more attention and a better budget than what they are often given. So ensure you make a wise choice for your future comfort.
