There are numerous advantages to vinyl windows, whether in a new home or as replacements in older homes. Vinyl windows are a popular and economical alternative to aluminum, wood, and fiberglass, because they are energy efficient, easy to install, and effortless to maintain.
One of the well-known advantages of vinyl windows is their superb degree of insulation. When compared with aluminum window frames, vinyl keeps in heat during winter but seals your rooms from heat during summer. Vinyl windows are made from a plastic called polyvinyl chloride, better known as PVC. This material has a high R-value, which is a numerical way of assessing the amount of insulation a material provides.
An advantageous side effect of quality insulation is reduced energy costs through heaters, air conditioners, and fans. Even if you spend money to replace your existing windows with vinyl, you are likely to make up this cost in energy bills in a few years. When paired with double-paned glass, the costs could be significant. The windows are even recyclable for those who are concerned about the environmental impact of construction waste.

As you might expect, the glass itself plays a big role in a window’s energy saving ability. The secret is to have glass that: 1.) Reflects outside heat in sunny weather. 2.) Keeps heat from escaping the home in cold weather. 3.) Blocks 95% of harmful UV rays to resist fading interior furnishings.
The secret is a triple-layer Argentum coating that insulates up to 100% better than ordinary glass, yet is practically invisible.
