The Key Features of a Well-Designed Window

These days, homeowners are spoiled for choice when it comes to window options, so much so that it can sometimes be difficult to pick out the best ones based on one’s needs. But choosing the right windows involves more than just how they look. Aside from aesthetics, it is worth taking other key factors into account to make the most of your investment. With that said, here are some things to look out for according to a trusted local window replacement company.

 Well-Designed Window

A High-Quality Build

A good window is one that feels solid in your hands. It should feel stable and not shaky. After all, you will want it to withstand whatever Mother Nature decides to throw its way. You’ll know you have good windows when the manufacturer has paid special attention to detail and quality.

Exceptional Energy Efficiency

A well-designed window will not only look good but also help you save on your utility bills. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, up to 30% of your heating and cooling costs can be attributed to energy loss due to old, drafty windows. When shopping around for new windows, be sure to look for the ENERGY STAR® label as well as the ratings on the energy performance label from the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC).


There is nothing worse than having your replacement windows stick out like a sore thumb from the rest of your home. For this reason, you want those that will complement the rest of your home’s architecture. For instance, sleek sliding windows work well with contemporary homes while classic casement windows typically go with a home with a more traditional aesthetic.
