Nevada is a unique location in the country and it has different window needs than Minnesota, for example. Most homeowners only get replacement windows in Henderson, NV once so it’s important to do things right. Getting standard windows are replacements is great because the quality of even the standard windows is very high today. Technology has come far and it’s nice to know that even if you get just the basic window models, you’re getting something far beyond whatever your home has now. However, there are some upgrades that work really well in this area of the country. If you can afford them, consider them for your home. And consult with your window professional to decide what might work best for your home if you can’t get them all. Here are some of the replacement window upgrade options that Nevada residents might enjoy:
If you can get only one upgrade in this area of the country, this might be the one to choose. Low-E glass coatings are invisible metallic coatings that reflect heat. What that means is that when the intense Nevada sun is beating down on your house, you can keep the window coverings open to let in natural light, but you will not feel the heat from the sun. The heat is bounced back outside to keep your house cool, even if the windows are completely open to the sun. This works well in the winter, too, because the heat you put into your house is reflected back inside. You use less energy to keep your home warm.
Triple Pane Glass
Windows come with double pane glass as a standard today. That’s much better than single pane, that’s for sure. But if you want further efficiency for your home, triple pane is even better. It insulates the house not only with the extra pane of glass, but also with the space between the panes. You will notice that the sounds outside your house are much quieter and don’t come into the house as much, which is great if you live in a busy area. You will also notice lower energy bills overall due to the extra pane and the space between the panes.
Inert Gas Fillings
Normally, windows have air between the panes of glass, but there are upgrade options there as well. In Nevada, it’s important to consider inert gas fillings. These fillings are denser than air and slow down the possible airflow between the glass and your home. Yes, air can even get through glass at times, but it won’t happen much with inert gas fillings on your windows.
These are a few of the upgrade suggestions for replacement windows in Henderson, NV that help particularly well in this area of the country. If you can afford them all, great.
