The good news about shaped windows is that they are fixed, meaning they don't open. Because they don't have moveable parts, shaped windows can be an economical solution to gaining more light in any room. Their robust design also means that they generally will be better insulated than windows that open. They can come from wood, vinyl, or fiberglass. The better quality of the glass the better they will do for energy efficiency.
Glass options can include triple pane and glass coatings. Thankfully. Energy Star has made it easy to find high windows that are energy efficient. When shopping for a new geometric shaped window, you have to look for an energy star label for the best energy savings possible.
Many brands incorporate Low-E glass that will reduce heat gain. This feature will also block harmful UV rays. By blocking UV rays your carpet and furniture will not become faded, which is a great feature for many who do not want their homes to have sun wear spots. Placer Exteriors can install any geometrically shaped window you select. We strive to establish energy efficient windows that are not only gorgeous and accent your home but also save you cash on your energy bill. Below are brands that produce energy efficient models that will suit just about any style home.
