How Does Home Design Impact Performance of Windows?

If you’re buying a new home in Scottsdale, you have the ability to affect the amount of energy your home utilizes by using a good design. Likewise, if you’re searching for replacement windows, you have the opportunity to greatly improve the look of your home while using a good design that promotes the opportunity for a smaller carbon footprint. Let’s look at some tips for the Scottsdale area.

Consider the Direction Your Windows Face

You should think through the direction your windows face and the environment you live in.

For instance, if it’s warm in Scottsdale, you may want to think through placing more windows on the north side of your home to limit the amount of direct sunlight that will come inside your home. For windows that will still have exposure to bright sun, consider a design with overhangs and buying windows with Low-E glass, which can help decrease the amount of UV rays entering your home.

On the other hand, if the climate in Scottsdale is cooler a lot of the year, you might consider placing more windows on the south side of your house to improve your solar gain. Just like they can help keep the heat out in warmer area, Low-E windows help insulate and keep heat in your home.

Bumping Up Efficiency with Replacement Windows

Maybe you’re not building a home in Scottsdale or doing a huge remodel that may include shifting window locations. If you’re just searching for replacement windows, you still have a number of choices that can help you lower the carbon footprint of your home. Low-E windows are still a fantastic option. You can uncover an option suited for nearly every climate. In addition to the windows themselves, the installation is critical to the performance of your windows—great choices for professional installation exist in Scottsdale.

Windows should be installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and be properly sealed during installation to perform correctly. That’s a big reason that professional installation is a preferred option for many people.
