Got the energy-bill blues? There are many ways to reduce the cost of heating, cooling and electricity in the home. If your windows are older or showing signs of wear, they could be the culprits of exorbitant utility costs.

If you’ve decided to go the window replacement route, there are a few factors to consider, the first being the type of window material you want. If you’re looking for energy efficiency, low maintenance and the flexibility to match your home’s existing architecture, there’s a strong case to be made for vinyl.

Energy Savings

Vinyl windows are famous for their performance and energy efficiency. Depending on your climate and the type of windows you are replacing, new ENERGY STAR® certified vinyl windows with tripane glass can yield considerable energy savings. By keeping the outside air out, and the inside air in, your heating and cooling system won’t need to work as hard to achieve the desired comfort level. Choose vinyl windows for serious energy savings.

Skip the Fixes

There’s enough to do around the house without having to worry about maintaining windows. Vinyl windows are built to resist weather wear-and-tear and do not require sanding, painting or patching. If you want durable, reliable windows that won’t cause you extra trips to the hardware store, you can’t go wrong with vinyl.

They’ve got the Look

Vinyl windows are known for having a clean, white appearance that is standard in many modern homes. They also come with extensive colour and style options. Whether you are looking for a specific size or shape, colourful trim to match your home’s exterior, or an elegant grille pattern to add curb appeal, JELD-WEN has the custom capabilities to get the job done.
