It has been said that windows are the eyes of your home, allowing you to observe what’s going on outside and also let sunlight in. But the purpose of windows goes so much further than this. As homeowners, we rely on windows not only for ventilation and natural lighting, but for protection and energy efficiency as well. Replacing your windows is a big investment. That’s why the first step of your window upgrade should be deciding what material you are choose, and why. The experts at Brock Doors and Windows are glad to help you learn about the benefits that North Star vinyl replacement windows can offer you.

Vinyl Replacement Window Glass Options
There are many glass choices available for vinyl replacement windows, and the right combination of these options will give your windows superior energy efficient capabilities. Low-E coating is a microscopic layer on the glass, which has a high reflection rate. This minimizes radiant exterior heat which prevents heat gain in the summer while retaining heat in the winter. Vinyl replacement windows with a Low-E coating can significantly reduce your home’s energy loss.
Argon gas fills the space between window panes helping prevent heat loss and improve energy efficiency, but Krypton gas is even denser than Argon, and improves thermal performance even further. Bronze-tint glass cuts down on the glare and amount of heat that can enter windows. Obscure glass is used where a higher level of privacy is desired, because it offers an effective shield from outside while still allowing sunlight in. It’s commonly used for bathrooms, basements or along walkways. Brock offers obscure glass in a variety of different patterns.
