There are lots of things that make a house tick. Countless little systems and foundations work together to keep a home stable, heated, and secure. One object that tends to get ignored is the common window. They’re in every home, typically many at that, but they’re rarely more than an afterthought.
Windows are important though, and not just aesthetically. Homes that have poor window insulation lose hundreds of dollars a year. Installing a window improperly can lead to rotting, mold, drafts, or cracks. All issues that will mean more money spent on heating and energy. This is what makes windows so secretly complex. There’s a lot that goes into an efficient window.
For example, window frame and coating. Window frames can be more or less durable, efficient, or customizable. Picking the right one for the right setting is the key to a good looking, efficient home. Other factors like window coatings are similarly important though. These allow heating to be kept out in hot environments and energy to be kept inside in cold environments.
On top of these two, there are window panes, fillings, spacers, and countless other small factors. A window’s first purpose is to give a view to the outside in and vice versa. Although this job simply cannot be accomplished effectively without that same window keeping insulation effective. An inefficient home is an expensive home, something all people hope to avoid.
