Did you know that Casement style windows are some of the most energy efficient windows you can install in your new home? The look goes well with popular european, french and classic style homes. Choosing windows designed with tinted glass can fight heat and keep the sunlight from fading your furnishing. Argon gas between double panes of glass further enhance their savings.
One of the worst windows, energy wise, is Jalousie style windows. A Jalousie window consists of parallel glass set in a frame. The louvers are locked together onto a track, so that they may be tilted open and shut in unison, to control airflow through the window. This style of window is very hard to keep air and water from leaking into or out of this unit.
