When you need new windows for your home in Edmonton or area we can help you find the best replacement windows for your budget and needs
We feature energy-efficient Jeld-Wen windows and manufacture our Factory-Direct windows, which are built in Edmonton, with the same energy-efficiency as brand-name windows at a lower cost for our customers.
Environment Canada statistics reveal Edmonton as having over 2345 total hours of bright sunshine - one of the sunniest cities in the country. Edmonton, with its northern Central Alberta location, can also have severe winter conditions producing extremely cold temperatures.
Replacing old windows with energy-efficient windows will greatly reduce heat-transfer loss or gain in your home and provide for more comfort while lowering your utility bill.
We can help you choose windows that can reduce the amount of heat entering your home during the summer or keeping warm air from escaping during colder winter days.
Windows and doors can be one of the biggest sources of energy loss in your home. Energy Star® windows can reduce your energy consumption, averaging 8%, when compared to a standard window. Energy loss is even higher with older, outdated windows and doors.
You have more options than you may realize when replacing the windows on your home. You can add to the aesthetic appeal by adding window styles or configurations to change the symmetrical design of the windows on your home.
You also may want to add ease of operation of a window, reduce solar heat gain of south and west facing windows or increase ventilation.
Edmonton building codes require egress windows for basement bedrooms for emergency exit in the event of a fire. Installing horizontal sliding windows allow for easy egress and will provide excellent ventilation when open.
For increased security of first floor windows we can install picture windows(1) (non-opening providing maximum security) while casement windows(2) (swing outward) or awning windows(3) (opens from bottom and swings outward) which are difficult to unlock providing both security and ventilation.
Because of the varied temperature changes annually in Alberta you’ll want to consider window options which will help you keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
We can help you choose windows that will allow for improved fresh air ventilation for warmer days and windows that allow for both ventilation and feature tighter seals to reduce heat loss in winter - important for north and east facing windows.
Replacing old windows with energy efficient windows and making good choices of the type of window depending on its location will reduce your energy cost and provide better comfort.
You’ll want determine which window provides the most convenience for opening and closing depending on the placement and location on the home.
Over the sink kitchen windows that are easy to open can include horizontal sliding windows(1) or casement windows(2) with an easy to use crank or awning windows(3) (exposed to the prevailing winds and summer storms) which will reduce the amount of rain entering the window.
