If you’re like most homeowners, the months leading up to a big purchase are consumed with research. Buying new windows for your Jacksonville home is a substantial investment that affects your family for many years to come. From the cost of your energy bill to the appearance of your home, new windows have a huge impact on nearly every aspect of your house. 


Window technology and features have rapidly evolved over the years. The number of options you have can quickly feel overwhelming, which makes it even more important to work with experts you can trust. American Window Products has serviced nearly 30,000 families over our 36+ years in the Jacksonville, FL area. When it comes to choosing between high-quality windows and their low-cost counterparts, here are some problems with the latter:


- Scraping and Painting: Older windows are often painted and require regular maintenance to prevent rotting. New vinyl and aluminum windows have little to no upkeep.

- Poor Ease of Use: If you begin to struggle with lifting or opening your windows, it may be time to repair or replace your windows. It should not be difficult to take advantage of basic window functionality. 

- Condensation: Moisture that collects on the glass and clouds your view can cause mold growth and increased utility bills. New windows with improved energy efficiency reduce or eliminate this problem. 



Keep an Eye Out for Energy Efficient Window Options


Many educated buyers have begun to place a high priority on the energy efficiency of the windows they purchase. When you shop around for windows, take a look at the R-value -- this indicates the energy efficiency of the materials and insulation. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation properties.


Also, pay attention to the U-factor -- the rate of conducted non-solar heat flow. The lower the U-factor, the better a window’s energy efficiency.


When you work with our team, we’ll identify the most energy efficient window option for your home. Always keep in mind that Energy Star rated windows often come with tax credits. 


Find the Quality Window Choice that's Right for You


Homes in Jacksonville, FL greatly vary in age and design from town to town. The window style you choose comes down to your stylistic preference and matching the aesthetic of your new or old home. You have a few main options when installing new windows in your home:


  • Hy-Lite Acrylic Block windows are a great option to increase privacy in certain areas of your home. The blocks come double- or triple-paned to automatically increase your home’s energy efficiency. Chat with our team about your many shape, size and customization options. 


  • Sliding windows are a common choice amongst Jacksonville homeowners. Depending on the style and level of windows you choose, this option is typically very affordable and low-maintenance. Of course, the possible downside to sliding windows is restrictions in ventilation because only half of the window opens.


  • Casement windows are perfect if your home requires clean, contemporary finishes. Casement windows pivot open on hinges -- similar to opening and closing a door. Expect this window design to be taller than they are wide.
