We live in one of the harshest environments for building products in the world. The dry and hot desert environment reaps havoc on your home with damaging UV rays and extreme temperature swings. This creates major challenges to consider when selecting the right window for your home. Wood frames windows will not hold up. Fiberglass windows can chip and yellow. Aluminum windows provide little or no insulating value. Cheap, builder grade vinyl windows lose seals and can discolor or warp. So what is the answer to all these challenges? A high quality, vinyl frame window made specifically for our harsh desert climate that only Desert King Windows can offer. We only install windows and doors that we know can take the punishing heat and UV rays only our environment delivers. New vinyl windows reject the harsh heat and frigid cold while allowing natural sunlight into our homes. These energy-saving windows can even be custom-made. Desert King Windows offers a variety of vinyl windows for your consideration.
Single and Double Hung Windows
When you are shopping for replacement windows or windows for a new construction home, you may be wondering whether to choose single or double hung windows. Single hung windows are ones in which only the bottom sash can be opened, while the top sash remains in place. In a double hung window, both upper and lower sashes can be opened. Single hung windows are found in most modern buildings because they are cheaper to install. However, because double hung windows are easier to clean and offer superior ventilation, these can save you money over time.
Casement windows are windows that are opened with a hand crank and extend sideways when they are open. They’re breezy, easy to clean and have a sort of romantic ambiance about them in homes near the water or natural settings. They have a tight window seal when closed, and screens are on the inside so you can pull them out if you need to, even if you’re on the second floor. If you are looking for a classic design that offers modern insulating technology, casement windows may be a great choice for you. Come to the Desert King Windows showroom or look through our gallery to find the stylish casement windows you need.
Energy Efficient Windows
Whether you’re building a new home or replacing the windows in an older one, choosing energy-efficient windows will always pay off in the long run. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, about 25 to 30% of your heating and cooling costs come from energy loss through your windows, so installing energy-efficient windows will always save you money. When you’re choosing new windows, look for the Energy Star label and the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) ratings, which will give you all the information you need about your new windows’ energy-efficiency.
