Here in the Southwest, we have a unique climate and landscape that requires smart choices when it comes to building materials. Between the blistering heat, low humidity and intense sun exposure, our climate makes vinyl windows a great choice for homeowners and builders.
1. Vinyl Windows Can Save You Money
If you’re looking for a way to decrease your energy bills, vinyl windows are for you; the increased insulation they provide makes them an ideal choice. Vinyl windows are on average about 20% more energy efficient than aluminum or other commonly used windows.
Here in the desert we see soaring temperatures in the summer and cool, sometimes freezing, nights during the winter. Vinyl windows can help maintain the comfortable temperate you’ve worked hard to create in your home. Vinyl windows are welded together, creating an airtight seal and decreasing dust and air that might slip in. UV inhibitors give you added protection from Arizona’s scorching sun.
On top of energy efficiency, vinyl windows can also increase the value of your home. Their ROI makes them a great economical choice now and in the long run.
2. They Look Great
Vinyl windows can not only save you money, but they look great as well. They are made mostly of a plastic known as Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC. PVC windows can be molded to fit any home, which is helpful here in the Southwest where there are a variety of architectural designs and home styles.
Vinyl windows can also be made available in a wide range of colors, shapes and styles. Their ability to be customized makes it easy to find the perfect fit for your home.
3. They Require Little to No Maintenance
Vinyl is extremely easy to clean and requires very little routine maintenance. Vinyl can provide the appearance of wood without the threat of termites or other infestations, and they won’t rust, fade, crack or warp. They are also good for noise reduction. Easy to use and easy to clean, vinyl windows are a great choice for the Southwest.
XO Windows has a variety of different types of vinyl windows including horizontal sliding windows, single hung windows, picture windows and casement and awning windows.
