Whether done in whole or in part – replacement windows can reduce energy consumption while improving the exterior look of a home. Sure, you don’t want to replace your home’s windows piecemeal because you wouldn’t enjoy the maximum savings that new energy-efficient windows provide, but it is a project that is one of the best ways to accomplish your goals.
At AM Window & Door Solutions, we can show you the benefits of replacement windows that will reduce your heating and cooling costs, while improving the profile of your home. Not to mention the boost in value that your home will accrue with new windows. When you talk to one of our windows and doors consultants, they will meticulously define your needs and wants and incorporate them into a recommendation that will serve your home’s windows needs.
Bow windows share some similarities to their cousin bay windows; they expand the size of a room through the protrusion which is the main selling point for the window, and let in more actual light than flat, conventional windows. But that is where the similarities end and the bow windows difference become relevant. A bow window isn't geometrically shaped – meaning it isn’t a flat piece of glass that two other pieces of glass set at an angle to the glass centre. Bow windows contain a number of panels – five usually – and are set so that the window takes a crescent shape to it. Also, different from bay windows is the fact the bow windows will open to allow ventilation – you can have one or more panels open, depending on taste.
AM Designer Series Bow Windows
As per the AM Designer Series of windows, the bow window comes in the standard white colour but can be modified for the customer to fit the design décor of the home. With the bow windows in our catalog, the panels can be four-panel or five-panel windows and they can have moving or non-moving parts to suit taste and application. Depending on the type of glass used in the construction, energy efficiency ratings can vary, but rest assured that they are the highest Energy Star and NAFS-11 ratings on the market. Bow windows can create great views for a homeowner and they have the uncanny ability for additional space like a bench or a breakfast nook. The windows are installed on a radius line faced outwards and they have the distinction of adding another dimension to a home’s décor inside and out.
A bow window will add more natural light to any room, provide ventilation that a bay window can’t. They have a modern look about them and the clean lines carve out a profile that makes them stand out. The improved curb appeal that bow windows provide also add dollars to the bottom line through increased value of your property with a bow window making a statement when you approach the home. The bright and airy look that the bow window provides is like catnip to homebuyers as they are looking for these features when purchasing a new home.
