Long Windows® Options and Showcase
What should every homeowner researching new windows know?
The basics of window style. Your replacement windows should provide outstanding energy efficiency, beauty and durability. Quantum2 Heat Mirror windows from Long Windows check all of these boxes — but what kind of window style should you consider?
- Double hung windows: Great for a period home — Victorian, Colonial or other traditional styles.
- Casement windows: These crank-out windows offer increased ventilation.
- Awning windows: Often found over fixed windows or doors, in garages or above eye level, offering ventilation and privacy.
- Hopper windows: Similar to awning windows, hopper windows vent at the top and open into your room. Great for dark basements and small bathrooms.
- Slider windows: Effective in hard-to-reach spots, like the space behind a kitchen sink.
- Bow and Bay windows: These windows provide great open views and make rooms feel larger.
- Picture and Garden Windows: Popular in all homes, picture and garden windows allow maximum light and offer excellent views of the outdoors.
The ABCs of new window energy efficiency.
Quantum2 Heat Mirror windows from Long Windows are among the most energy-efficient windows on the market today. How, you may wonder, is energy efficiency measured?
R Value: Measures a window’s thermal insulation. R value tells you if a window will keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Higher R values are preferred. Long Windows’ Heat Mirror windows have industry-leading R values between 5.6 and 7.1.
U Factor: Measures how well your windows trap heat inside your home. Lower U factor values are preferred. Long Windows’ Heat Mirror windows have an industry-leading U Factor of .13.
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC): Measures how well your windows block solar heat. Lower SHGC values are preferred. Long Windows’ Heat Mirror windows have an industry-leading SHGC of .27.
UV Transmission: Measures the window’s ability to block UV light. Long Windows’ Heat Mirror windows have an industry-leading .46 rating.
