 Re: Vinyl Window Construction

Author: Mark A (---.dsl.tulsok.swbell.net)

I having been looking at vinyl windows myself with the understanding that they are so much more efficient. But after looking at www.efficientwindows.org, I now have my doubts. With all the reports of the vinyl worping (possibly why a steel reinforcer is used) and seeing that double paned, clear glass, low-e coating with an aluminum frame w/ thermal break seems to be the biggest gain in energy savings, I am back at looking at the aluminum frames. Check out www.efficientwindows.org/factsheets.cfm and pick your state and see the savings between the window options. Once you get beyond case 3, you don't really save enough to spend the money the salesman are asking for all the extras
