Yet, with over 50 different types of heat-reflective glass and a plethora of framing materials, how do you make the right choice? Here are some guidelines to see you though the process.

Energy Savings

High quality Energy Star windows should pay for themselves within five to seven years.

Styles and Materials

When it comes to the frames, vinyl windows are probably the least expensive and the most convenient to maintain. In fact, they can last for 20 years or more. Aluminum windows are still around, but they've become less popular because they're less energy efficient than those made from other materials. Some people opt for wood windows for their aesthetic appeal, but most experts recommend that, even if you choose wood for replacement windows for upstairs, first story vinyl windows have the advantage of being less appealing to termites. Vinyl-wood composite windows are also available.

1. A lifetime warranty on labor and materials, including seals, glass breakage, hardware, and screens.

3. Non-metal spacers that eliminate condensation problems and increase efficiency.
