Energy Efficient Fixed Windows Installation Services

Fixed

Windows can do more than simply give you a glimpse of your front or back yard. Fixed windows are a great accessory for any homeowner looking to spruce up their house, and Landmark Home Solutions can custom-make gorgeous fixed windows that match your tastes and are energy efficient as well.

What is a fixed window?

Fixed windows are units that are available in standard or picture style. They are specifically designed to allow natural light to flood the room they’re set up in. Fixed windows are great for rooms with high-ceilings, hallways, walkways and even closets. These windows, especially the picture option, create an unobstructed view of outside; hence, their name. Picture windows give you a clear picture of what is outside without you having to look through panes.

What is the difference between a standard and picture window?

Standard fixed windows and picture windows are almost the same. Neither have cranks, sashes or sections since the aforementioned are unnecessary to the window’s function. The difference between the two lies in the size of their frames. Additionally, picture windows have smaller frames while the standard fixed options use larger ones that align or match the site-lines of operational windows.

Many homeowners are partial to the standard windows and they continue to be a popular choice for our customers, too. Picture windows can also be part of a larger window unit, especially in a living room or dining room.

If picture windows don’t open, how can it be energy efficient?

It may seem like a lost cause to have a window that doesn’t open, however, it actually offers a great way to conserve energy. When you have a picture window in any room, its job is to let in natural light which it does very well. Natural light provides an efficient way to illuminate a room without using lamps or overhead lighting. Furthermore, our picture windows are energy efficient because they don’t let heat escape when it’s cold outside. Most at-home heat loss occurs through windows and our products are manufactured to lock heat in.

Standard windows

Standard windows continue to be one of the most popular styles of windows available on the market today. They offer a traditional appeal and can be opened like doors with their right or left side hinged, while the non-hinged side is locked in place via a latch.

Because standard windows have a wide opening range, they allow the homeowner to decide exactly how much air they want to bring into the home. They’re also airtight when closed and can be easily operated by the homeowner. This ensures they can be closed quickly if it begins raining outside. There are a range of standard windows available to match every home and décor palette.

Picture Windows

Picture windows are one of the most flexible and yet simple windows available on the market. They are designed to provide an unrestricted view of the outside, presenting a “picture” of the exterior space.

Because the window consist of a wide expanse of glass, it’s often used to bring in natural light within spaces where light is otherwise limited. Many homeowners choose picture windows when they wish to highlight an outside feature from within their living space, while others choose this style because they are highly energy efficient and can help to minimize the allergens and other airborne contaminants within the home. It’s a style of window that combines both functionality and aesthetics to form the ideal home addition.
