Window Buying Guide

Find just the right windows to fit your budget and style. New windows are a smart home improvement task because new windows will make your home more energy-efficient by allowing less of the warm or cool air produced by your furnace or air-conditioner to escape. These energy-efficient windows provide a strong seal against allowing hot or cold air from outside into your home. Learn what to look for when shopping for new windows, and read our window terms guide that explains various technical terms used on window labels. While the construction of windows and the materials and technologies used to build the windows are important, windows can also add a decorative element to your home. Discover different types of windows -- transoms, dormers, arched, and more -- that will add character to your rooms.
