Replacing the windows in your sunroom with energy-efficient replacement windows can save you money on your energy bills.

Are you looking for a major upgrade for your home this spring with a great return on investment? Sunroom windows can make up a whopping 75% of your room, depending on the design that you choose. There are many different ways that you can customize your sunroom windows to match your style and needs.

The Types of Sunroom Windows

What is the purpose of your sunroom in general? Is it a home office, an indoor garden, or your favorite place to entertain? If you use your sunroom for three or four seasons, you should consider fixed and sliding windows for maximum flexibility. The most popular types of sunroom windows include:

Hinged Windows

The two main types of hinged windows are awning and casement windows, with the core difference between the two being the size and the location of the hinges. Awning windows are hinged from the top so that warm air can escape without worry of rain entering the room. Casement windows open from the side and can still let in a cool breeze during the warmer months.

Sliding Windows

These sunroom windows are very energy-efficient and manufactured in a wide variety of styles, colors, and glass types. Instead of sliding vertically, sliding windows go horizontally to allow for a beautiful view of the outdoors while still letting the breeze in.

Bay and Bow Windows

Bay and bow sunroom windows allow for a gorgeous panoramic view and let tons of sunlight in. Bay and bow windows are a perfect fit for a dining area or reading corner.

Picture Windows

While some people don’t like the idea of sunroom windows that aren’t able to open, picture windows are fantastic for higher-up windows or windows that are hard to access. If you live in a cool climate and don’t crack your windows very frequently anyways, these fixed windows are a great idea.

Glass for Your Sunroom Windows

Window glass is very important when it comes to energy-efficiency and keeping the cold (or warm) air out of your home. The most common types of sunroom window glass are:

  • Single Glazed Glass: These windows have only basic glass without much insulation and without UV-ray repelling features.
  • Double Glazed Glass: Double glazed windows have two layers of glass that have air or gas (usually Argon) in between for better insulation.
  • Triple Glazed Glass: This is the most energy-efficient glass. These windows are filled with either Argon or Krypton gas and provide superb insulation and UV protection.
