When you are choosing what kind of replacement windows to buy for your home in Columbus, Ohio, there are a lot of things you will have to make decisions on — the materials, the style, double-paned or triple-paned, single- or double-hung windows vs. slider windows. Did you know you can also choose what kind of glass is used?
There are several types of glass to choose from, depending on your budget and how energy-efficient you want your windows to be. Let’s say you have chosen to go with the lotus style of double-hung windows with triple-pane glass for your replacement windows. These windows come standard with the Ultra S™ glass system, which features double-strength glass, and two high-performance Low-E coatings (to minimize how much ultraviolet and infrared light gets through) on that glass. This is our top-of-the-line style of windows and they will provide the best efficiency for your home.
However, Zen also offers practically endless possibilities for various double- or triple-paned glass, spacer and Low-E coating combinations, if you prefer to choose another glass. For example, we have glass with U-factors (rate of heat loss) ranging from 0.22 to 0.29, and glass with SHGC (amount of solar radiation admitted) from 0.19 to 0.29.
So from styles with double- or triple-glass to several different Low-E coatings, Zen has you covered — so that you can select the best glass option for your Columbus, Ohio, home.
Two of our double-hung window styles — lotus and nirvana — come standard with double-strength glass, but we do also offer a wide selection of decorative glass, including leaded or etched glass designs, to allow you to customize your replacement windows even more.
