When it comes to choosing new windows for your home, you need to focus on the frame material. Window frames control the insulation of your home, so you want to choose a material that will prevent drafts.

Vinyl frames are becoming more and more in-demand because they offer less maintenance than wood, but with almost the same insulation quality.
An important feature of any window is the glass because it contributes to the insulation quality. Double-pane glass windows are extremely common because they reduce heat loss and are energy efficient. There is a sealed air space between the layers to effectively reduce heat loss. You can also design your glass panes to be highly insulative by having an invisible metal coating on one surface. When looking at window glass, you need to focus on the u-value, which measures its resistance to heat loss.
