Vinyl framed windows are the best option for complete replacement windows in the Bryan and College Station (TX) areas. Since the frame is not a thermal conductor, vinyl is more efficient than aluminum framed windows. In addition, the construction of vinyl windows is much tighter which eliminates the draftiness of other windows.
Enercon's primary source for vinyl windows is Burris Windows in Dallas. They offer the Burris Tectview AC and EX line of windows. Vinyl windows are available in three frame colors: white, tan and clay. In addition, the white windows can have a bronze laminate applied to the exterior.
Vinyl windows are available in almost any style to meet your window needs. Enercon employees can install vinyl replacement windows in any type of home without damaging the structure. We use our own full-time employees that do this work every day.
Burris vinyl windows come with an industry leading limited lifetime warranty.
Insulated Glass Windows
Insulated glass units have a sealed air space between the two panes of glass to create an insulating pocket. When the seal fails, you lose the insulating pocket and will notice unsightly moisture and shadows between the glass panes. With few exceptions, these insulated glass units can be replaced reusing the existing window frames.
For most applications, there are two options for insulated glass; clear and low-e insulated glass. Clear glass provides an insulated pocket but does not significantly reduce solar heat gain. Low emissivity (low-e) glass provides an insulating pocket as well as a solar heat gain barrier. Windows with clear insulated glass can be upgraded to low-e glass. However, it does have a tint when viewed from the outside so one might need to do a section of windows for aesthetic purposes.
Enercon Windows and Hardware, LLC. offers a ten-year limited warranty on its insulated glass replacements.
Solar Screens and Shades
Solar screens and shades are a relatively inexpensive option to reduce solar heat gain. These screens (or shades) cover the entire window and block from 70% to 99% of the solar heat gain. Both the frames and the mesh are available in a number of colors to match your home. These screens can be bent to match geometric windows. Interior mounted roll-up screens are also available with solar mesh.
