    • General Information
    • Picture Window
    • Energy Efficiency

    If you’re looking to replace your old windows with something new and gorgeous, NorthTech Windows Edmonton has many options. We customize all our products to fit your tastes and our windows compliment both the interior and exterior of any home they are placed in. Picture windows offer a classy alternative to traditional single hung windows and are energy efficient. If you have a great view but have trouble accessing it through your regular windows, having our team install a picture window will fix that problem allowing you to enjoy a clear view of the scenery outside.

    A picture window is a fixed window that is usually quite big and brings ample natural light into the home. Picture windows can run floor to ceiling or be part of a bay or bow window unit. Whether they stand alone or are part of a unit, picture windows do not open. The main role of a picture window is to let light in and help reduce a household’s energy consumption.

    Picture windows are energy efficient since although they are inoperable they allow light to pour into a room leading you to use less electricity (or none at all) to illuminate the space. This type of window is called as such because it offers unobstructed views, just like a picture in a frame.

    Picture windows can feature slats to increase ventilation and are perfect for people who suffer from allergies. Since they do not open, picture windows will not let in airborne contaminates from the outside. They also help conserve energy by allowing natural light to flood the room. During the day, you will not be required to use lamps or overhead lights if you have a large picture window in the space.

    In the winter, picture windows lock heat in making it impossible for cold air to enter. If you choose models from NorthTech Windows and Doors with Low-E glass, you know you are getting the most efficient picture window replacement model on the market. With heat loss minimized, you’ll probably notice savings on your monthly bills, especially when it’s cold out.

    WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PICTURE WINDOW AND A FIXED ONE?

    There is a very minor difference between picture and fixed windows: the size of the frame. Fixed windows have larger frames and are made to match with the accompanying operating windows in their set. Picture windows have smaller frames and can stand alone. They can be used as accent windows in a smaller room like a bathroom or powder room. Both window types are non-operational, easy to maintain and offer unobstructed views. It’s just a matter of taste.

    For unimpeded views of the scenery outside your house and to save on your energy bill, contact NorthTech Windows and Doors today. Let us install beautiful picture windows in your home so you can enjoy the view while conserving energy.

      • Is there anything I need to do to prepare for the installation?

        There are just a few things you’ll want to plan for: 1. Someone must be home to let our installers into your home. 2. Make space available in your driveway if at all possible so our driver can park close to your house. 3. Clear furniture from the area near the location where your new windows and doors will be installed. Our installers will be happy to help you upon their arrival if you’re unable to clear the area beforehand, but we cannot be held responsible for any damages. 4. Remove all window treatments from the windows including blinds, shades, curtains, etc. 5. Turn off security systems if applicable.

      • How to measure a window for replacement?

        Measure the width between the side jambs at the top, middle and bottom. Measure all the way to the jamb and both sides and the middle and record the smallest measurement. Your objective is to buy a window that fits within that opening.

      • How much does window replacement cost?

        If you are deciding which new home window styles you are wanting to have installed, you may want to look at the different costs of each window style beforehand. Window replacement costs on average $280 to $750 per window installed based on the window type and additional features.

      • What should I look for when trying to determine if my windows need to be replaced?

        There are five key elements to look for: 1. Do you see moisture, condensation or fog between the panes of glass? If so, you probably have a seal failure. 2. Is your furniture or carpet faded from the sun's ultraviolet rays coming through the window? If so, you probably do not have Low-E glass that blocks the sun's harmful rays. 3. Do you have windows rated for your climate? Cold Canadian climates require higher ER ratings to increase energy-efficiency. 4. Do you struggle to open, close, or lock your windows? Poor operation means the window structure is weak and failing. 5. Do you see peeling or rotting wood around the window frame? If so, it’s time for a replacement.

      • How to install a replacement window?

        Vinyl windows are a common and affordable type of window to install in your home. How do you decide whether to replace your old windows? Learn your options, relative cost and effectiveness of repairs, and how to judge whether a window should be saved or thrown away.

      • What should I do if I have an issue with my new windows?

        The NorthTech warranty covers 100% of both parts and labor. All you have to do is give us a call. We’ll come over and fix the issue with no questions and no hassles.
