Feeling worn down by this year’s long, hot summer? Given the extreme temperatures we experience here in the Valley, the summer season is a great time to consider upgrading to more energy efficient windows in your Arizona home. If you need some design inspiration, read on to explore a few ideas for the best summer window replacement based on your unique priorities.

1. Most Ventilating Windows

If you’d like to bring tons of fresh air into your home, consider double hung windows! These unique windows have two operable sashes, one on top and one on bottom, to give you greater control over the amount of air flowing in and out. Thanks to this ultra-ventilating design, they remain one of the most popular window styles in Arizona year after year.

2. Most Dramatic Windows

For a dramatic window replacement—both from the interior of your home as well as from the curb—it’s hard to beat the immediate eye-catcher of a bay or bow window installation.

  •  Bay Windows: Bay windows typically have three large glass panes arranged at a roughly 45° angle to one another.
  • Bow Windows: Bow windows have four or five glass panes, providing a gentler, curved look with slightly narrower sightlines.

3. Sunniest Windows

Phoenix experiences around 300 days of sunshine per year, one of the highest of any major city in the country. To take full advantage of this bright sunshine, install a glass wall system! Crafted with floor-to-ceiling glass panes, glass wall systems add a contemporary look and plenty of natural light to any space.

4. Most Energy Efficient Windows

Although practically all window replacement options can be made more energy efficient depending on their engineering, one style stands out for its natural efficiency: picture windows. Unlike most window designs, picture windows do not open, which allows them to keep their weathertight seal completely uncompromised.

5. Lowest-Maintenance Windows

Whichever style of window replacement you prefer—from eye-catching bow windows to cozy garden windows—you’ll enjoy a lifetime of easier maintenance if you choose the right product. For long-term durability that can withstand the powerful Arizona sun, the experts here at AZ Valley Windows recommend vinyl windows or Infinity from Marvin fiberglass windows.

These high-quality windows come with a range of features that not only resist wear and tear but also better insulate your home for comfort and energy savings:

  • Low-E glass coatings
  • Argon gas-filled chambers
  • Double- or triple-paned glass
  • Built-in weather stripping and insulation
  • Vinyl or Ultrex fiberglass frames
  • And more!
