Sunshine is a natural pick-me-up that can improve your productivity and mood. When getting replacement windows for your home, it’s a good idea to maximize the amount of sunlight that can enter your home through your windows.
Use Energy-Efficient Replacement Windows
The most important thing you need to do is to get the most energy-efficient windows possible for your window replacement project. Modern energy-efficient windows have low-emissivity (low-e) coatings on the inside and outside of the window glass. This coating can reflect heat and allow you to enjoy the benefits of sunlight without worrying about making your home feel uncomfortable. Energy-efficient windows can also block harmful ultraviolet (UV) light.
Use Large Replacement Windows
You should also aim to get large vinyl replacement windows for your home. The bigger the window is, the bigger its glass area. Windows with large glass areas provide great views and plenty of natural light. For best results, leave these large glass windows bare of any window treatments or window grilles. This will allow the most sunlight into your home.
Use Mirrors to Spread Sunlight
Adding mirrors to your rooms is also a great idea. You can use these mirrors to scatter and diffuse the sunlight coming from your new replacement windows. Position these mirrors in such a way that they can direct sunlight into the dark corners of the room.
