Lowered Heating & Cooling Costs — Thermopane Glass Windows
Amos Exteriors installs quality-crafted thermopane windows for your home. Thermopane windows are designed to insulate your home from the elements—whether it’s hot summer days or the frigid winds in the winder. An investment in thermopane windows will pay off every time you look at your energy bill.
How Thermopane Windows Save You Money
Thermopane windows are designed with insulated glass units (IGUs) and are the modern evolution of single-pane glass. To improve the insulating qualities of single-pane glass windows, homeowners used to install storm windows for the winter. Adding a second window pane created an additional layer of protection from the outside elements. Thermopanes take this a step further by sealing insulating gases between two panes of glass.
IGUs use inert gases with low heat conductivity. The most common being Argon, which conducts roughly 33% less heat than standard air. This heat transfer reduction works both ways with thermopane windows. During the summer, your home’s interior will absorb less heat from the outdoors and will lose less heat in the winter. Your heating and cooling systems won’t need to work as hard, and your energy costs will be reduced.
Window Replacements for Energy Efficiency
Many homeowners have their windows replaced to increase energy efficiency. Replacing drafty, old windows will significantly cut energy costs. Our window replacement specialists can assess your specific window needs to help eliminate drafts.
Should You Replace Your Old Windows?
The specialists at Amos Exteriors will assess whenever window replacement is necessary, but there are some things to consider:
Age of Windows – If your home’s windows are the originals and are primarily in good condition, repairs could be the best option. However, if parts are impossible to find, replacement may be necessary.
Rotting Window Frames – Rotting wood frames can be repaired if the problematic areas are isolated. The more damage, the higher the chances replacement will be necessary.
Window Seal Integrity – Drafty windows will wreak havoc on your energy bill. While small drafts could possibly be repaired, excessive drafts will likely require replacement.
Our window replacement specialists provide a free consultation and estimate to replace your home’s windows.

Window Specialists at Amos Exteriors Can Help With Many Types of Windows!
Double Hung Windows
A double-hung window is a window where both the top and bottom window sashes slide open vertically. The difference between a single hung and a double hung window is that in a single hung the top doesn’t open. In a double-hung, both window sashes slide to open and tilt for easy maintenance. One of the best benefits when opening a double-hung window is larger openings for more fresh air in the summer. Double-hung windows are a perfect window option for the Indianapolis climate, along with adding considerable curb appeal to your home!
An awning window is hinged at the top and open outward from the bottom. This allows for ventilation and protection from the rain. They are often installed higher on walls for privacy or can be combined with large stationary windows for a better view.
Casement windows are hinged on the side and open like a door, usually by using a crank. Casement windows are among the most airtight options available. They are one of the better window options for establishing a well-insulated, energy-efficient home. Because of the way the sash and frame meet, a stronger weather-tight bond can be made. Casement windows will help reduce energy use.
A picture window is a fixed-pane window and is the most energy-efficient since it doesn’t open. The picture window gets its name because it is designed to give you a clear view of your surroundings without any obstructions. It acts as a picture frame for the scenery outside the window.
A bay window is a series of double-hung or casement windows that form a “bay” that protrudes outside of the home. They are among the more attractive options available for your home but can be particularly challenging to install. Bay windows are popular in the Indianapolis area because they brighten up a room and create a feeling of openness.
A bow window is like a bay window in that it protrudes from the house and creates a bench-like seat on the inside. The difference between the two is that a bow window is curved, creating a rounded appearance. A bay window, however, consists of a picture window flanked by two other smaller windows.
Slider windows are like sideways double-hung windows – the sashes slide sideways. Sliding windows are great in homes with shorter walls, where taller, slender windows would be more appropriate. They are also useful in areas where it can be challenging to open or close a window, such as above the kitchen counter.
At first glance, a garden window can look a lot like a bay window. It has three panels and protrudes outdoors. But the key difference between a garden and bay window is that side panels of a garden window are set at 90-degree angles. Bay windows are usually positioned at 45-degree angles. A garden window creates a box-like area where you can keep plants to maximize the amount of light they get. Garden windows are most often used in kitchen areas.
An egress window is a window designed to be operable for allowing emergency escape and rescue. According to building codes, these windows are required in every room considered living space. Egress windows are not only installed in basement bedrooms but also installed in attics. In most cases, the building code requires the opening of an egress window to be equal to or greater than 5.7 square feet, having a minimum opening height of 24 inches, and minimum opening width of 20 inches. The window can’t be higher than 44 inches from the floor. Window wells are mandatory if the window is below ground level.
