In looking at what is available, you will find a wide variety in single pane windows that will add beauty to the overall appearance of the home. These windows will provide light, warmth and ventilation to each room as well as extending a beautiful outside look. When properly placed, single paned windows will also add value to the property.
There is a debate regarding the installation of single pane windows compared to the double pane energy efficient ones. There are a number of pros and cons regarding the use of windows with a single pane.
Features of single pane windows

Considerations for single pane windows
A good place to investigate the use of single pane windows is ENERGY STAR, a government program that provides extensive information regarding the use of single pane windows for Houston. They highlight climate zones and report what is required to obtain the most efficiency from different types of windows.
It is possible for single pane windows in Houston to also be partially energy efficient. This depends on the location of the window and the thickness of the glass. Equally important is proper framing of the window or that it has protection from shrubbery.
Another way to make single pane windows more efficient is by adding laminated glass. This reduces the outdoor temperature as well as indoor temperature (caused by heated air or air conditioning). Sheets of plastic will also improve energy efficiency but are not attractive to the eye.
Options for single pane windows
Color is something that can also add to the energy efficiency of single pane windows by reflecting the exterior light. These colors include blue, brown, grey or black tinted glass. Using color not only provides privacy for the home’s occupants but also adds an overall attractive view of the house. In addition, it is possible to purchase a frame color that will enhance the overall appearance of the window.
Choosing the correct home windows requires important considerations. These include the design of the window (single or multiple panes), if it will improve the overall view of the building and if it will provide a sufficient barrier against heat and cold.
