State of the Art Vinyl Replacement Windows from The Window Connection - NT Window Dealer of the Year.
An outstanding manufacturer and replacement window selection for North Texas is the Energy Master and the Presidential X-110 units. They have a SHGC of .20. This is one of the best performing vinyl replacement windows out there at its price point. It comes stock with Cardinal's top of the line 366 Low-E Glass and Argon Gas filled insulated glass. It is one of our best sellling Vinyl Replacement Windows. The window is assembled in Mansfield Texas with Cardinal 366 Glass from the Cardial Manufacturing Plant in Waxahachie.
This window has optional foam filling, triple glazing and Krypton Gas instead of Argon Gas for even lower U Values and better energy effeciency. The U Values are at .29 on a standard vinyl single hung replacement window that is double paned. It will have a SHGC of .20 or .21 depending on the window having grids or no grids. The U Value can go down to .17 with Triple Glazing and Krypton Gas but the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient will always be in the .20 neighborhood.
High performance glass does have some color in it. More color actually means more Low E coating and therefore, better performance as far as the SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coeffecient). This is the amount of heat that can come through the glass itself. This window can get down to a .21 or .20 SHGC. Normal double paned come in at .87. Lower is better!
We pride ourselves on perfect arches and circle tops in every application. There is a reason we offer the best from every manufacturer.
Options, options and more options.
We're very proud to have been named NT Window Dealer of the Year. NT representative Dennis Northcut said it was our commitment to quality installation and customer service that made it happen. Thanks Dennis!!! I think you guys rock too!
I use this window a great deal in North Dallas, Plano, Richardson, Frisco, McKinney, Lantana and other upscale areas in and around North Dallas.
This one is interesting. Did you know the shutters and the windows should line up in best case scenarios? The meeting rail of this replacement window needed to match the shutter break and as you can see, it does. Attention to detail is a Window Connection specialty.
This shot shows our attention to detail on caulking beads. Our technique is very specific and is on YouTube and watched dozens of times daily.
I love the difference new replacement windows make in appearance, but the real value is the energy savings. Energy Master replacement windows can save up to 30% off your current utility bill. This can translate to over $12,000 over 10 years in overall savings by saving just $50 per month at current utilities costs. This can easily be done in most homes with the correct products and installation.

Here's some interesting industry insight. Many window manufacturers sell a given window under several different names. The Energy Master and the Traditions are the same but sold in different circles. Much like the Alside product is the same as the Revere Window, so also is the Executive and the Presidential. Interestingly I think this is also called the Preservation from some vendors. Locally made here in Mansfield Texas, it is a Window Connection favorite for a great value and good bang for the buck. Available as a single hung or a double hung.
The Double Hung Vinyl Replacement Windows and the big discussion about Single Hung vs. Double Hung. Single Hungs have more glass and somewhat better performance (.01 lower U value). It leaks a little less because the top sash is stationary as opposed to a double hung which has operating and tilting top and bottom sashes. The real drawback to the double hung is also that it has a frame thickness at 3 3/4" as opposed to the 2 5/8" we see in the single hung.
The frame is 2 5/8" from glass to edge of window. It is the smallest frame in the industry for a full framed vinyl replacement window, It is very desireable in narrow windows or in cases where we really can't afford to loose light. The meeting rails are steel reinforced to prevent sagging, it's locally made and it has a lifetime warranty.Our shipping costs are minimal and it's among the very best values I can find here in Dallas and Fort Worth.
There are many variables in manufacturers willingness to make certain types of archtops, extended leg circle tops, full radius, very tall windows and some of the unusual things we see in North Texas, Knowing who makes the best product for a specific opening is key. This was cost effective but perhaps may have been better as a twin from a different window manufacturer. Knowing the options and why to buy can make a residential window project timeless.
Sometimes people ask for wood windows and upon some inquiry we find out it's really about the grids on the window more than the window itself. Usually we see grids between the glass, in this case we have grids that stick out from the surface of the glass on the inside as well as the outside. This is a great look but is somewhat costly. Grids between the glass are very affordable. All windows can be manufactured either way. This is an Energy Master Double Hung.
First it's important to understand that there are really only two main frames involved here.
At The Window Connection we sell the Energy Master and the Presidential. Energy Master has a bevelled exterior profile while the Presidential has a cove moulding exterior profile.
The Executive is an Energy Master with no night latches on the inside. These are designed to prevent the window from going up more than about 4 inches when engaged. This is the primary difference in those two.
The Traditions is a Presidential main frame with a slightly different sash member and different locks. The Traditions also comes with a foam filled frame as a standard feature instead of as an upgrade. Foam filling is available on all of the NT Window products. It will lower the U value from a .29 to a .27.
