Factors to consider in a new or replacement window include a clean and pleasing look, ease of operation, ease of screen removal (if applicable), and efficiency. Aluminum can offer all of these. It is a superior material for both beauty and function. Aluminum is more cost effective than wood or steel, and is adaptable to a variety of styles. It can be particularly good for larger spaces, as it may be manufactured with a narrow frame and sash profile that optimizes the glass area. What remains is more of the view.
Keeping the heat outside is important in Arizona. SHGC, or the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, is a rating for the fraction of solar radiation that gets into a building through the window. In warmer climates, a good SHGC rating is .30 or less. Most Heritage aluminum windows are rated at a much lower number.
