You’ll need to discuss the number of panes you want in the glass (double or triple), whether you want air or gas filled panes, what kind of U-value and other ratings the windows carry, whether or not they have low-E coatings, and so on. If you want efficiency, examine the little details in a big way and you’ll be much happier with your home’s comfort and your lower energy bills.
