1. Black Window Design Benefits
Not only are black windows popular in 2018, the black window design is classic. Black windows have been around as long as long as white window frames. The contrasting look dates back to the Victorian Farm House era of the late 1800’s to early 1900’s.

2. Are Black Windows More Expensive?
Let’s go ahead and answer the question on most people’s minds. How much more will I need to pay for black windows? When comparing The Window Source’s black vinyl double-hung window to our white double-hung window, you can expect to pay around $200 more per unit.

3. Will I Save on Energy Cost with Black Windows?
There is a common misconception about high energy cost when it comes to black windows. Black does absorb more heat than white. I would not recommend a black window frame on a single pane window. But with The Window Source Atlanta’s Energy Miser Package, this is not a concern. Our premium Black 9000 Series windows with the Energy Miser Package include Argon gas filled panes with two layers on LowE coating. This gives our windows a U-Factor rating of .28.

When it comes to energy savings, white windows vs. black windows, you will not see any difference is energy cost.
