Double & Triple Hopper Window

Glass panes are the largest area of any window and the most vulnerable to heat loss and gain. To provide adequate thermal performance and save up your money on energy bills, a minimum of 2 panes are required. Traditional 7/8″ double glazing options are used and can accommodate 1-1/4″ for all hopper windows.

In areas with a harsh climate, triple pane hopper windows can be especially profitable. Ecoline triple glass packages qualify for high energy-rating standards with 1-3/8″ and 1-1/4″ options available. It can be used in combination with gas injection and/or LoE glass coatings but are not necessary.

A hopper window usually opens at the bottom and swings into the room. This unit is popular to be used above doors for more light or for egress purposes.

The main benefits of these units are versatility, energy efficiency, ventilation and ease of use, while lack of privacy and weak security are the main drawbacks.

The most apparent difference between these two window styles lies in the direction in which they open. Awning units have a sash that moves outward from the house, while a sash moves inward in hopper windows.

Basement window replacement cost depends on multiple factors, such as size, glazing, paintings, etc. Contact Ecoline if you want to get a more precise quote for your window project.
