If you’ve been shopping for windows recently, you’ve likely come across the term “thermal replacement windows.” Unless you are a window expert, you are probably wondering what a thermal window is. The phrase “thermal windows” can refer to a historic type of window that was used in ancient Rome (also called Diocletian windows), but today, the phrase is more commonly used in reference to energy-efficient windows. Whether you are looking for Diocletian windows or energy-efficient windows, Quality Window & Door can help.
About Diocletian Windows
Diocletian windows are a type of arched windows that were commonly used in the public baths of ancient Rome. They fell out of usage after the fall of the Roman Empire but have started to regain some popularity today. Diocletian thermal windows are large semicircular windows that are broken into three window compartments. Although they can vary slightly in appearance, they generally look like this:
Today, these windows fall within the category of special shape windows or geometric windows for many window manufacturers. Diocletian windows can give your home a distinctive look that will be the envy of your neighborhood.

About Energy-Efficient Thermal Windows
Chances are, you are looking for energy-efficient thermal windows rather than the ancient Roman variety. Energy-efficient thermal windows are double or triple-paned and have features that are designed to improve the energy efficiency of your home or business. These windows are typically filled with an insulating gas such as argon or krypton—designed to slow the transfer of heat into or out of your home or business. This means lower heating and cooling costs! In fact, upgrading to energy-efficient thermal windows can help you reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 40 percent!
At Quality Window & Door, we carry a variety of energy-efficient thermal replacement windows from many leading window manufacturers. Whether you are looking for wood windows, vinyl windows, or composite windows, we have energy-efficient thermal windows that will meet any home’s unique design needs.
