Harvey Slimline Window Ratings

In terms of ratings, the Harvey Slimline double hung in the standard low-e glass package (including argon fills) gets a .33 U-value (heat loss), .46 SHGC (heat gain coefficient), .55 VT (visible transmittance), and a 57 CR (condensation resistance)

A better glass package upgrade will generate a .29 U-value (heat loss), .29 SHGC (heat gain coefficient), .49 VT (visible transmittance), and a 57 CR (condensation resistance).

These are pretty mediocre numbers for a vinyl window, although for an entry level window, they aren't bad.

Harvey Slimline Warranty

Harvey offers a Lifetime Warranty that covers the extrusion, screens, and all of the components such as locks, balances, sash retainers, hardware, etc. The insulated glass unit carries a 20 year warranty. The warranty is transferrable to one subsequent owner, although the second owner's warranty has only a 20 year warranty period (instead of the lifetime) from the original date of manufacture.

In general, the warranty is pretty standard in the industry. Always read the latest warranty information for any window you are considering buying to double check no changes have been made to the warranty terms, etc.
