Living in the northern states of the United States I have become very accustomed to living with only a few warm summer months out of the year. Although it might be nice to have a few more warm summer months added to each year, it is also nice to enjoy the beauty of the winter months.
The main role of the windows in a home is the circulation of air. Proper placement of the windows will remove the excess heat inside the home, thereby reducing the need of extra air conditioning. This will help you to save your electricity bills. Moreover, proper flow of fresh air is necessary for good health. Hence, when planning a window replacement, you should make sure that the window placement allows free flow of fresh air into the room along with pushing the stale air out.
What’s the energy rating on your current windows? How much solar heat gain are they letting through? Chances are if you do not know the answers to these questions, you could be letting your money – quite literally – float out the window.
Because it does not rot or biologically degradable, ideal for UPVC window and door applications. Resistance to weathering, with low maintenance requirements, and again it will be difficult to use. Of course, old-style aluminum frame might be better in real estate.
For example, there were some replacement window companies that built a lot of their business from cold calling people on the phone. When the do not call lists came out, it took most of the wind out of their sails.
So now let’s assume that the salesman is not honest. When you add on Argon gas and a single layer of Low E to meet the energy codes the price jumps to a little over $300. When the sales person finds that your install is not a “basic install” your price will generally jump another $50-$75 which brings your total to a little under $400. So a $200 window really cost a little under $400.
In short, energy efficient windows really do offer a myriad of benefits. From energy savings to increased interior comfort, they are a great way to add to the overall enjoyment you receive from your home.
