Preparing your home for the Winter Season

Winter 2021 is predicted to be among one of the coldest winters in a long time. Preparing your home for this harsh winter is of the utmost importance. One of the worst ways to lose money and heat this winter is by not replacing your old drafty windows with new energy efficient windows. 
Old glass windows can lose up to 10 times more heat than an insulated window which will then increase your energy consumption due to your heating system over compensating. The way to avoid this issue is to shop for replacement windows that are built for your specific climate. In the northeast we have a wide range of temperatures so you want to shop for replacement windows that will work for your home throughout all of the seasons. 


Start by inspecting…

Doing a walk through your home and taking note which windows have the biggest leaks, rots, broken glass, and broken seals will help you determine which windows are of the utmost importance of replacing. By consulting with a professional company like Energy Windows, Doors & More it will help you determine what makes the most sense for your home. If replacing in stages makes more sense we can explore that option with you. Having various payment options allows our homeowners the flexibility of making a decision of whether they would like to break their project up into stages or replace all of the windows that need replacing in the home at one time. 


Explore different Glass options

At Energy Windows, Doors and More we only offer energy star rated products. We offer glass options from double strength glass all the way to triple pane glass. When shopping for windows you will want to make sure the glass has a layer of Argon Gas or Krypton gas in between both panes to maximize energy efficiency. The goal is to replace your old windows with higher performing windows  which is why it makes sense to explore all of your different glass options. Nowadays, we find most homeowners want to explore the triple pane glass option because why not be as energy efficient as possible and save the most amount of money this winter?
