The Importance Of Replacing Your Windows Before The Cold Weather Arrives.

September 23, 2021

Having operable windows 

A problem we always tend to notice when meeting with homeowners with their old drafty windows is the windows do not operate properly. This poses a huge issue when keeping their home warm in the winter. If you have a window lock that is not engaged and your top sash is drooping down all of your heat could potentially be escaping out of that window. This is why having your windows tightly sealed is of the upmost importance. At Energy Windows, Doors and more our windows come standard with weatherstripping and interlocks on each sash to ensure a tight seal. 

Better Insulate your home

New energy efficient windows will substantially improve your homes insulation. Multiple layers of glass added with Argon and Krypton gas fills between each layer will help to reduce the transfer of heat from inside your home to the outside of your home. Air leakage rating is definitely something you want to take into consideration when shopping for new replacement windows. Every residence experiences some level of air infiltration as a result of air pressure differences between the inside and outside of the home. Keeping air leakage to a minimum is essential for attaining energy efficiency. Structurally strong, tight windows ensure lower heating bills and fewer drafts. At Energy Windows Doors & More most of the windows we offer come with a .02 air leakage rating which is amongst the highest in the industry. 

No more broken seals.

No one enjoys not being able to see through their windows due to condensation building up between their window panes. Broken seals are definitely something you want to avoid in your home throughout the winter season. Not only does this disrupt your sight line but it also decreases your thermal efficiency drastically. At Energy Windows, Doors & More we use a warm edge intercept spacer which features a unique one-piece stainless steel, U-channel design that creates an effective thermal barrier to help reduce conducted heat loss through the window. This one-piece design makes intercept spacers stronger and better at retaining insulating gas than conventional designs. We like our customers to do their shopping before they have us come to their home so they can understand the value in the products we provide and compare them to other products out there.

So do your shopping and make sure to call 1-484-645-6331 before that cold air arrives so we can keep your home well insulated this winter season!
