Is it Time?

Is it time to seriously consider replacing your windows and doors? Do you feel drafts when you pass by a window or door? Is it cooler near the windows, than on the other side of the room? 

Older single-pane windows are not energy efficient. They do not hold in heat or cold and they let an a large amount of outdoor air into the interior of your home. The U.S. Department of Energy warrants that 40% of annual heating and cooling bills can be affected by windows. Double-pane vinyl replacement windows are much more energy efficient and can save hundreds of dollars each year in energy costs.

 Older doors can leak cold air and can cause energy loss and uneven heating, which can also increase energy bills. Older doors made of wood can rot, crack and bow which can not only cause air leaks but can compromise the security of the door and a persons house. Replacement doors will seal better and prevent air leaks. Many utility companies offer rebates and energy incentives to customers who replace old inefficient windows and doors with energy efficient vinyl replacement windows and new doors.

 Replacement Windows and Doors Mean a More Comfortable Home

Old single pane windows allow a lot of air leaks and can be chilly and uncomfortable to sit by in the winter. Not only that but the air leaks from old windows can cause the temperature in your home to be uneven, the air is cold by the window and warm away from it. Vinyl replacement windows that have two panes of glass keep the temperature in your home even, and keeps out drafts.

Old doors can do the same thing. If the door has warped or bowed or the weather stripping worn away, they can leak air which can flow into the rest of the house and cause uneven temperature. Replacement doors will solve the problem of a drafty entrance.
