Like many other things in your home, eventually, your windows will need to be replaced. Look for the following signs and issues to know when it’s time to consider the windows in your home.
According to the Department of Energy , heat gain and heat loss through windows are responsible for 25% – 30% of residential heating and cooling energy use. When your windows and doors are not insulating your home properly, it can significantly increase your energy costs and it may be time to consider a replacement.
Do you live in an area with a lot of traffic noise, or airplanes? New windows with dual pane insulating glass units reduce the level of sound infiltrating from the outside. For even more sound-reducing properties, laminated and acoustic glass drastically reduces unwanted noise from entering your home.
Do you love natural light but notice fading on your furniture and floors? New windows and doors with Low-E glass are designed to help block damaging ultraviolet (UV) light that can cause interior fading. Our standard ProSolar® Low-E glass deflects up to 72% of damaging UV light. You can also choose ProSolar® Shade Low-E glass that blocks up to 92% or laminated glass that blocks up to 99% UV light for greater fade protection.
