Winter has finally come to the Northeast, and there’s nothing worse in the cold weather than feeling drafts come into your home from windows that aren’t providing proper insulation. You need your windows to do their job, keeping out cold in the winter and heat in the summer.
Windows that are insulating your home will help you keep your energy bills down. Think of all the money you can save in heating and air conditioning costs by making an investment in windows that work for your home. Not only that, but you will reduce your carbon footprint on the world by saving the energy it would take to heat or cool your home if you had poor windows.
New windows can also help combat any noise issues you may have, as double or triple glass can insulate your home against noise from the outside.
There are a number of choices for windows, including double- or triple-glazed windows that have gases in between the panes that will help keep drafts out. You can also choose from a variety of frames, including aluminum, wood, steel, or composite.
In addition, you can add storm windows or weather stripping to your current window configuration, which will also offer increased insulation.
