Window Quick Tips

A considerable amount of heat transfers through windows. If you have single-pane windows, consider doing the following:

  • Tighten and weather-strip your old windows and then add storm windows.
  • Replace your old single-glazed windows. In colder climates “low-e” coatings on glass can help reduce heat loss through windows.
  • In hot climates, consider adding solar screening to west-facing windows that catch a lot of heat late in the day. Solar screening is sold at many home improvement stores.

    The federal energy tax credit expires in December. Now would be a good time to get answers to your questions about replacement windows and doors.

    More Window Tips:

    - Make sure to lock your windows when they are closed. Most locking mechanisms seal the window completely.

    - Newer windows can be double or even triple paned to reduce energy loss in the home.

    - Also, new windows are filled with argon gas between the panes which further improves energy efficiency.
