Summer is here and the heat is sweltering in Greensboro, NC. As the mercury rises, so does your energy bill. It’s time to start thinking about energy efficient window replacements to help cut costs. You’ll also be helping out the environment, an added bonus! If you are like most people, you’re asking yourself, where do I start? How do I find a trustworthy window installer? Not to worry. If you follow a few simple tips, energy efficient window replacements will soon be saving you money.
Check the guarantees
Many companies will claim to have energy efficient window replacements for your house, but then they do not offer any solid evidence as to a guarantee on how you know the new windows are energy efficient. A trustworthy company will take a page out of local roofing company Triad Installation’s book and list directly on their webpage, Energy Star Approved. Energy Star is a program jointly run by the United States Department of Energy and the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, and is designed to help save money and keep the environment clean. In order for energy efficient replacement windows to earn Energy Star approval they must meet strict guidelines that have been set by the US Department of Energy and the EPA.
A great tip to keep in mind is that many roofing contractors also do new and replacement windows, so if you have had roofing work done in the past check with your Greensboro roofer and see if they can install your energy efficient window replacements, too. Word of mouth is also a fantastic way to find a reliable contractor. Take the time to check in with them, ask about their experience with the roofing contractor and if they were pleased with their energy efficient window installation.
Check those references!
Any reliable contractor that you contact in Greensboro, North Carolina should be willing to give you testimonials and a list of customers whom they have done work with as a reference. You never want to just take a company’s word for it when they’re working in your home. Check the references, and check with other places like the Better Business Bureau or Angie’s List.
No matter what kind of work you’re going to have done on your house this summer, whether it is installing energy efficient window replacements or adding a new roof, always do your foot work before you sign a contract, or give a company money. Check all of their certifications and accreditation and make sure that they offer a money back guarantee. A little bit of homework can prevent huge headaches with installing energy efficient window replacements. If, after you’ve done your homework you are ready to consider installing energy efficient window replacements, make sure you contact one of Greensboro’s reputable roofers, Triad Installations. They are ready to tell you all about the benefits of energy efficient window replacements, and offer free estimates!
