Replace my old house windows with energy efficient windows
I have owned my home for over 20 years now. Over this period of time, I painted, replaced the floor tiles, and even replaced roof shingles. However, the one thing that I have yet to tackle, is our dilapidated aluminum windows. The biggest problem is that they are constantly sweating, or have condensation, thus, there is a considerable build up of mold on the frames and ledges. This situation is unsightly and the widows so uneffective, that replacement is my only option.
The options available in replacement windows can get overwhelming unless you determine exactly what your needs are. First and foremost, I want my new windows to be energy efficient. A big concern was that changing the windows would change the original character of our home. Just as importantly, we want a great value, and we want our window to last a long time.
Energy-efficient windows in my Greensboro NC home
Energy efficient windows prevent heat from entering your home in the summer, and trap heat inside in the winter. This works because of a coating of silver on the glass. This helps reflect UV light and prevents excess heat from entering the house, or heat inside the house from dissipating through the window. This can reliably maintain your home’s temperature at comfortable levels regardless of the time of year. A research done by Energy Star states that replacing normal windows with energy-efficient windows saves you around 40% of your normal energy costs per year.
Windows with low-e glass insulates the home. Imagine it to work like a thermos; they are actually double paned glass. In the summer months, only a little heat penetrates through the window, preventing it from affecting the lower temperature inside your home. In the cold months, the window retains heat from inside, maintaining the comfortable indoor temperature. An upgrade option is to have argon gas injected between the panes to give the window increased insulating properties. In addition, the vinyl window frame material also contributes to the insulating efficiency of a window. It is counterproductive to have the great technology of energy efficient windows, and then install them improperly.
