If you are considering energy efficient window replacements for your Greensboro home, pardon the pun, but your “window of time” will close soon. The weather is beginning to change, and the harsh reality of winter is just around the corner. The sooner you set about replacing those old and dilapidated windows, the sooner you can start saving money on your heating costs. You probably have already noticed a sizable increase in the total of your heating bill, and winter has not arrived yet.
Selecting quality replacement windows
When replacing your old windows, the first questions that come to mind will be, “How long will the project take, and what will it cost?” As a homeowner, part of the answer process is selecting a reputable, local contractor who can walk you through the process of choosing the best replacement windows for your budget.
The contractor that you decide on will help you determine the best solution for the heating and cooling of your home. There are many options to choose from, and a trustworthy contractor has the answers as to what will work best for you and for your budget.
Full window replacement
Full window replacement is also known in the trade as a “full frame tear out.” This is perhaps the most common option when replacing windows. The entire window is removed and replaced. The new energy efficient window is placed into the same position and the same opening as the old window. You will have more options, as your window installer can offer you double hung windows or new custom windows of an entirely different style from your old windows. This also presents the perfect opportunity for the window installation contractor to fix issues like water or air leakage that occurred around the old frame.
Options for custom windows
In addition to your new windows being energy efficient and cost efficient, there are countless styles, colors, and even interior wood grain patterns to update or accentuate the style of your home. Your contractor can guide you through cost efficient options that will allow you to find a variety of products that are energy efficient because they have built in features that meet or exceed the ENERGY STAR® ratings for energy performance. Be sure to consult with your contractor about ENERGY STAR® rated windows, especially new vinyl windows with enhanced computer design. Be sure to ask about any applicable federal tax credits. Monthly savings on heating and cooling costs, along with a federal tax credit, means that energy efficient window replacements will start paying off from the first day that you install them.
