New windows save you money!
Old windows don’t provide proper insulation. They let in extensive amounts of cold air in the winter. Therefore, if you have single-pane windows, or even double-panes that have faulty insulation around the framing, warm air is leaking out of your home. With Connecticut winter temperatures regularly falling below freezing, you can imagine how hard your furnace works. Homes with old windows typically have energy bills that are 25% more than an average bill. Our customers that replace single-pane windows save up to $400 a year in heating costs!
The most important factors to consider when picking out windows to optimize energy efficiency are the U-factor and the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). The U-Factor measures the window insulation. It ranges from 0.20 to 1.20, and the lower the number the better! In addition, the SHGC measures the solar radiation that can pass through a window. In colder climates, such as New England, a range of 0.30 to 0.60 is ideal being that the solar heat gained from the windows can aid in warming the home.

Window Replacement CT – How to Know If You Need Replacement Windows
Are your windows hard to open and close?
One of the main signs that it is time to replace your windows is when they start to become hard to open and shut. Warped window frames, buildup of dirt and dust, and being painted shut can all cause difficulty opening and closing the windows. Interestingly, in extreme cases, sometimes the foundation of a home shifts and the window frame no longer fits in place properly.
Can you feel a draft?
Leaks and drafty air are all clear cut signs you’re due for new windows. We often find these occur when the window seals have worn out. In addition to keeping water and air out, windows should also be keeping your home quiet. Therefore, if you start to clearly hear the noise and traffic outside your home, it’s time for an upgrade. New windows are designed to reduce transfer and keep your home quiet from outdoor disturbance.
Are your windows single pane?
Lastly, check to make sure your windows are not single pane. Single pane windows are common in older properties, but they do not do a very good job at standing up to winter weather. If you have these outdated windows, it’s time for an upgrade!
Fall is an excellent time to have new windows installed! With winter weather approaching, it’s the right time to address any window issues. Importantly, fall is still relatively temperate with little storm concern, and it gives you plenty of time to assess what exactly needs to be done to keep your warm air inside where it belongs during cold January evenings.
Furthermore, we often find that window companies offer great deals and financing in fall months due to a decline of business in the winter. These special fall deals can save our customer hundreds of dollars! Additionally, new windows add a beautiful aesthetic to your home for hosting holiday parties and for viewing the amazing New England fall foliage right from your home.
