Are Your Window Panes Single Panes of Glass?
Older conventional windows were made with single (very energy inefficient) panes of glass. Newer replacement windows are not only insulated but usually have two or three panes of glass filled with gasses that reduce radiant heat transfer, keeping you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Some types of energy efficient replacement windows also encourage (or discourage) the sun’s ultraviolet rays from entering your home. These are the same types of sun ray’s that can affect your health and discolor your wood floors and furniture. Husker Siding, Windows & Roofing recommends asking about which replacement windows for Omaha (brand, model and features) best match your home – to maximize your interior comfort all year and reduce your utility expense.
What to Consider When Replacing Conventional Windows!
Replacing your conventional windows entails much more than simply replacing the glass. You need to take a look at your window frames and weather stripping as both of these can adversely affect your carbon footprint, causing you to overpay for heating and cooling. Worn out or ripped weather stripping allows air to escape (or enter) your home, forcing your heating and cooling systems to work harder to maintain comfortable interior temperatures. Even if you have old metal window frames, these are not as technologically advanced or as efficient as newer frames. To maximize your upgrade efforts, you need to examine all the components of your Omaha windows.
Husker Siding, Windows and Roofing Tip: Wood frames should be avoided if your home experiences huge fluctuations in temperature. Wood laminate frames are more efficient at reducing expansion and contraction in wide variances of temperatures.
