The Most Common Window Replacement Questions:
Can I Choose Windows That are Different Than My Current Windows?
Yes, you can choose any type of window you like. The benefit of purchasing new replacement windows is that you can choose whatever you like once your old windows are removed. Not only can you choose the window style, but you can also change it from one that goes up-and-down to a window that slides side-to-side. Also, may even be able to make the existing window opening bigger, so you can enjoy more of an outside view.
When Is It Time To Replace Windows?
The best answer to this question is if it seems hot when you stand beside the window during the summer months or feels cold during the winter, it is most likely time to replace your windows. While that is a basic answer, here are a couple of factors that may also mean window replacement is necessary.
• Windows are older than 15 years.
• The glass gets fogged or moisture is forming in between the glass.
• The frame is falling apart or rotting.
• Windows are jammed or stuck shut.
• The balancers make noise going up and down or will not hold the window up.
• You feel a draft coming in around the sides of the window.
What Is LOW E?
The metallic coating that is used in the inside of the glass of the window is called Low E. Low E keeps the heat out and away from the window while keeping the home cooler. It is the part of the window that does most of the work when it comes to energy-efficiency. The greater the Low E rating, the far better it will be at hindering the heat. Additionally, to Low E, there are other components of the window that assist with increasing its efficiency such as foam filled frames, Argon gas and non-conductive spacers between the glass.
