Start Spring Cleaning With New Windows

Spring is officially here and that means it is time to start thinking about spring cleaning! If you are having trouble deciding where to start consider starting with your windows! Replacing your windows is a painless process that will both increase your home’s energy efficiency as well as enhance it aesthetically.

Signs it is time for a window replacement include: noticeable air leakage, condensation between the panes of glass, peeling paint, or difficulty opening and closing the windows.


Energy Efficiency

While energy savings may be a big concern during the winter, having energy efficient windows can also save you money during the summer. A window’s energy efficiency level is measured using two different methods, the U-factor and the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHCG). The U-factor is most important during the winter and measures how well the window keeps heat from escaping. During the summer, however, you will want a window with a low SHCG. SHCG shows how well sun glare and heat are prevented from entering the house. Windows with a low SHGC will help keep your home cool, saving you money on your air conditioning bill.

Design & Style

The days of boring windows are behind us. Now, you can make a beautiful statement with your new windows. Some key elements to consider for your home are the operating style and the grille pattern of the panes. There are countless colors and wood grains available so you will have plenty of options to choose from when customizing your home!


It is important to find a good contractor to install your windows. Poor installation can lead to water or air leakage and will significantly decrease the value of your window replacement. Be smart and ask questions before the contractor begins work on your windows.
