Folsom Replacement Window Contractor
Replacing your Folsom windows could bring huge benefits that far outweigh the cost of the windows and installation. Windows are one of the biggest factors in heat exchange between the inside of your Folsom area home and the air outside. New windows that reduce the exchange of heat from the exterior to the interior are both a very smart remodeling decision and, for that reason, the most popular home improvement project in the U.S. today. Old, inefficient windows mean that you are wasting natural resources and spending money for heating and cooling inside your home that is actually going right out the windows.
When you reduce the amount of energy needed to heat and cool your home, you save money and you reduce your demand for electricity, natural gas, heating oil, or whatever means you use. Another important fact about window replacement is that installing new windows will also increase the value of your home by as much as 90% of the cost for the windows.
The best Folsom replacement windows to prevent transfer of heat through windows are wood, vinyl, fiberglass and foam. Metal frames, such as aluminum, are the worst because they don't have insulating properties. Glass, itself, also conducts a lot of heat. But there are ways to make windows more efficient. Double-pane windows have a space between the panes of glass. This provides insulation when the air between the panes absorbs some of the heat and some of the cooler air and stays at a temperature between the two extremes. This will make your windows more efficient. If you buy windows that have a gas in the space between the panes, such as argon, the window will be twice as efficient as a plain double-pane window. If the gas used is Krypton, instead of Argon, the window becomes another 50% more efficient. Call Windows Plus for your next window replacement project today!
