We are finally nearing the end of the winter season and heading into spring and as the weather warms up, our homes start to open up for the season. In the spring, windows go from retaining heat to retaining air conditioning or opening smoothly to allow air to circulate in and out of a home. Windows that are old or not properly sealed allow for too much air exchange between the outside air and the home which can raise energy costs for heating and cooling. Green T Windows (http://greentwindows.com/
) provides vinyl replacement windows that form an excellent seal to retain heating and air conditioning to reduce energy costs. Their professional technicians can install a variety of different styles of windows as well as doors and siding to improve the look and efficiency of your home.
Green T Windows carries and installs 360 Vinyl Replacement Windows (http://greentwindows.com/window-series/
). These windows are made from 100% virgin vinyl and are available in several styles including casement, double-hung, garden, sliders, and picture among others. The vinyl frames are durable, easy to operate, and form a tight seal to help keep heating and cooling energy from escaping. Each of their replacement windows is Energy Star qualified and meets the guidelines of the Illinois Energy Efficient Building Act. They can also customize windows for unique applications, making the glass and frames any size with the frames available in multiple colors.
The 360 Vinyl Replacement Windows from Green T Windows benefit homes in several ways. One benefit is that new windows increase the value of a home (http://greentwindows.com/window-replacement-cost-vs-value...
). Window replacement jobs can become costly depending on the number of windows being replaced but by adding value to a home, new windows can have a great return on investment. Another benefit of these replacement windows is that they save money by lowering energy costs which they do in several ways. One way is by forming a better seal to reduce loss of energy through leakage. Leaky windows allow heat to escape and in the spring and summer, they can even cause a loss of air conditioning, keeping these units running more than necessary. The vinyl replacement windows form a better seal than frames made from other materials and new windows refresh worn or improper seals. These new frames will help retain cooling from the air conditioner this summer, leading to noticeably lower energy bills.
The other way in which Green T’s replacement vinyl windows save homeowners money is with Low-E glass and gas insulators. The Low-E glass is designed to help control cooling loss which is crucial in the spring and summer months. This glass strips light waves from the sun of its heat, allowing just the natural light to pass through without increasing the inside temperature. This will keep the inside temperature of the home more stable so that the air conditioner will not have to run as much. Using gas insulation in windows also helps control the temperature and heat loss. Windows with gas insulation slow heat transfer because gas is denser than air, causing heat to move much slower through it. Both Low-E glass and gas insulated glass help retain energy and ultimately lead to lower heating and cooling costs.
Replace your windows this spring with 360 Vinyl Replacement Windows from Green T. Your home will not only be more energy efficient to save on air conditioning costs for the season, but the new windows will also increase the home’s value. The moderate weather makes spring a great time to replace your windows before the heat sets in.
