Crucial Things You Must Know about Windows

Poorly installed windows and doors are responsible for more than 30% of the average household’s energy bills. It’s pretty obvious that you need to keep your doors and windows in good condition if you want to save money on your energy costs. However, before you decide to take any sort of action about your windows and doors, take your time to learn more about them.

  • Double-pane windows can reduce the noise coming from outside. For the best results, consider using windows that feature at least one inch of air (or argon) in between the panes.
  • Skylights provide 25 percent more sunlight than vertical windows.
  • Wood is a great material for window frames. However, it requires maintenance and it’s subjected to contracting and swelling.
  • Vinyl is a great alternative to wood. It offers good insulation and noise reduction. Additionally, they are highly affordable. The only problem is that their color may fade over time.
  • Low-emissivity glass has a thin metallic coating that reflects heat back to its source. This means that they keep heat outside during hot summer days and inside the house during winter.
  • All windows can be repaired. If your glass has chips or cracks in it, then you should call a glass repair service provider.
