Whether you live in an old or a new home, energy efficiency is important. One of the best ways to save energy in the home is to manage your seals, doors, windows, and insulation. This is especially important to think about for the winter months, before the cold really sets in. Read this blog to learn about window and door installation for energy efficiency.
First, you’ll need to assess your home in order to notice any airways, unsealed cracks, or faulty insulation. Do you feel a draft in a certain area of the home? Are your windows blowing in cold air? Does your front door, side door, slider door, or basement door let in air from the bottom and the sides? Are some windows and doors just not closing the same way they used to?
Think about all of the windows and doors in the home during your assessment, even the ones in the attic and the basement. When you call us, WORKS can come to assess your home and help you decide your next steps. When it comes down to it, most of our clients choose to install new doors and windows. Tight fitting doors and windows are an absolute must in the home.
We then work with our clients to help them pick out the best styles and materials to match the home. We help you plan for the size of the glass, the thickness, the shape of the windows, and all other installation details. WORKS contracts and has relationships with only the best manufacturers. We make sure that the windows and doors you purchase come with excellent guarantees and then we flash, insulate, and trim them with products that will last as long as the window or door.
As our clients find these issues in the home, they are often alarmed with how much energy they are unknowingly wasting. As you pay so much for the heating bill in the winter, it’s almost like throwing money out the window when you don’t have proper windows and doors installed.
There’s a lot to budget in 2018, but when you focus on small facets of the home like seals and installations, you can reduce your spending. When you ensure your house is completely sealed, and your windows and doors have been installed properly, you’ll soon notice that you won’t have to turn the heat up nearly as much as you’re used to in the home. When the weather gets nice again, you’ll enjoy keeping the cool air indoors more efficiently. Enjoy spending less on the heating bill this winter, and spend less on air conditioning expenses in the summer.
