We are all accustomed to frigid and harsh winters in the Kansas City area. This can take a toll on your body if you are outside, but you should be able to rely on your home to provide a warm escape from the whipping winds and bone-chilling cold. If you can’t rely on your home to keep you warm, it might be time to replace your windows. Windows are a huge factor in keeping your heat in and the cold out. It’s never too late to replace your windows, so let’s get started today!
Benefits to Window Replacement
It might sound intimidating to replace your windows, especially during the wintertime. However, let me assure you that Kryger Glass makes it as easy of a process as it can be. Since windows are made of glass, they offer an easy point for the temperature to enter and escape your home. This can harm your family during the extremes of the seasons, causing your family to be too hot or too cold. On top of the safety of your family, old windows can burn a hole in your wallet.
The constant change of the weather can have a harsh effect on your home and your energy bill. One of the primary protections your home has when it comes to keeping external temperatures out, is the windows. Standard single-pane windows fail to keep your home’s temperature control stable at your desired temperature. This means that your air conditioning and heating units constantly run to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home; driving up your energy bill year-round. The most effective way to combat the weather and a rising energy bill is by investing in thermal insulated windows.
Significant Benefits of Thermal Windows
- Lower your heating and cooling bills: About one-fifth of the energy lost in a well-insulated home occurs through the windows. This energy loss decreases if you replace old windows with thermal versions; keeping heating and cooling costs down.
- Enjoy a more comfortable interior: High heat transfer through the glass makes it uncomfortable to sit right by a single-pane window, especially on a cold winter night. Thermal windows keep drafts out for a more even, comfortable temperature throughout every room.
- Insulate against outside noise: Whether it’s the noisy neighbor kids, traffic, or construction, outdoor noise is unwelcome inside your home. The air space between panes in thermal windows insulates, not only against heat transfer, but noise as well so you can sleep or enjoy your favorite TV show with less interruption from outside.
- Reduce condensation: Like a cold glass of water, a single-pane window tends to collect condensation when there’s a significant temperature difference between the inside and outside. This is most likely to occur in the winter. Condensation causes beads of water to run down the glass and damage the sill. This is less likely to occur with double- and triple-pane thermal windows.
Are you Nervous to do a Window Replacement in the Winter?
It used to be advised not to replace windows during the wintertime due to the weather. However, due to new technology, now you can do so. If you’re curious about how it’s done, ask the professionals you’re choosing from what measures they take to keep your home warm. Removing and installing one window at a time will keep outdoor exposure to a minimum. Ask about using plastic floor-to-ceiling “walls” to limit cold airflow into the room for larger openings.
Depending on how many windows you are replacing and their size, the whole process could be done in as little as a few hours. If you have custom-sized windows, it might take longer to get your custom-built window in stock; depending on product availability.
