Keeping it Cool (or hot)

When it comes to keeping the cool air inside your Santa Rosa home, having good windows is paramount. You don’t have to be a professional builder to understand your house will lose its cool air (or heat for that matter) due to poor insulation. What constitutes good installation? Several factors come into play, like professional installation and energy-efficient glazing.

Installing quality new or replacement windows will not only contribute to reducing your energy bills, but will also add to your home’s value. Lesser variables, like noise reduction and protection against the elements (i.e. the sun) are worth considering also. You want to protect your furniture and other belongings from UV rays!

Give me a Double (or a Triple)

So what exactly do we mean by double or triple panes? In layman’s terms, double-pane windows have two sheets of glass with a gap in between the panes, which creates an insulating barrier to keep the cool air inside. The difference between double and triple-pane windows is, you guessed it, there are three sheets of glass in the triple versions. It might seem like your insulation will increase if you have triple as opposed to double panes of glass, and there is some truth to that. But room placement, number of windows and amount of sunlight entering the room can impact insulation to a degree as well. Double or triple-pane windows should last for 20 years or more, so it is a worthwhile investment.
