Windows: Your View to a Thrill

You are to be commended if you’re considering upgrading the windows in your Orange County home with new replacement windows. The choice of what type of window you upgrade to will not only create a better, healthier standard of living for you, providing you with windows that  are no doubt sturdier than what you presently have, and in the long run it can mean an increase in the energy efficiency for your house.

Thing is, what exactly should you do? Repair what you have, or replace with vinyl windows? Learn your options, relative cost and effectiveness of repairs, and how to judge whether a window should be saved or thrown away.

Whether or not this is a step you can realize with your vinyl window upgrade is a decision for you and the professionals at California Window and Solar.

The truth is, single-pane windows often leave rooms in Orange County, CA feeling chilly and dry in cold weather and overheated in warm, sunny weather. Vinyl windows with double-pane glass can greatly improve the comfort of your home. They can block much of the heat of direct sunlight but still allow the light to come through (less need for shades). They’ll reduce cold drafts and the chill of cold glass. And they’ll reduce condensation so you can keep the indoor humidity at a higher, more comfortable level in colder weather.

A Critical Eye

You don’t have to be an installation technician to understand the condition of your windows. Some things are just common sense. For example, the window should open and close easily. The panes of glass obviously should not be cracked or warped there should not be condensation between the panes. And if you are feeling air flow, that is a dead give-away.

One Step (and Window) at a Time

The qualified technicians at California Window and Solar have your best interests in mind. Our advice: Balance your home’s appearance with your budget. Even if you try for a close match, new windows Long Beach, CA will probably look a bit different from the old. And even the glass itself (we recommend the low-E) usually looks somewhat different from clear glass. So replacing one or two in conspicuous areas may look bad. One good strategy is to replace all the windows on one side (or one level if you have a two-story house) to retain a consistent appearance. Often the windows on one side of a house deteriorate much faster than the others.
