Placing New Windows in Your Home Can Help Beat the Summer Heat and Winter Chill

We’re more than halfway through another Minneapolis summer, which means the A/C has probably already been running overtime at your house. However, if you noticed that the air conditioning unit is not working like it once was, it could be that your unit is old and needs to be replaced.  But if you’re confident your air conditioner is working properly, what could the problem be? It could  be the windows in your home.

If your windows are old – especially if they are wood – they probably need to be replaced.  As wood windows (as well as older vinyl and other window frame types) age, they deteriorate and/or don’t fit well in their openings.  Seals also fail, and that means air leaks.  If your old windows aren’t working the way that they should be, and this could be the source of the problem you’re having heating or cooling your home.

If your old windows are leaking air, that means you’re paying to heat or cool the outside air around your house – it’s time to get your windows replaced. Here are some of the benefits that come from having your windows replaced by a professional in the MN replacement window field.

  • By replacing the windows, you’re able to improve the comfort inside your home. This includes in the summer, as well as the winter. You’re able to lower your energy costs by around 25%.
  • When you choose to work with us here at Window Outfitters, you get the best installation and quality windows around. You’re able to get high quality windows, installed according to the manufacturer’s specifications, so you can maximize on the money and benefit savings.
  • Noise is a common thing come summer time, and newer windows can reduce the amount of noise that you hear inside your home.  You’ll find that indoors it is much quieter and relaxing than it was before. No more listening to the lawn mowers of the neighborhood or nearby summer festivities and kids at play.
  • When you choose windows that have a low-e coating on them to reflect the solar heat, this helps to keep the house cool in the summer time. During the winter, this same coating reflects the ambient heat back into the interior of the house – you can cut down on the amount of heat that is lost through the windows.

Putting replacement windows throughout your home can help you increase the comfort of your home and save money at the same time.   Now is the time to replace those old, drafty windows and get new ones that are able to provide the maximum in benefits – cut down on your cooling expenses for the remainder of this hot-weather season, and be prepared when Old Man Winter comes howling through the Twin Cities again.
