Are You Throwing Money Out the Window?

Would you take $700.00 out of your bank and start throwing that cash out the window a bill at a time? It seems a little ridiculous right? Yet we do it all the time. The problem is that we aren't able to see the money going out our windows, but it’s happening. This is because it goes out in the form of lost heat, and winter is nearly upon us.

The equation for this is simple: lost heat equals higher energy bills. But, while the equation is simple, the amounts can vary greatly depending on many factors. We all know that heat loss costs us money. What we don't know is how much money it is costing us. So here are a few things to consider:

If you put your hand up to your windows in the winter and feel cold air, it is time to get replacement windows.
If you have broken windows, it is impossible that those windows are keeping all your expensive heat inside your home.
If you know that your windows are over 15 years old, you could benefit greatly from the energy efficiency that modern windows will bring to your home.

If your windows are ready for a replacement, the next question you should ask is, "Is it too late to get energy efficient windows installed?" And the answer is, "It is never too late to get energy efficient windows installed." In fact, right now is the best time to get new windows installed. If you wait till the middle of winter, you will have lost half a winter of heat and will have paid half a winter of higher energy bills.

So if you have had enough money thrown out of your windows, Pikes Peak Windows and Doors has a solution. All of our windows that we sell have modern technology that keeps the heat in, and the cold out.

Don't throw money away. It's such a waste. We have an idea that is so much more beneficial. Reach out to us today and start dreaming of what your home will look like with new windows and new technologies that will save you money on your energy bills, and bring life into the beauty of your home. Now is the perfect time to get energy-efficient windows installed. Don't wait for the cold to come. Make this winter the winter you start putting that money in your pocket and stop throwing money out your windows.

Do You Need New Windows?

These are the top five reasons it’s time to replace your windows:

Can You Feel a Draft?
Now that the weather is turning colder, are you finding that you can’t walk by a window without a draft causing you to shiver? You may need to replace them. Even the best windows can let a certain amount of air in, but you absolutely shouldn’t be able to notice it. Just like everything else, windows do wear out. The windows may be warped due to exposure, causing the frames to become loose and allowing air to get through.

Are Your Energy Costs Increasing?
Have you noticed a steady increase in the checks you are writing to the gas or electric company for your heating bill? This could be a sign that your windows are not energy efficient. Older style windows such as single pane styles or windows that are warped won’t block the cold or heat. Replacing them with new energy efficient windows will eventually pay for themselves in lower heating and cooling costs.

Do You Have Water Stains?
When buying older homes for their character, it is important to realize that older homes come with older windows. Over time, especially with older windows, the wood frames rot and warp from exposure to sun, rain, and fluctuating temperatures. This causes even the best wooden framed windows to rot and warp. If you find water stains on the inside, your windows are probably leaking, and there is a good chance that you should replace them.

Do You Have Condensation?
Single pane windows might have condensation, but that shouldn’t be the case for double or triple pane windows. If you are finding your windows are getting foggy in between the panes, this is a problem. It is likely that you have a seal failure and your windows are no longer effectively insulated and should be replaced.

Do Your Windows Get Stuck?

Do you struggle to open or shut your windows? This is a sign that they have warped over and are likely fitting too snug or too loose. If that is the case, those windows will also allow excess air in as well.
