Lowes Replacement Windows
If your home’s windows are more than 15 years old, they probably aren’t as efficient as they were when they were new. As a window wears over time, it loses its ability to seal out exterior air and seal in your heat or air conditioning. Its frame can also become warped or bowed due to extreme heat or moisture. A wooden window may experience rot or termite damage over time, which can lead to leaks and a lower energy efficiency.
If your home’s windows simply look worn, are outdated, or don’t fit the style you’re trying to achieve, you may also consider replacement windows.
Choosing a Window Style
Perhaps the hardest part of replacing your windows is choosing the style of window you’re going to have next. You can make things easy and replace a casement window with a casement window or a double-hung window with a double-hung window, or you can opt for a completely new design. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we often urge our customers to play around with window options and create a fresh, new look.
With replacement windows, you’ll also have the option to choose the number of panes. While single-pane windows were a popular choice for years, homeowners realized that they didn’t insulate as well as double-pane or triple-pane windows. Which you choose depends on your preference and your budget.
Today’s windows are more energy efficient than ever before and can help you not only reduce your carbon footprint, but also help you save on your energy bills. When your windows are able to form a tight seal that keeps your heat and air conditioning in and the outside air out, you’ll notice that your HVAC unit won’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable.
