Best Windows for a Home?
If you are interested in finding the best windows for your Lakeland house, then knowing a little bit about heat transfer and R-values is a must. Don't worry though, it is simple and straightforward to explain.
Heat transfer and R-value is all about insulation. Heat transfer refers to how much heat can pass through a barrier like bricks, or insulation or windows. For instance, a Styrofoam cup has less heat transfer than a paper cup and you can feel that when you fill it with coffee and grab it right away.
R-values are simply the number given to a product to tell you how good it is at stopping heat transfer. The higher the number the better it is.
Why is this important? When looking at replacement windows for your home it is good to get a window with the highest R-value you can afford because this will save you money on heating and cooling your home. Of course, there are other considerations too, like the style, how much ventilation a room needs etc. However, upgrading your windows to ones with higher R-values will, over time, produce a return on your investment.
When Should You Replace Your Windows
Some of these are cases where a window repair would also be an option. However, if you are going to spend money on your windows and you can get ones with a higher R-value, then it is the best time to invest in your future.
There is a Draft:
If there is a draft or a breeze then your heating system is working extra hard to compensate. If you are unsure if there is a draft, then light a candle and slowly move it around the closed window. A flickering flame will indicate a draft.
If there is a crack in the frame, then the weatherproofing ability of the window has been compromised.
A Bad Storm:
Has a bad storm broken one or more window in your Lakeland home? This is the perfect opportunity to plan a remodeling project with your windows.
If you have double paned glass and you are seeing fog appear between the two pieces of glass, then it is time to change. Fog in this case means that the seal that protects the insulation property of the glass has been broken.
