Do You Feel the Chill?
Volume 72 | December 2018
Do You Feel the Chill?
Winter's chill made a later appearance this year. Hearkening in winter, Floridians experience a gentler winter start with a chill that rolls in beneath windows and doors. Floor tiles begin to feel like ice. We scurry to our closets to find our "winter coat," often a lined jacket with full sleeves. Jokes aside, when you feel the chill, your home's efficiency may be compromised and require you to needlessly spend more dollars to heat and cool your home.

The Culprit are those Drafty Windows and Doors 

Let's look at the facts to warming up our home interiors.
  • Drafty windows and doors can account for 10-25% of your heat loss.
  • Aluminum windows can cost an additional $540 annually to heat your home (as compared to vinyl windows).

Reconsider your Home's Energy Efficiency 

Here are some energy tips for windows and doors from the U.S. Department of Energy:

  • It might be more cost-effective to replace inefficient windows than to try and improve their energy efficiency.
  • Look for ENERGY STAR® labeled windows. All custom windows at Majors Home Improvement exceed the ENERGY STAR® requirements.
  • Consider Low-E window coatings -microscopically thin, virtually invisible metal or metallic oxide layers deposited directly on the surface of glass - control heat transfer through windows with insulated glazing. 
  • Seek a solid constructed window frame. All windows at Majors Home Improvement are fusion welded with a multi-chambered vinyl main frame and sash. These features will maximize your window's efficiency.

Google 5-Star Customer Review:
"Purchased all new windows for home - we were pleased with entire process and on installation day the 3 installers were courteous and efficient, and did a great job cleaning up all debris both inside of the home and out. As a realtor, I would not hesitate to recommend to clients and others - comes with Lifetime Limited Warranty as well."

Got a Question? Ask Mike!
Question:  Should I install windows during the winter months?   - J. Stewart
 
Mike's Reply: Thank you for your question. Many homeowners think it is not a good idea to install new windows during cold weather. Actually, there are no issues as windows are built from the manufacturer with allowances for thermal expansion. During installation, the caulk will set properly since it needs air to "cure" and temperature is not a factor. Last, our installers are respectful of your property to keep it as warm as possible. They achieve this by not leaving your front door open. Also, our installers prep the old window first and then remove the old window as quickly as possible, so the window is only "open" for a short amount of time. Most important, homeowners should not delay until spring. New, energy efficient windows will reduce costs, plus keep your home warmer.
