Have you considered a window replacement and installation project for your home? You may not be aware of it or even suspect it at all, but your replacement windows may be making your home consume more power than it should. Such wasted energy can run to hundreds and even thousands of dollars each year in electric bills. According to several research studies, faulty windows and those with poor insulation can make your home consume up to 35% more power than it should.
This is likely the case with single pane windows that are inefficient at keeping indoor heat inside the home. Houses with aluminum windows fare even worse in terms of energy efficiency. Along with its susceptibility to corrosion when exposed to the elements, aluminum is a poor window frame choice if you are looking to cut down on power consumption. Does this mean that you should consider a window replacement and installation project if you have aluminum windows?
Having aluminum window frames gives you a compelling reason to replace it with energy efficient windows. However, there are other good reasons why you should consider having your energy efficient replacement windows. Among these reasons include wood windows that no longer open and close properly, rainwater or moisture may be seeping through gaps and you may see telltale signs of rotting frame. If left unchecked, these casement windows issues may become an even bigger problem, particularly my window frames are rotting that can migrate to the main house frame.
