If you take a peak in the Old Farmer’s Almanac, you’ll find that winter weather is right around the corner. The snowiest period is predicted to be early December, with another set of snowstorms likely to arrive in late January. You’ll want to be warm and comfortable during these cold, snowy days. The question you have to ask yourself is are your windows up to the task?
Because we’re a South Shore, MA window and door company, we’re really familiar with the problems area residents tend to have with their windows. Some homes in this area are older homes – built thirty, fifty or even more years ago. The windows that were available then just aren’t as good as the windows we have now. And if your older home has had replacement windows installed in the past, the case may be that those replacement windows may be older technology that just can’t offer the same energy efficiency you can get today.
Top concerns are drafty windows, windows that allow moisture in the form of frost or condensation indoors, and windows that have cracks, chips or other damage. It’s important to know that your home’s windows have a role to play in keeping your family comfortable, and an even more important role in keeping your family safe. If you have family members who are older, very young, or who have health challenges, keeping their body temperature consistent is important. You want your windows to keep the cold breezes out!
If you know you need to upgrade your windows but don’t have the budget for replacement windows right now, don’t despair. Storm windows are a cost-effective way to protect your family and your home from winter’s wrath. Choose from interior storm windows and exterior storm windows. Not sure what you need? Give us a call.
