How To Improve Comfort in Your Home

Vinyl window replacement can help improve the comfort of your home.  Sometimes you can make some changes that might be helpful as well. Here are a few tips; In winter, poor quality windows, and those that aren’t well insulated, can create drafts in the home. Poor quality, inefficient windows create the feeling of draft due to the physics of changing air temperatures – warm air near a cold pane of glass will quickly cool, fall, and create a cycle of moving air. Windows and doors with lower U-factor ratings will lessen this effect, reduce the feeling of draft, and lower heating bills.

Improving the insulation around doors and windows with weather-stripping may also reduce drafts by reducing air flow.In summer, it can be difficult to adequately and efficiently cool a room with poor window quality because the sun is able to directly influence and heat the air temperature of the room. Windows with lower Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) will lessen this effect and improve the ability to efficiently keep a room cool — lowering cooling bills and reducing frequent temperature fluctuations.
