For California homeowners who are looking to button-up their home envelopes, windows and doors are two of the first things that come to mind. While there are many other elements that can factor into whether or not a home is operating at peak performance, it’s true that windows and doors can allow conditioned air to escape and unconditioned air to enter.
What’s the best way to deal with inefficient windows and doors? Weatherize, air seal or replace them.
Homes in the Greater Los Angeles Area that were built more than 20 years ago tend to feature windows and doors that are less than efficient, which means homeowners living in these buildings are spending more money each month on energy bills than they should be. Often, cracks and gaps exist, which allow airflow into and out of the home—both of which are unwanted in any circumstances outside of cracking a window for some fresh air.
Replacing your windows and doors is a great way to move in the direction of energy efficiency, and it doesn’t have to be as costly as you might think.
At So Cal Remodeling, we believe that improving home performance means taking into consideration every element that affects it. Windows and doors are no exceptions to the rules, which is why we offer the finest quality products on the market. Depending upon the scope of the project, newly installed windows and doors may be eligible for upgrades through Energy Upgrade CA. We’ll help you to get the savings you deserve, while also prescribing tailored advice on how to improve energy efficiency in your home.
