With autumn here, it’s a good time to start thinking of replacement windows.
The weather here in Modesto is great these fall days. The sweltering days of summer are becoming a memory and the coldest days of winter are just a threat. But the heat of summer and the cold of winter are conditions you do want to be thinking about even as you enjoy autumn. You want to remember the cold drafts of winter and the high cooling bills from summer and take the time now to prepare to conquer them, perhaps by buying those replacement windows you’ve been dreaming about. (Remember, replacement windows are good for businesses as well as homes.)
Consumerreports.org notes that “new windows can make your home quieter, more attractive, and less drafty, and they don't need painting,” but reminds that there are many decisions to make when it comes to choosing replacement windows. Decisions like the type of window: double-hungs, casement, sliders, awning and hopper, just to name a few.
“On double-hungs the lower inside sash slides up and an upper outside sash slides down, improving air circulation and making full screens ideal. Cleaning is easy, because you can tilt the sash,” consumerreports.org says.
“Casements are hinged on one side, like a door, and a crank lets you open them outward, ideal for hard-to-reach areas such as over a kitchen sink. They’re usually more airtight than double-hung because the sash locks against the frame to close. When fully open, casements allow for good ventilation and easy cleaning,” consumerreports.org adds. “Sliders glide on a horizontal track. Awning windows are hinged at the top and open outward, while hopper-style windows are hinged at the bottom and open inward.”
Of course, the style of your home (or business) will help determine what window works best, as will your personal style and taste.
