Double Hung Replacement Windows

Windows aren’t meant to last forever, so how do you know if they have gone bad and need to be replaced?  With sealed, double paned windows it can be rather easy to detect a faulty window. If windows look foggy or have moisture trapped between the two panes, you’ve got trouble! Another less obvious way is to put your hand up to the window and see if you feel hot or cold air coming in from the outside. If you do, changes are your windows are not operating efficiently and it’s costing you money.

New home windows from Trim A Seal can help maintain a constant temperature in your home by keeping what you want inside and everything else out. In order for windows to operate effectively you must have them well sealed with double or triple paned glass. Not only will the saving show on your energy bill, but you also retain your home’s value and add crib appeal if you’re looking to sell. We created a list of the top 3 reason to replace your windows in preparation for 2013. Check them out below:

  • Save money on energy bills. By using quality windows you can ensure that your home uses less energy while keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. After having new replacement windows installed by Trim-A-Seal, most customers experience a decrease in their monthly utility bills. When you add it up, the windows practically pay for themselves.
  • Old windows tend to be hazardous. Older windows could contain lead which is very dangerous to your health. Not only can you save money, you may be saving a life.
  • Older windows commonly are single paned, which do not reap the same rewards of their double and triple counterparts. By having multi-paned windows, you keep moisture locked out and the heat out. These windows help filter out noise using air or non toxic gases which improves the windows insulation.
