How to Find the Best Replacement Windows in New Hampshire
No one has ever said that they wanted to find the subpar-est replacement windows for their home, in New Hampshire or otherwise. Everyone’s looking for the best, but with so many claiming to be the best, where do you start?
Finding the best replacement windows involves a few different elements. First, you want to be sure that you have the right replacement window manufacturer. You want to be sure that your replacement windows are energy efficient. And finally, all of that is for naught if the window contractor installing the replacement windows isn’t the right company.
The Right Manufacturer
Quality window manufacturers produce quality replacement windows. This seems obvious, but if you’re not involved in the window industry, you may have to do some homework to find out who those quality manufacturers are. At Jancewicz & Son, we work with Marvin windows, a manufacturing company that has been creating beautiful, durable, made-to-order replacement windows for over 115 years. They’ve been pioneers when it comes to ultrex fiberglass windows, a material so tough that it’s used in bridge construction. They also make windows that have the classic look of wood with the reinforcement of that ultrex.
The Right Efficiency
One of the biggest reasons people search for replacement windows is a need for more insulation or energy efficiency from their windows. With the right replacement windows, your home can feel comfortable no matter what the temperature outside, and you can save on HVAC bills during the harsh winter and summer months. With the wrong replacement windows or old windows, drafts and high HVAC bills are bound to happen. So how do you spot an energy efficient replacement window?
For one thing, you can consider the materials. Fiberglass, for instance, is incredibly durable and energy efficient, allowing far less air leakage. You can also check the replacement window NFRC label, which rates the window on four different standards of energy efficiency. U-Factor and Air Leakage measure the amount of air that gets in or out through the window, while Visible Transmittance (VT) judges the amount of light that gets through, allowing you to rely less on your electric lighting during the day. Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) measures how well the window resists heat gain.
The Right Company
But the right window without the right contractor to install it doesn’t amount to much. When searching for a replacement contractor, you want to find someone with experience in your region, as well as solid reviews and testimonials from previous customers. If the company isn’t committed to their customers’ satisfaction, that will come through in their reviews.
