Reason for replacement windows and doors
1. Better Energy Efficiency
In recent years, the industry has developed new materials and technologies that enhance the energy efficiency of our window and door products. When properly installed, these products can increase your home’s insulation capacity by appreciable amounts. This means your home will use much less energy than it would need when operating with inferior window and door products.
Vinyl window frames are quite common because they can be fabricated with multiple air chambers. These chambers help buffer against unwanted heat transfer. Glass is coated with a thin layer of low-E surfacing. This technology reduces more than 80% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays from passing through your windows without filtering the natural sunlight from brightening your home. We’ve heard it said that low-E coating is a lot like sunscreen for your window. It reflects away unwanted solar heat and protects your carpets and furniture from UV damage.
Another benefit to installing replacement windows and doors is that you are helping to protect the earth’s environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
2. Save Up on Utility Bills
By saving all that energy, you will immediately notice an impact on your utility bills. Energy costs can go down by as much as 30% when the whole house is refitted with new energy-efficient windows and doors. These savings occur because the heating and cooling system will not need to turn on as often to maintain the internal temperature of your home. As an added benefit, you will decrease the workload on your heating and cooling system by installing replacement windows and doors in your home. This will reduce your long-term maintenance requirements to keep unit running properly.
3. Windows Safety and Security Enhancements
Cougar Windows & Doors takes the safety and security of your home and family seriously. We only work with window and door manufacturers that are equally concerned about these priorities. We ensure that all lock systems meet or exceed forced entry testing standards. At the same time, we evaluate window safety and security by examining the product materials, build quality, durability, hardware, and overall ease of use.
Window locks and latches that are not user-friendly are a safety concern. In an emergency such as a house fire, a person needs to be able to quickly unlock and open a window without needing to stop and study the hardware to know how to open it. It needs to be intuitive and obvious how to use it from the inside. Incidentally, these criteria also make everyday use of the window more enjoyable.
For additional security, windows can be optionally upgraded with laminate technology. Glass that is interlaid with laminate prevents a would-be intruder from gaining access to your home by simply smashing a window. It does this by holding the shattered glass together in the window frame. Even though the window is broken and will need to be replaced, it maintains its form and fit the window, creating a barrier to entry.
