With winter on its way, many people can’t help but think of keeping their home warm during the cold, snowy months – and the costs associated with it. As a result, people often tackle home improvement projects in the fall, as a means of getting their home ready for the chillier weather to come. If your Utica home has older windows, especially ones that are drafty, then you could be losing heat outdoors all winter long – and it’s likely your windows aren’t as efficient as they could be. If you think it might be time to consider replacing your old, drafty windows, you should consider giving New York Sash a call. We’re Central New York’s window experts, and we can help you get the replacement windows you need to improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.
Customers often ask us, “Are vinyl windows energy efficient?” And the simple answer to that is, “yes.”
First and foremost, many people lose heated (or cooled) air out of their homes because of the fact that older windows often have space around them, or glass that isn’t manufactured to Energy Star standards. But when you replace your windows with premium vinyl windows from New York Sash, you’ll be getting the very best windows available. New York Sash windows are designed to seal against air leakage, prevent heat loss and resist condensation. We offer the very best replacement vinyl windows in the industry. Window efficiency is measured by using the U-Factor. The lower the U-Factor, the better insulation against the elements. Energy Star standard for New York State is .30 – at New York Sash, we offer windows with a .26 and .20 U-Factor. These energy efficient windows make your Utica home more comfortable – and help you save on utility bills.
