Do You Know How Windows Are Made?

Residential windows are essential for providing a breeze in the summertime and air circulation in the winter. In addition, large windows have the power to be the focal point of any room in your home. Although windows are a vital part of any household, many people don’t realize how they are made. Watch this video to find out!

This clip features an argon gas-filled, double-paned casement window. Workers cut the window pane from a huge piece of glass. A foam spacer between the two panes allows for the insertion of the argon gas. After the window’s frame is constructed through the fusion of specially-cut PVC, the sealed panes can be snapped into place. The completed window is then attached to the hinges that allow it to open and close easily.

At Window World, we take extra care to provide you with replacement windows of the highest quality. Schedule your window installation today by calling (321) 282-6200.

Tell-Tale Signs That It's Time for a Window Upgrade

When your windows begin to wear and decay, you may become used to the squeak the hinge makes or the extra effort it takes to open a window. Yet instead of dealing with faulty windows indefinitely, you can remedy the following common window problems with a low-maintenance window replacement:

  • Winter Wear

General wear to your home's windows can result in a loss of insulation. If you feel cool drafts during the winter, it may be time to upgrade your windows. An additional sign of poor window insulation is condensation forming on the insides of windows. Energy-efficient windows have a thicker coat of insulation, protecting you and your family from cold air while lowering your utility bills.

  • Remodeling

If you're remodeling an area of your home, consider replacing your windows as well. Windows can look old and worn after serving a home for years—updating your residential windows gives your home a fresh, modern look. At Window World, we have a variety of window styles to choose from, including double-hung windows and garden windows, so you can personalize your home to match your tastes.

  • Mechanical Problems

Over time, your window's hinges and mechanical parts can become rusted and worn. Rather than struggling every time you want to open or close your window, consider installing a replacement. Test your windows by tapping your window frame—if the wood easily shifts, you may need a full window replacement. In addition, if you have to prop your window open or struggle to close it, save yourself the pain of operating a dysfunctional window and replace it today!

If you live in central Florida, contact Window World by calling (321) 282-6200. One of our helpful window experts can analyze your situation and help you decide which replacement window is best for your home. 

 

3 Window Styles to Add a Fresh Face to Your Home's Interior and Exterior

If you’re preparing to replace the windows on your home, consider updating your home’s style as well. Think about incorporating one or more of the following window styles for a fresh new look:

 

casement

1.  Double-Hung Windows

A popular type of window common in residential areas is the double-hung style. Double-hung windows are ideal for giving your home a traditional look, as they slide open vertically. These windows are great for safely promoting air circulation in your home, as you have the choice of opening them from either the bottom or the top. Since double-hung windows are installed with two moveable sashes, be sure to talk to your window installation company about protecting them against cracks and chips.

 2.  Casement Windows

If you are installing windows for a large space in your home, consider casement windows. These windows maximize the surface area of the pane, creating a beautiful picture of your landscape that makes a great focal point for any room. As they provide more natural light during the day, casement windows are a good way to reduce your use of energy in the form of lighting. In addition, casement windows open outward, so you can create a feeling of expansive space within your home. 

 3.  Garden Windows

Are you looking for a way to make your home feel more natural? Three-dimensional garden windows create a sleek, elegant design for your home while incorporating the beauty of the outdoors. By installing a garden window above your kitchen sink or in your bedroom, you can assemble a display of flowers and plants that will thrive year-round. An open garden window on a summer day lets in a light breeze, which mingles with the scents of your thriving flowers and herbs.

Are you interested in installing one of the above windows in your home? Contact Window World by calling (321) 282-6200. Based out of Orlando, we are committed to providing you with the best-quality replacement windows.

Top Ways to Conserve Energy in Your Home

Saving energy is a universal concern, and doing it the right way will help you lower your monthly utility costs, reduce your home’s carbon footprint, and keep your home an inviting, comfortable place. Many energy-conscious upgrades like replacement windows can even help raise your home’s value or make you eligible for tax credits. To learn more about cutting your energy usage and making your home more efficient, check out the following tips:

Small Upgrades

  • You can easily begin a greener lifestyle by making small changes around the home. For example, incandescent light bulbs can be replaced with compact fluorescent lights (CFLs). These enjoy a longer life and also use a fraction of the energy that traditional bulbs do while offering clean, bright light for your home.
  • Save both energy and water by turning your water heater’s temperature down a couple of degrees. Strive to take shorter showers as well—even a few minutes less under the spray cuts down on your energy usage, because your water heater has less work to do after you’re done.

Big Changes

  • Invest in a programmable thermostat. This alone can dramatically improve how and when you use energy to heat and cool your home, because your system will work smarter and waste less energy than it would with a single set point thermostat.
  • Consider your home’s weatherization—drafts can account for a big chunk of energy loss. Upgrade your insulation to counteract solar heat gain in the summer and reduce winter heating bills.
  • Get replacement windows installed by a professional. Energy-efficient new windows coupled with the proper installation can eliminate drafts and add energy-efficient barriers where your old windows simply didn’t keep out the cold or allowed heat to intrude.

Signs that Double Hung Windows Might Be Right for Your Home

Double hung windows are the perfect addition to a home for a number of reasons. Whether you’re in the market for a fresh look and want to get rid of your old windows or are interested in becoming more energy-efficient while saying goodbye to winter drafts, consider these reasons why double hung replacement windows can be perfect for your house:

  • You Want Better Ease of Operation: As any homeowner with aging windows can tell you, opening and closing older frames can become a chore. Double hung windows are designed to be opened from both the top and bottom sashes, which offers versatility of use. Open both sashes when you want to let in a friendly breeze, or leave only the top one open to provide ventilation while maintaining safety for younger children and pets.
  • You Need to Save Energy: Today’s technology allows replacement windows to boost not only the value and appearance of your home, but its energy efficiency as well. By reducing heat transfer, new double hung windows preserve the climate inside your home. This means that your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard, resulting in lower utility costs.
  • You’d Like Better Home Comfort: Saving energy doesn’t have to come at the cost of your comfort. Double hung windows that offer plenty in terms of energy efficiency also provide extra insulation, which means no drafts or hot spots near windows.
  • You’re Concerned About the Effects of UV Rays: The sun emits ultraviolet radiation, which is not only harmful to you and your family, but can also damage the interior of your home over time. UV rays break down materials, causing fading of colors, brittleness and cracking in leather, and degradation of carpeting. Double hung replacement windows keep these detrimental rays from penetrating your home.

Questions to Ask Your Window Professional

When it comes to all things window-related, make sure that you get the opinion of a qualified window installer before making any decisions. Window installation professionals have tons of experience working with replacement windows, identifying problems with existing windows, and choosing products that provide homeowners with optimal comfort and energy savings. Here are a few questions to ask your window installer before window replacement begins in your home:

 

Window World Orlando - Windows

 “What if something happens to my windows?”

Replacement windows are a serious investment, so you should make sure that the replacement window installer you hire can back up the quality of the product and workmanship. Ask whether the installer offers a warranty or guarantee that protects you in case of a damaged or defective product. In addition, be sure to ask about manufacturer guarantees and whether or not this installer is factory-authorized to work with the windows.

“How long does window replacement take?”

Knowing how long your home will be window-less is very important. Typically, most homes have replacement windows installed in about a day, but some jobs may require more time. Only your window replacement company can give you an accurate measure of the installation process.

“Will these windows lower my energy costs?”

Depending on the types of windows you currently have, upgrading to new replacement windows may dramatically lower your home’s heating and cooling costs. This can help you to stay more comfortable throughout the year without having to crank up your furnace or air conditioner. If you’re looking for windows that will provide you with optimal energy savings, make sure you mention this fact to your window professional.
