• A Basic Guide to Caring for Vinyl Replacement Windows

    One of the best things about vinyl windows is the minimal amount of upkeep they require. Very little work has to be done in order to keep your vinyl windows looking great year round. But there are a few things that you can do to make sure that they continue to look their best.

    The Advantages of Vinyl

    Vinyl windows don’t look drastically different than traditional wood windows, and in addition to being more affordable, vinyl is a very durable material . Vinyl is a poor conductor, which makes it great for insulation—so you can expect to save money on your heating and cooling costs during muggy Orlando summers. If your window gets scratched or nicked, it will be very difficult to see because vinyl window frames are colored all the way through, not painted.

    Cleaning Your Vinyl Windows

    Cleaning your vinyl windows is very easy. To clean your vinyl replacement windows , simply use household cleaners like dish soap or bleach with water (we recommend 1 part bleach to 4 parts water, or 1 part dish soap to 10 parts water). Wiping your windows down with a mop will help keep them nice and clean. If you have access to a power washer, using either of these solutions on the “low” setting will be effective as well. Cleaning your replacement vinyl windows takes very little time and money, and the results will be stunning every time!

  • Understanding the Key Differences Between Single- and Double-Pane Replacement Windows

    The number of panes, or sheets of window glass, in your replacement windows can make a huge difference in your energy savings. Here are three differences between single-pane and double-pane windows.

    1.      Replacement Window Cost

    What you will notice right away is that single-pane windows are less expensive than double-pane windows (prices depend on what models you are comparing). This is for a very good reason: double-pane windows are designed to be much better insulators . In addition to having low-E coatings which prevent heat from escaping or entering your vinyl windows, many double-pane windows are also filled with argon, a safe ‘noble gas’ which further insulates your home and prevents heat transfer.

    2.      Energy Savings

    Double-pane replacement vinyl windows that incorporate special gasses are remarkably energy efficient. The amount of money you can expect to save varies depending on your own energy consumption, but in order to take full advantage of double-pane windows, it is highly recommended that you get double-pane windows with insulating gases between the panes.

    3.      Sound Dampening

    If you live near downtown Orlando or a busy Orlando suburb, you’re probably tired of all the noise coming from the streets. Double-pane windows are known for their superior sound-dampening and may lessen the amount of excess noise you get from surrounding areas. 

    If you’re ready to take advantage of energy efficient double-pane or single-pane windows, then call Orlando’s premier replacement window retailer and installer, Window World. Window World has been helping Orlando area homeowners purchase and install vinyl replacement windows since 1995 and is now one of the largest, most trusted replacement window companies in the United States.
