Dirty windows are unsightly from the outside, unpleasant to look through, and more prone to the buildup of debris and potentially hazardous bacteria than clean windows are. If you would like to learn how to keep your windows sparkling clean with little effort, follow these tips:
Choose Low-Maintenance Windows
Some windows are simply easier to keep clean than others. Speak with a window installation expert about installing windows that have one or more of the following qualities:
- Beveled Exterior Mainframe: Windows with right-angled corners collect more dust and debris than windows with beveled exterior mainframes.
- Sloped Windowsill or Full Capture Windowsill: A sloped windowsill forces water to drain right off of the sill, and full capture sills protect windows from the filtration of water and air.
- Double Barrier-Fin Weatherstripping: With double barrier-fin weatherstripping, you can prevent dirt buildup from rapidly accumulating on your home’s windows.
Use an Appropriate Cleanser
Choose a cleanser designed specifically for glass, because all-purpose cleaners are not very effective when it comes to cleaning windows . Ask your window installation professional to recommend a specific type of cleanser, and wash your windows with it at least once a month. To avoid dust and dirt buildup in those hard-to-reach corners, use an old toothbrush or cotton balls to access and clean them.
Prevent the Buildup of Dirt
To avoid having to replace your windows more often than necessary, keep your barbecue grill at least five feet away from any of your home’s windows or sliding glass doors. Likewise, you should keep candles at a distance of several feet from windows to avoid dirtying them with smoke residue.
If your Orlando home’s current windows do not maintain a consistent level of cleanliness, speak with a window installation professional about replacing them with windows that do. To find out more about types of windows that are designed to deter the accumulation of dust, dirt, and dirty water, call Window World at (321) 282-6200.
When people think of siding, they tend to think of the exterior protection that it provides for their homes. However, siding is also an insulating material that can promote a comfortable indoor environment and lead to substantial energy savings over time. To find out more about the ways in which Window World Prodigy® and Comfort World insulated siding systems can reduce your carbon footprint and keep your utility bills to a minimum, continue reading this article.
Using Another Form of Home Insulation
Insulated siding can fortify your home’s existing wall insulation, and in some cases, even serve as a substitute for it. The energy-conscious home building movement has led to the development of vinyl siding with foam insulation one or more inches thick. Speak with a window and siding installation professional to determine what type of energy-efficient siding will best serve your home’s insulation needs.
Bridging the Thermal Gap
Standard wall insulation is placed between wall studs, through which a significant degree of heat inevitably escapes. When you cover your home’s exterior with insulated siding, you are effectively blanketing your home. Less warmth will escape during the wintertime, and less heat will penetrate through to your home’s interior during the summer.
Cutting Energy Costs Without Sacrificing Beauty
The state-of-the-art Window World Prodigy® and Comfort World insulated wall vinyl systems are available in a wide range of colors, profiles, and textures. Regardless of the architectural style of your house, there is an energy-saving insulated siding type that will suit it. This means that the beauty of your home will be left intact while your carbon footprint and energy bills are reduced.
