• Choosing Window Treatments for Your Kitchen Windows

    Adding new window treatments is an effective way to upgrade your kitchen for less. But with all of your options for blinds, shades, curtains, and valances, the process of selecting the right window treatments can be a bit overwhelming. Sleek blinds are the best window treatment if you have a nice view that you want to show off. For optimal privacy, choose a shade that filters the light or opens at the top. Curtains are ideal if you want a soft, classic look. Watch the video for more tips on finding the best kitchen window treatments.

  • Why Qualifying for a Window Tax Credit Is Easy

    Family Happiness

    The Department of Energy is committed to helping American families invest in high-quality, energy-efficient windows. That’s why the federal government’s energy-efficiency tax credit has been retroactively extended through the end of 2013. This means that if you purchased new windows, window replacements, or doors from Window World of Central Florida during 2012, you are still eligible to receive a tax credit for qualifying window products. This window tax credit will cover up to 10 percent of the total cost of replacement windows and doors up to $500. Specifically, there is a $200 maximum tax credit for windows and a $300 maximum tax credit for energy-efficient doors. All you have to do is download and fill out U.S. tax form 5695.

    For more information about the retroactive window tax credit , call Window World at (321) 282-6200 or visit our website. We have a great selection of replacement windows and doors for homeowners and businesses in Orlando. 

  • Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Windows

    Do you see moisture in between your windows, or are your energy bills abnormally high? These are two of the primary indicators that it’s time to start shopping for replacement windows . To find out if you need to replace your windows, look for the following sings.

    You Feel a Draft
    Even the best windows will allow a tiny bit of air into a home, but this should never be noticeable. If you detect a draft, it means your windows are allowing too much air into your home. As windows age, they tend to let more air in through the corners of the frames and sashes.

    It’s Hard to Shut or Open Your Windows
    If you have older single or  double hung windows  that are hard to operate, they may have balance issues. Windows that slam shut instead of remaining open are a safety hazard and should be replaced immediately. If you have wood or metal windows that are starting to fail, replace them, especially if they are rotting or rusting.

    There’s Condensation on the Glass
    When there is a seal failure between the glass panels of a window, moisture can enter the space and cause air to condense on the glass. When this happens, the insulated glass is no longer creating a barrier to cold air. You know that the seal has failed if you see condensation in between the panes of glass in your windows, or a white film left by calcium that was deposited on the glass.

    Your Energy Bills are Increasing
    A series of sky-high energy bills indicates that you either have an inefficient heating or cooling system, or old windows that are energy inefficient. The Department of Energy recommends replacing old or inefficient windows because they eventually pay for themselves by lowering heating and cooling costs.
