Getting replacement windows in Hemet, CA is an investment and it’s not something you have to do very often. Most homeowners only go through the process once so it’s important to get just what you want and just what your specific home needs when you take the project on. Your home is unique and has different challenges than the home next door or the one across town. There are plenty of upgrades to consider, but which one should you get to address the problems your home has? Here are a few examples:
You Live On A Busy Street
If you live on a street with constant traffic, or close enough to the interstate that you can hear the honks and noise at all hours, you might want to consider getting triple pane glass when you get new windows. That extra pane of glass (and the extra space between the panes) will insulate your home further and act as a bigger sound barrier. You’ll notice much more peace and quiet in your home once the windows are installed. It also works well for noisy neighbors and barking dogs down the block.
The Sun Never Lets Up
California is known for its sunny days and that’s great when you want to get some sun. But the heat can be intense and there is such a thing as too much light. If you want to block that heat from getting into your house and you have a home that sits in the full sun without any shade trees nearby, consider low-E glass coatings. This invisible, metallic coating reflects heat so the sunlight’s heat will bounce back outside. It also blocks UV rays so you don’t have to worry about things fading in your home. While the sun can beat down all it wants, your home is cool and comfortable. And you don’t have to block the light out to obtain that comfort!
You Want Energy Efficiency
Normally, the manufacturers place air between the panes of glass. If you want the utmost efficiency, you might consider upgrading to an inert gas filling. That gas is harmless, but denser than air so it slows down any airflow that would come through the glass, heightening your home’s efficiency. Keep in mind that the other two upgrades, triple pane glass and low-E coatings, also make efficiency higher within a home. Decide which works best for your goals and go with that upgrade.
