Window Replacement and Door Replacement is one of the best ways to increase energy savings in your home. If you live in an older home, you most likely have single pane windows that allow solar heat gain into your home. You may also have wood windows that have battled weather for many years and may be exhibiting signs of rotten sills, jambs and moldings. There are many replacement options from replacing sashes within the existing frame to a full window replacement in the same opening. Materials and manufacturers are numerous and offer wood windows, composite windows, vinyl windows and fiberglass windows. There is a good window selection to meet every budget with many grille options or clear glass for a full outdoor view. With Low-E glass that is double pane and argon gas filled, you decrease the solar heat gain and increase your energy savings. This also allows you to take advantage of the energy tax credit for 2010 for a percentage of the material expense of the windows or doors.
