The recent decline in temperature has many homeowners questioning if their home is as energy efficient as it could be. Noticeable drafts throughout a home are warning sign that it needs professional attention. A reputable contractor can help determine whether the cause is subpar windows or insulation.
Windows: Contrary to popular belief, home window replacement projects can be completed year-round. Rough openings are open for a very brief period of time, having minimal impact on the home’s interior temperature. The payoff is a more comfortable home and windows that are absent of condensation due to a broken seal.
Our Advice for Selecting a Contractor That Can Successfully Install New Windows:
Insulation: Seasoned insulation contractors understand the science behind a home’s building envelope and the importance of attic air sealing and proper ventilation. By carefully evaluating your attic, a contractor can determine the best strategy to get the attic temperature the same as that outdoors. This approach is key in the prevention of costly ice dams.
