When Should You Replace those Windows?
Wednesday, December 19, 2018
If you have an older residence and your heating bills have been getting higher over the years it may be due to needing some new windows that will allow the heat inside your home to stay right where it belongs – indoors. But how you you know when those windows need replaced and what are your options for financing this home improvement?
Pasadena Service Federal Credit Union has some great rates for Energy Equipment Loans they have for you and if you take advantage of them you can get all the financing you need to replace those old windows, or any other energy reducing improvements, and get started on making it happen.
Here’s how you can determine if your windows need replaced:
Now that you know your windows need replaced you will have to choose which windows you want to replace them with and that can be a job in and of itself. There any many different grades of window when it comes to cost, and the most expensive is not always the best and the cheapest isn’t always the worst. Here is a guide to help you choose your new windows:
Remember not commit these three mistakes while choosing your new windows:
1. Make sure that you are picking only the best materials that are designed to last. Remember, all windows are not the same.
2. Make sure to read the fine print on the warranty. Many windows might say “Lifetime Warranty,” but if the fine print says “except for natural weathering” it means there is a huge hole in that warranty that you might want to avoid as almost everything under the Sun can be chalked up to “natural weathering.”
3. Know exactly what you are buying. From the windows themselves to installation, remember to research well the products and services that you are going to spend your money on. Check the ratings, read the customer comments, and always make sure to check with the Better Business Bureau.
Once you have done your research, picked you windows and a suitable contractor to put them in (or even do it yourself, if you have the know how) then get yourself down to Pasadena Service Federal Credit Union and avail yourself of their Energy Equipment Loans to put the final piece in place to get this job completed. Once done, you will notice the difference almost immediately, and over time the money you save will recoup the money you spent. Not only that, but you will be doing your part to help save the environment and when you add all that up it makes good sense to replace that old, inefficient energy equipment just as fast as you can.
