In our blog, we talk a lot about the benefits of replacing the windows and doors in your San Diego home. It makes your home more energy efficient, it modernizes the look of your home, and it can increase your home’s value. But we don’t just want you to take our word for it. That’s why we thought you might like to hear what some of the most popular home improvement experts on HGTV, the network dedicated to all things related to the home, have to say about window replacement.
Chip Gaines, the quirky, but competent, general contractor from the hit HGTV show Fixer Upper, recommends window and door replacement as one of the best upgrades you can do for your home. He says in an article in the Los Angeles Times, “Replace your windows for more energy-efficient ones — this will save a lot of money.”
As a contractor, Chip knows the impact new replacement windows can have on your energy bills. Not only will you see cost savings every month, but the level of comfort in your home will also improve. If your San Diego home still has single pane or leaky windows, you should consider replacing them and upgrading to new, energy-efficient dual pane windows with Low E glass.
Another popular home improvement expert, Mike Holmes, from the show Holmes Makes it Right, talks about replacement windows on his blog “The Holmes Spot.” He says, “Heat loss and gain through windows accounts for about half of our heating and cooling needs. A poorly installed and/or insulated window is like having a giant hole in your home’s exterior—and you will see the proof in your energy bills.”
When it comes to having replacement windows installed, Mike says, “The key is finding a professional who will know what type of windows will work best for your home, and who’ll make sure they are properly installed.”
As usual, Mike Holmes is right on! Not every home in has the same needs, and you want to hire a replacement window company in San Diego that is knowledgeable about the various replacement window products on the market and which ones will meet yours. When it comes to installation, you want to make sure you hire a company with professional installers. You can purchase the most energy-efficient windows there are, but if they are poorly installed, you won’t see any of the energy savings.
