window upgrade

This guest post is from Erik Loza.

This year I decided that it was time to get my windows redone. I did not realize until recently that my windows had been letting in drafts all winter long and had also been letting all of the AC escape through the gaps during the summer. I read about loose and Leaky Windows in a magazine and decided when my electric bill came through the mail that it was too high and that I would see what could be done with the electric bill if I were to get my windows replaced.

Though the high electric bill was discouraging toward putting more money to new windows I decided to do it anyway to see if it would make a difference in my heating and cooling bills. I got my windows refitted and the Sears Home Pro in California people that came to install the windows and take out the old ones said that my windows were loose and that the new ones would fit appropriately into the window frames. The professionals installed the windows within a matter of hours and then I waited for my next cooling bill to come as I had them installed in the summer. When I received my first cooling bill of the summer I could not help but be shocked. My cooling bill was down by almost fifty dollars due to the energy I conserved.
