Don’t look now, but we may be in for a long, cold winter this year.
According to the remarkably accurate Old Farmer’s Almanac, residents in the Northeast Region (which includes portions of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont) are in for a winter that is “colder than normal on average” with precipitation that is either near or slightly above normal.
If just the thought of winter makes you shiver, maybe it’s time to make sure your home will be warm and snug when temperatures drop, while also reducing the energy you use to heat your home. The best way to do that is to replace your drafty old windows with energy efficient Bristol Windows from Rescom Exteriors.
According to studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), up to one-third of a home’s energy can be lost through inefficient doors and windows. That’s like leaving every third window wide open all winter long!
The fact is most windows installed more than 10 years ago are simply not made to withstand the cold weather. Advances in materials technology and window manufacturing techniques make today’s replacement windows significantly more energy efficient. Instead of letting warm air leak out and cold air seep in, the Bristol Windows we install create an effective “thermal barrier” that helps seal your home from energy loss.
The result is a home that is more comfortable, with improved temperature regulation that helps to keep your heating system from “kicking on” quite so often. You burn less fuel – oil, gas, propane or electricity – and spend less to stay warmer and more comfortable.
It is not too late to make this important and worthwhile improvement to you home before the winter weather closes in. Contact Rescom Exteriors this week to inquire about replacing your home’s old windows with modern, high performance Bristol Windows.
