|New windows can improve your home and your life|
When it comes to making a home more energy-efficient, many people think they need to install solar panels or get a new HVAC system. In reality, however, one of the easiest solutions is to upgrade the windows throughout your home. Long Fence and Home, the leading window replacement installer in Maryland, Virginia and DC, has been in the industry for more than 65 years and knows exactly why new windows are the best solution for a happier, healthier home.
Energy and Cost Savings. The DC metro area is unique in that it has very hot, humid summers and cold, snowy winters. With these two extremes, your house will be dependent on heating during the winter and cooling during the summer. The energy that is lost through poorly created and poorly installed windows is exactly what increases your spend on energy during these seasons. Properly installed windows from Long Fence and Home can save a home hundreds of dollars in energy output during the winter and in the summer. In one year alone, your savings could reach into the thousands.
Improved Comfort and Cool to the Touch. Windows also greatly affect the comfort level of your home. During the summer, most windows let in hot rays from the sun, while at the same time becoming warm and heating the area around the window. Windows from Long Fence and Home include a heat mirror technology, considered one of the top 100 inventions of the past 1,000 years. These windows are cool to the touch—even in extreme heat—and are properly paned, greatly increasing the comfort level of your home in all seasons.
Less Condensation and Increased Visibility. High-performance windows from Long Fence and Home reduce frost and condensation by maintaining a consistent temperature throughout the window frame. With properly sealed edges and multiple panes, the temperature is regulated on the window and frost and condensation are wiped away, allowing for clear sight to the beautiful outside.
Fewer Ultraviolet Rays. These rays from the sun not only heat your home and cause cancer, but they also fade organic materials such as carpet, fabrics, wood and paints in your home. To prevent this, Long Fence and Home uses a glass coating that reduces up to 75% of ultraviolet rays, keeping the inside of your home looking fresh and new.
