Alaska Window Replacement

Alaska window replacement can be an expensive home improvement project but if you compare the amount of money you will save over the lifetime of new energy efficient windows, you will be surprised at the results.

Windows and doors account for a major part of your home's heating bill in Alaska. If your existing windows have a poor energy efficiency rating, or U-value, you are losing a vast amount of heat through your windows. Choosing an Alaska replacement window can make your home more energy efficient thus saving you money on your monthly heating bills during those long Alaska winters.

Vinyl replacement windows are generally the best windows for value, energy efficiency and convenience. These windows are maintenance free, easier to install, and have excellent warranties. You may also want to consider a thermal option which is double or triple paned. These have an excellent energy efficiency rating which means they will save you even more money on your heating costs. There are however many different styles, manufacturers, options and details out there to choose from. From vinyl replacement windows to thermal, it basically comes down to 4 items; budget, size, convenience and style.

Considering Your Budget

Replacement windows cost a considerable amount if you have many windows to replace. The first thing you should consider when thinking about an Alaska window replacement is the budget you are willing to spend on your replacement. If money is a concern, you can opt for financing through a home improvement loan. You could also spread the window replacements out across time to help minimize the hit on your pocketbook. Common sizes can also save you money. Anything that is a factory special order will be more costly.

Check into tax rebates for your new Alaska window replacement. There may be energy tax incentives available for installing energy efficient windows. Look for Energy Star products which are approved for the available tax credit. Make sure the company you choose is licensed in order to take advantage of the incentive. Keep your receipts and talk to your tax professional to determine what rebates may be available to you in Alaska.

Damaged or rotted frames add to the cost of your replacement windows. These frames cannot be saved when you are removing your old windows so you will need to replace them. Be sure to inspect you frames and add them to your budget if necessary. It is best to have a licensed carpenter do the replacement in this case to ensure the proper fit.

Determining Size

Window sizes vary greatly. In order to get the best fit you will need the proper width and length measurements. The best way to take these measurements is to measure each end and the middle of both the length and the width. Use the smallest measurement when shopping for your new Alaska window replacement.

Convenience Options

If you are already planning an Alaska window replacement, you should also consider convenience. There are many new options to make cleaning your new windows quick and easy. Consider for instance the option of having the grills inside the glass instead of outside. This eliminates the need to clean the grill which any mother will tell you is a time consuming and messy job. You can also get tilt windows which will tilt in for ease of cleaning the outside of the window from the warmth of the inside. No matter which option you choose for your Alaska window replacement, your window cleaner will be very grateful.

Choosing the Style

When choosing the style of your new Alaska window replacement project, first review the existing style of your home. You may want to match the original window design. If you change the style of the windows too dramatically you will find it will change the look of the entire house. It can also make your house in Alaska look newer and more modern which can be a great selling point if you are selling your home. Another item you could consider would be tinting for additional heat reduction. It will also help cut out the sunlight during those long Alaska days.

If you plan to purchase an Alaska window replacement, be sure to first identify your budget restrictions. Once you know what you have to spend, take some time to review your current style and whether you want to upgrade to a new look. Consider the convenience options for maximum efficiency. Look for licensed dealers who offer warranties on their products. If you have damaged or rotted frames consider hiring a licensed professional to do your installation. Regardless of which options or styles you choose, new windows will provide you energy savings when your Alaska window replacement project is complete.
