AZ Patio Window Replacement
If you have sliding or french patio doors in your AZ house, you may not think of them as windows. However, a patio door is basically a large window, serving the same functions and presenting the same risks to the property owner. The framing materials you choose when you're considering Chandler window replacement for patio doors are extremely important to the comfort and energy efficiency of your home. With such a large opening, a poorly insulated, underperforming window could cause significant energy loss and result in a spike in your utility bills.
Patio door replacement can be a costly project. Before you take this step, evaluate your patio doors to make sure the panels and tracks are clean and operating properly. If your sliding doors are rattling or failing to open or close smoothly, fixing the problem may be simply a matter of cleaning the tracks thoroughly. In the summer months, desert winds in Chandler can blow dust and debris into your Arizona home. When dust gathers in the tracks of a patio door, the unit may get jammed, and the frame may warp if its forced to open or close.
Clean out the tracks with a soft cloth or vacuum cleaner attachment to remove the dirt. Replacement of the track itself may solve the problem if a simple cleaning isn't effective. If you're still having trouble with the units, or the room seems drafty or hot, contact a Chandler window replacement professional to see if replacing the unit is warranted. If you do have the opportunity to purchase new window sets, ask your provider about a brand that will minimize solar heat gain inside your Chandler home and clock the loss of conditioned air on hot days.
Chandler Passive Solar Design
In the Southwestern states, the sun is bright and powerful. Although many of the residents of this area were drawn to the desert because of the sun, too much of a good thing can be harmful to your health and your home. When sunlight accumulates in your interior, the light gradually raises the temperature inside your home, making it even harder to keep your rooms cool. For the elderly retirees who live in this area, solar heat gain can be especially dangerous. Young children and older adults are vulnerable to the effects of strong sunlight and intense heat.
In this climate, cooling a house is more important than heating. Although temperatures can drop in the winter, the sunlight can keep rooms warm on cooler days if your home is strategically designed. Passive solar design takes advantage of the angles of the sun and the positioning of the windows of your home to keep your house at a livable temperature. Chandler window replacement experts can advise you on which products to buy and how to position any new openings in your house to maximize the passive heating of the sun.
Chandler window replacement contractors may recommend that you invest in glass that minimizes the effects of sunlight when you replace your old units. Because the windows that face south collect the most light, these panels should be covered with solar resistant shades during the day. These stylish treatments can be as attractive as any other contemporary blinds, but they will reduce the effects of bright light. Emphasize north facing windows when you plan Chandler window replacement, and choose tinted or reflective glass.
If you're looking for ways to make your house more environmentally friendly and reduce your use of expensive cooling systems, talk with a Chandler window replacement professional about how you can take advantage of passive solar design. By blocking the sun's rays in certain areas, you may reduce the need to air conditioning. Choose well insulated frames and protective glass to keep cool air from escaping.
