Long Beach, California Window Replacement

Last updated on 11/15/2019

Long Beach window replacement specialists help homeowners in the Long Beach, California area with their replacement projects. Replacing windows is necessary when they no longer do a good job of keeping hot and cold air from entering our California homes, leading to energy loss and inefficiency. Seek out Energy Star replacement products for your Long Beach window replacement project in order to maximize energy savings and save money to put toward other home upgrades. Shoppers in the walking friendly Southern California community of Long Beach will appreciate the fact that an energy efficient product is safer for our planet. Curbing energy usage helps on a global level, as well as an individual one in terms of conserving our financial resources.

Fortunately, Long Beach window replacement is an upgrade most homeowners are likely to only have to complete once in a lifetime. Since it is done so rarely, it makes sense to invest in the best for our homes. Learning about all of the Long Beach window replacement styles and options is the first step in selecting the wood or vinyl replacement windows that best match our needs. There are several terms that manufacturers use to assess and compare energy efficiency across the board, and it helps for consumers to have an awareness of them as we begin shopping for replacement models. There are numerous Long Beach window replacement companies that can help you select affordable, high performance products.

Double Glazed Window

A double glazed window is a high performance style which consists of two panes of gas separated by a thin layer filled with a gas such as argon or krypton. The gas acts as an extremely effective barrier against heat and cold transmission. These highly efficient products keep our Long Beach homes feeling comfortable year round. A common misconception exists that this type of product is designed exclusively for colder climates. Even in a moderate climate region such as Long Beach, a double glazed window is a standard recommendation for a couple reasons. The primary reason is to keep cool air inside on a warm day rather than seeping out through any cracks in the seal. A double glazed California window replacement product will keep our air conditioners from running constantly on hot CA days.

Another reason a double paned window is a great replacement choice over aluminum window replacement is because of its excellent ability to block external noise. On those days when you are trying to sleep in and the rest of your neighborhood is wide awake, this window will block the noise of screaming children, passing traffic, or a loud car engine. This model also offers better home security over a single pane because of its durability and internal locking system. A window is a popular entry point to a residence for burglars, so Long Beach window replacement is a measure we can take to protect our loved ones and valuables.

Energy Efficient Ratings

There are several energy efficiency ratings you will want to be familiar with to help you in evaluating Long Beach window replacement models. An understanding of these terms will assist us in comparing products on more than cost alone. R value measures the ability to resist the transfer of heat, and a higher R value signifies better insulation for your CA residence. The U value, opposite of the R value, measures the model's ability to transfer heat in or out, so it is best to look for a lower U value. The amount of heat that passes through the glass from the sun is referred to as the solar heat gain coefficient, and it is wise to look for a number closer to zero to ensure that our air conditioners don't work overtime on toasty summer days.

While we want our Long Beach window replacement products to not easily conduct heat transfer, we also want them to allow in plenty of natural light. If we can reduce our need for interior lighting, we will notice a decrease in our electric bill. Visible light transmittance (VT) is the amount of visible light that passes through the glass; no matter where we live, a higher VT always means that we will enjoy plenty of natural light in the interior of our Long Beach homes. UV light transmittance, on the other hand, is a measure of the percentage of damaging ultraviolet light that comes in. Look for a lower value to avoid faded carpets and upholstery.

No matter what our reasons are for seeking Long Beach window replacement services, by gathering ample information we can ask the appropriate questions and get the answers we need to select the most affordable, high performance models available.

Long Beach, California U-Factor and SHGC Ratings for Replacement Windows

When shopping for replacement windows in Long Beach, California - located in Los Angeles County - it is extremely important to purchase windows with the correct u-factor and solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) as rated by Energy Star.

Energy Star determines the u-factor and SHGC that will give you the most energy efficienct window replacement based on your zip code's climate zone.

The climate zone assigned to your zip code takes into account how extreme the seasons are in your area of California. How warm and cold it gets where you live determines how well your new windows will need to keep out the cold air and the hot sun.

California, unlike most states, has many micro-climates. Due to these micro-climates most counties and cities in California have more than one climate zone. Therefore most CA cities and counties have more than one u-factor and solar heat gain coefficient rating depending upon which particular climate zone your zip code is in.

Below, you will find a table with the climate zones and corresponding u-factor and SHGC ratings for Long Beach, California and Long Beach's nearby cities and zip codes.

  1. Find your city name in the left most column under "Cities and Zips".
  2. Under your city name, locate your zip code.
    1. If you don't see your zip code, scroll down to the next "Cities and Zips" heading and locate your city again. Then find your zip code.
