Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Window Replacement

Last updated on 01/07/2022

Philadelphia window replacement is the key to keeping your home adequately insulated against the cold local winters. When air leaks through outdated or damaged window assemblies, you may notice drafts in your rooms. You may also notice that the cost of heating your home has risen. Contact several Philadelphia window replacement experts for quotes on removing your old units and replacing them with high performing, energy efficient models.

From the founding of the city in 1682, Philadelphia has played significant roles in the nation's development. Today, Philadelphia is a center of finance, education, culture, law and the arts. Tourists from around the world come to the City of Brotherly Love to view the Liberty Bell and other historic attractions. With the gentrification of the city's older neighborhoods, many of its historic homes have been restored. Philadelphia window replacement has been part of this restoration, as homeowners upgrade their dwellings with the latest replacement brands.

Philadelphia Pennsylvania Window Replacement

Insulating Philadelphia Windows

Homeowners who are handy with household projects may decide to try Philadelphia window replacement themselves rather than spending the additional money to hire a professional Pennsylvania window installation team. While window replacement is not a difficult job on new homes with perfectly intact window frames, replacement on older Philadelphia dwellings can pose problems with waterproofing and insulation. A knowledge of water sealing, weather proofing and insulation are essential to ensure that Philadelphia replacement products perform as expected.

Not even the top Philadelphia window replacement brands will perform effectively if the installation is not done correctly. In order for replacement to be effective in Pennsylvania, where average temperatures in the winter can hover around the 20s or 30s and heavy snow is common, each window frame must be in good condition before Philadelphia window replacement takes place. In old houses, wooden frames may be damaged by moisture accumulation, mold, mildew and pests. A PA contractor will repair frames before installing new units.

Insulating your existing units may help you maintain the condition of your Philadelphia window replacement products. Many PA homeowners are able to increase their home's energy efficiency by caulking or weather stripping their window assemblies. Even nearly invisible gaps around frames or panes can cause air infiltration, which can affect the temperature inside your house and increase your energy usage.

To determine whether insulation is necessary, you can hire an energy auditor to inspect your windows and doors. However, many Pennsylvania homeowners are aware of air infiltration because they can feel drafts, hear panes rattling slightly or see strips of light around the frames. Silicone caulking compounds can be used to seal small or large gaps in your current assemblies. Weather stripping may be used around frames to enhance insulation. If these measures are not effective, Philadelphia window replacement is the next step.

Condensation and Window Replacement

During the fall and winter, when temperatures drop, it's natural to see condensation on your exterior replacement window panes. You may see vapor on your interior panes when you're using dishwashers, boiling water or you've just taken a bath or shower. However, if you see condensation forming on the inside of double paned glass at any time of year, the seal between the panes may be broken.

Some energy efficient products have a high level of condensation resistance. Condensation resistance, or CR, is one of the factors used by the National Fenestration Rating Council to evaluate a brand's energy efficiency. A high rating means that the glass and frame are well insulated enough to minimize the formation of vapor on the inside of your panes. If you often see fog forming on your interior glass, try increasing air flow and reducing moisture inside your rooms with exhaust fans, vents or a dehumidifier.

If ventilation and interior moisture reduction aren't effective at cutting down on condensation, consider replacing your existing assemblies with more efficient models. Condensation may be only one indication that these units are not performing adequately. Your home may also be losing heat on cold days or leaking air when you're running the air conditioner. A PA contractor can evaluate your needs and help you choose a product that reduces vapor formation, keeps your house more comfortable and lowers your utility bills.

Replacing outdated models can also give your Philadelphia house a more contemporary appearance. While many homeowners in the Northeast swear by the appearance and efficiency of wood, others prefer the low maintenance requirements of vinyl or fiberglass. Any of these materials provide superior insulating capabilities if you choose top rated brands.

Philadelphia window replacement is a long term investment. When you buy brands with high energy ratings, you may spend more money up front. However, you'll notice a difference over time in the way your house feels and looks. As an added bonus, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you're contributing to the health of the environment by cutting energy usage.
