Santa Clarita, California Window Replacement

Last updated on 11/15/2019

The most effective Santa Clarita window replacement strategies vary from one CA home to another. If the majority of your windows are performing well, you may need to replace only one or two of your window sets in key areas of your residence to spruce up your house and increase your California home energy efficiency. If your entire house is noisy or drafty, or if you're concerned about energy loss and home security, an overall Santa Clarita window replacement may be warranted.

Homeowners in Santa Clarita, a busy community in Los Angeles County, enjoy temperate climates throughout the year. When it comes to Santa Clarita window replacement, heat loss may not be as important as solar heat gain, a phenomenon that occurs when heat accumulates in your home as sunlight passes through the glass. When you're choosing window replacement products, look for a brand with a low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, or SHGC. A Santa Clarita window replacement professional can advise you on choosing the most efficient products for sunny CA.

CA Replacement Window Basics

Before you begin your search for Santa Clarita window replacement products, it may be helpful to review the basic components of a replacement window. When you talk with a replacement contractor, you'll have a better understanding of how windows are put together and what makes certain Santa Clarita products more or less energy efficient. Windows consist of an assembly of different parts, each of which plays a role in the structure and function of the entire unit. The whole unit is called a sash, and the frame is the structure that holds the sash in place.

The head, jambs and sill constitute the upper, outer and lower edges of a sash, respectively. The panes are the separate segments of glass that fit inside the sash. When there are two or more panes in a unit, they may be separated by muntin bars. The glazing of the panes refers to the treatment of the glass. Glass may be glazed to reduce solar heat gain, resist the effects of UV light rays or increase the energy efficiency of your home.

When you shop for replacement window products, you have several basic styles to choose from. Most of the basic styles can be customized by choosing a non standard size or a unique finish that complements the style and appearance of your Santa Clarita home. Incorporated in the late 1980s, Santa Clarita is a relatively new California community, and many of its homes reflect a contemporary style. Sliding models are popular in contemporary residences because their panes offer unbroken views and blend seamlessly into an understated modern decor.

The casement and double hung replace designs are the most traditional Santa Clarita window replacement styles. The casement style is hinged on the outer vertical edge and opens outward like a door to increase the light and ventilation in your California home. The casement is known for being easy to operate and clean. The double hung style has two sashes that move independently, giving you greater control over the airflow inside your dwelling.

No matter which style you choose for your replacement products, look for an energy efficient brand that will keep your house comfortable while reducing the workload on your heating and cooling systems. Although the weather in Santa Clarita is generally mild, winter days can be chilly, and high temperatures in the summer can make your rooms excessively warm. With energy efficient products, you can use your furnace or air conditioner as needed without worrying about running up your utility bills.

Low E Glass

In Santa Clarita, where sunshine is abundant throughout the year, protecting your home's interior from the sun is a top priority. Low E, or low emission, glass is specially treated with a very thin layer of oxidized metal to increase its insulation potential and control the way light and heat are transmitted through the glass. Low E glass can be produced in various ways to control its effects. Tinting may be added to maximize the glare control of a Santa Clarita window replacement product.

A solar control low E window has no tinting and provides maximum protection against the heat of the sun. When you implement Santa Clarita window replacement with solar control windows, you can count on having a cooler, more comfortable house on hot days. Speak with a local contractor about the best products for minimizing solar heat gain and blocking the UV rays that enter your residence.

Santa Clarita window replacement experts have extensive knowledge of the different styles of windows and the various glazing treatments that homeowners can choose from. Talk with more than one professional to compare the market and get a sense of which brands fall within your price range. You'll enjoy long lasting energy efficiency and comfort when you work with a qualified expert.
