Chico Replacement Windows

Chico replacement windows are manufactured in a wide range of styles, sizes and materials to accommodate the homes in the community known as the "City of Roses." Located in the Sacramento Valley of Northern CA, Chico has a Mediterranean climate, with high temperatures in the summer months. In the fall and winter, tule fog is not uncommon in this valley region. Chico homeowners need attractive, durable windows that can provide adequate insulation throughout the year while boosting the curb appeal of their homes.

Choosing the right replacement windows for a CA home isn't always an easy decision. Finding a replacement product that prevents solar heat gain on hot California days while insulating your rooms on chilly winter mornings requires a basic knowledge of the effects of specific framing materials or glass types on the performance of replacement windows. A Chico replacement windows specialist can provide valuable advice when you're searching for the most energy efficient, cost effective replacement models.

Aluminum Replacement Windows

The material that frames a Chico replacement windows assembly is one of the most important factors in determining its energy efficiency. Efficient, high performance windows provide a high level of insulation, prevent air leakage and minimize solar heat gain. The framing material of your replacement windows affects the thermal protection and air leakage resistance of your new assemblies.

Aluminum is a resilient, light weight metal that's used in many Chico home products because of its strength, durability and versatility. Because of the strength of this metal relative to its weight, aluminum is often used in commercial buildings in California, especially for large panes of glass that require exceptional support. In the temperate, sunny climate of Chico, aluminum can be a versatile, affordable choice for homeowners, as well. Although metal is not an effective insulator in frigid winter weather, aluminum may be adequate in this warm climate.

If you prefer the traditional look of wood inside your Chico home, consider installing aluminum clad Chico replacement windows. Aluminum cladding can protect the exterior of your wooden frames from the elements, extending their lifespan and minimizing maintenance requirements. Meanwhile, the wooden interior of your frames can be painted any color you choose to complement the decor of your California residence. With aluminum clad Chico replacement windows, you benefit from the strength of metal and the classic beauty of wood at the same time.

An aluminum frame can be painted to match the exterior of your CA home. However, as the protective paint chips or flakes, the underlying metal can become corroded. Aluminum products must be touched up periodically to keep them in good condition and maintain their fresh, attractive appearance. Many Chico homeowners appreciate the crisp, clean lines of aluminum frames and take pride in installing these products on their homes.

To find the material that's best for your energy requirements and insulation needs, compare the features and costs of several materials. As you evaluate aluminum products, consider vinyl, wood or fiberglass as possible alternatives. This substantial investment can change the way your home looks and feels for years, so it's important to feel satisfied with your decision. Consult a Chico replacement windows specialist to discuss your options and choose the most effective products for your household.

Condensation Resistance

When the temperature drops in the Sacramento Valley, tule fog is a common phenomenon. You may see fog gathering on the outside of your window panes when the exterior temperature drops. Although exterior vapor formation is to be expected, vapor on the inside of your panes may indicate that your home is not adequately ventilated, or that your glass is not properly insulated.

If you see condensation forming between the layers of glass in a double paned assembly, the seal between the panes may have been broken. When this occurs, replacing the assembly may be the best option. Buying condensation resistant glass may reduce the amount of fog that you see on your interior panes. Well insulated glass retains a warm surface, minimizing the formation of vapor. Ventilating your bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room can also reduce the amount of condensation on your glass.

High performance Chico replacement windows offer superior condensation resistance as well as protection against heat loss and air leakage. You can check the condensation resistance factor, or CR, of Chico replacement windows by consulting the label issued by the National Fenestration Rating Council, or NFRC. The NFRC rates new window, door or skylight products based on their condensation resistance and other factors that reflect their performance.

Your house is one of the most valuable assets you own, and Chico replacement windows can enhance its value. High performance products make a home more comfortable, quiet and secure.
