Delray Replacement Windows

Delray replacement windows providers are familiar with the weather extremes of the Michigan climate and how these climate patterns can affect homeowners. Double glazed replacement windows provide superior insulation for your South Side home, with two panes of treated glass and an interior layer of air or argon gas. Unlike single paned windows, which provide only one layer of protection against the cold MI winters, double paned products offer an extra layer of insulation to keep your Delray home cozy on the coldest days.

The more you know about your options when you're shopping for Delray replacement windows, the better prepared you'll be to choose replacement windows with confidence. Replacing windows throughout your home represents a substantial investment, but for many Delray homeowners, this single project also results in a significant improvement in the comfort level of their home. Take advantage of the benefits of Delray replacement windows by discussing your potential energy savings with an experienced Michigan provider.

Identifying Air Leaks

The neighborhood of Delray is surrounded by thoroughfares and industrial buildings, which separate this area from the rest of the South Side. Although manufacturing, water treatment and chemical processing came to take over the area over the course of its history, there are still many single family dwellings in Delray. Keeping your MI home comfortable and secure requires well insulated Delray replacement windows that have a high level of thermal protection and a resistance to air infiltration.

You don't have to hire a professional energy auditor to identify the air leaks in your Detroit home, although this service is available through many independent agencies. You can identify air leaks by locating areas of your Delray house that feel drafty or cold, even when your heating system is operating. Some leaks make audible noises as the air passes through a window frame or through cracks between the glass panes. A visible fog on the inside of your windows or between double panes is an indication that the seal may have been broken.

After dark, it's possible to see areas where air may pass through a window assembly. Look for lines of light around the frames or muntins, the wooden segments that separate panes of glass. Have a friend or family member use a flashlight to illuminate the window from the outside while you stand indoors to detect areas that are prone to air infiltration. Alternatively, you can hold a candle to areas of the assembly where you suspect a leak. A draft will draw the flame toward the window.

Many air leaks can be sealed using a high grade caulking material. However, over time, under-performing products will continue to detract from the comfort level of your Detroit home and may affect your energy bills. Replacement of all of the units in your residence may be a costly investment, but the money you save on your utility bills and the increased comfort level of your home may make this replacement project well worth the cost.

Double Hung Windows

When it comes to buying Delray replacement windows, you have a number of classic or contemporary styles to choose from. Double hung replacement units remain one of the most popular window styles. Double hung sashes maximize your control over the air flow in your Delray home, improving ventilation and interior air quality. These units are also easier to clean because each of the two sashes operates independently, allowing easy access to either of the unit's panes.

On warm days, it's easy to ventilate a room by opening one of the sashes on a double hung window. If you have curious toddlers in your home, you may choose to open the top sash while leaving the lower, more accessible sash closed. When you're washing your interior panes, you'll find that it's extremely easy to reach both sashes of a double hung unit. Double hung products may be more costly than single hung units, which have only one operable sash. However, the added convenience and ventilation control may make the extra cost worthwhile.

Double hung Delray replacement windows are available in wood, vinyl, aluminum or fiberglass. Many homeowners prefer wood for its traditional appearance and natural insulating properties, or vinyl for its low cost and superior energy performance. Aluminum is not the most effective insulating material, despite its strength and durability. Fiberglass Delray replacement windows are energy efficient but may be more costly than vinyl or wood. Discuss your Delray replacement windows options with an experienced local provider.

Shopping for energy efficient Delray replacement windows can be overwhelming at first. With so many styles, materials and glass types to choose from, it can be hard t make a decision. A replacement specialist can help you identify a product that will keep your home comfortable without overextending your budget. Take this important step with the help of a reliable local supplier.
