Its proximity to Music City and southern charm makes Murfreesboro a great place for families to make a home. The town is also home to Middle Tennessee State University, the largest undergraduate institution. Students from all over the region come to this town at the geographic center of Tennessee for school and end up making it their permanent home.

Enhancing Comfort

Murfreesboro experiences long, hot summers and mostly mild winters with several very cold days. Residents find their air conditioners going full tilt many months of the year, and this can have a disastrous effect on utility bills. Murfreesboro replacement windows with energy efficient features can help reduce cooling costs by blocking heat from coming in and stopping valuable cold air from going out.

Double-glazed replacement windows account for most models on the market, and it is important that your Murfreesboro replacement windows have that characteristic. Two panes of glass are divided by an air or gas fill that buffers extreme outdoor temperatures from entering the home. Triple-glazed glass provides even more insulation that can make a difference during the winter. The fill can also reduce street noise, a convenience for people who live on busy roads.

Another feature is low- or moderate-solar gain low-emittance coatings on the window. These microscopic metallic coatings are spectrally selective, so they block solar heat while admitting maximal light. Look for new replacement windows with a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.25 or less to prevent the summer heat from interfering with your air conditioner.

Murfreesboro replacement windows are labeled with several measures of their performance. Do not dismiss these numbers as manufacturer technical language. The optimal numbers to look for are a U-factor of 0.21 to 0.25 and a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.25 or less on replacement windows with non-metal frames. These specs represent the best energy efficiency when it comes to lowering energy costs, winter and summer comfort and condensation resistance.

Finding Window Dealers and Contractors

Murfreesboro replacement windows are only as good as their installation. No matter how energy efficient the replacement unit is, if it is installed incorrectly, those energy savings will be lost. Finding a trustworthy Murfreesboro dealer and contractor is just as important as shopping for the replacement window itself.

Dealers sell various brands of Murfreesboro replacement windows. Do some comparison shopping to get the best prices for the best product. When you have narrowed down your dealers, look into the service you will receive. Some dealers include installation in the price. Independent contractors may offer lower prices for installation since they have lower overhead costs, so research both options.

Ask contractors for referrals of Murfreesboro replacement windows they have installed around town. You can drive by and take a look at their work. They may even have a list of clients you can contact to ask about their experience with the contractor. Of course, most contractors will only give you the information for highly satisfied customers, so do your own asking among friends and coworkers.

Make sure anyone you hire is licensed, bonded and insured. Most contractors working on home improvement projects must be licensed. This ensures that they have undergone skills, ethics and safety training. A bonded contractor has a surety bond from a TN bonding agency that guarantees their work. In case of theft or damage, the bond is paid out to the homeowner to recover his losses.

Hiring insured Murfreesboro contractors is also important. The liability coverage on your TN homeowner's insurance policy covers people who are injured on your property, but making a claim can cause your premium to skyrocket. In addition, the limits tend to be quite low, so the policy may not fully cover an injured contractor's medical bills, and it does nothing to recoup lost wages. For you safety and his, the contractors should be insured by his company.

Find out from both the dealer and contractor if your Murfreesboro replacement windows and their installation are covered under warranty. A lifetime warranty can be a valuable asset if the windows are faulty, the installation is incorrect or the window wears out over time. Another important consideration is how long the manufacturer has been in business. A lifetime warranty is useless if it is from a fly-by-night company that closes up shop in a year.
