Weinland Park Replacement Windows

Weinland Park replacement windows improve the look of any home, from the historic houses characteristic of neighborhoods in the University District to the modern apartments cropping up in the newly transformed Weinland Park. Replacement windows are available from a number of Columbus window replacement providers in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to replicate or upgrade the existing units. Whether your goal is improved function, better energy efficiency or a polished look, Weinland Park replacement windows have it all.

Weinland Park is a neighborhood in the University District of Columbus near The Ohio State University. The University District is well known for its variety of historic architecture along tree-lined streets. Weinland Park in particular has been undergoing renovation and revitalization since 2006 as per a city plan that includes a farmer's market, restaurants and new apartments.

A full installation of Weinland Park replacement windows is a pricey project, but the benefits are many. Winters in central OH can be frigid, and old, ill-fitting windows let the warm air inside leak right out into the cold. The house is harder to heat, and your heater is more susceptible to wear and tear. By purchasing energy-efficient replacement windows, your home will retain more heat, saving you money and making your house more comfortable in cold weather. Energy Star-rated replacements are even guaranteed to make up the cost difference with energy savings within a reasonable time frame.

Energy Star and Efficiency Ratings

Window manufacturers can tout their energy-efficient products with buzzwords and jargon, but only by seeing the actual performance measures can you determine whether they are truly the most efficient. For those who do not care to read up on the many performance measures listed on a National Fenestration Ratings Council label, the Energy Star logo is a dependable indicator of energy efficiency.

Energy Star is a government-backed program that endorses products that meet several performance criteria. Top-of-the-line energy efficiency is only one of the tests Energy Star products undergo. If the Ohio replacement window fixture is significantly more expensive than a product not sporting the blue star logo, the savings in utility bills must make up the difference in a reasonable amount of time. The technology used must also be non-proprietary and available for use by other companies so one manufacturer cannot have a monopoly on the efficiency market.

The label is a trustworthy marker of superior energy efficiency, but it comes at a price. The best of the best may be out of some Weinland Park residents' budgets. When consumers know what measures to look for, they can seek out comparable Weinland Park replacement windows that do not have the expensive Energy Star designation.

The most telling measure of performance is U-factor, an overall measure of rate of heat loss. The higher the U-factor, the more heat loss you will experience, so look for Weinland Park replacement windows with a U-factor of 0.30 or less. You also want to aim for the lowest possible air leakage rating. A poorly-constructed replacement window with loose seals and gaps between the frame and glass allows air to flow through, causing you to lose heat and gain frigid air in the OH winter.

Qualities of the Best Replacements

Weinland Park shoppers on a budget may have to prioritize certain qualities of their Weinland Park replacement windows over others. While you want the best available product, prime ratings on every performance measure will cost you. A reputable Columbus replacement window dealer will help you find the best product to fit your budget, but going into the transaction with some knowledge of what you are looking for gives you an edge on finding the Weinland Park replacement windows perfect for your home.

According to studies by the Efficient Windows Collaborative, the profile of the best quality replacement windows for central Ohio includes triple-glazing, high solar heat gain low-e coating, argon gas fill and a non-metal frame.[1] All of these properties combined yield the lowest annual heating and cooling costs. Using these properties as a guide, explore less expensive options to get to a product that fits your budget.

Triple-glazing, or three panes of glass each separated by an air or gas fill and warm-edge spacers, is a super insulator. Most standard Weinland Park replacement windows are only double-glazed. Double glazing can serve a home well, as the two panes of glass and inner fill buffers the cold air outside from penetrating the glass. Old windows were single-glazes and offered almost no barrier to the outside temperatures. The performance of double-glazing is greatly enhanced with an argon or argon-krypton combination fill, rather than the standard air fill.

The non-metal frame is almost non-negotiable. Metal is a conductor of heat, and a metal frame will conduct your Weinland Park home's heat right outside. Finally, Weinland Park replacement windows need a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.40 or better. Retrieved 2012-02-14
