Managing Energy Costs Often Starts With Simple Solutions Such as Taking Care of Doors & WindowsFeatured PR

Kansas City based doors and windows replacement/maintenance service provider says it is possible drastically reduce energy consumption by weather sealing your doors and windows

Doors and windows should be replaced to not only maintain aesthetic appeal, but also to reduce energy costs. Small gaps around doors and windows allow heat to escape. It is estimated that overlooking these seemingly minor issues cause homeowners to use almost 30% more energy.

"Unintentional air flow (caused by air leakage) is a major problem in most homes. It usually lost through joints, frames, sashes, and cracks in windows. Sometimes, the make and material of the window can cause unintentional air flow. But simple solutions such as weather stripping, installing dual/triple paned glasses, using better core materials, etc. can prevent air from escaping," says a spokesperson for Bordner Install.

There are several energy efficient materials like aluminum, vinyl, fiberglass, composite etc. that can be used. But not all of them are suited across environments- it takes an experienced eye to ascertain which one works where. Customers will have to make sure that they are advised about the pros and cons of every material they are shown.

For instance, wood, fiberglass and vinyl perform better when compared to metal frames. The latter do not provide a thermal break- a process where the flow of the heat is broken. Dual pane glasses maintain an inert gas like carbon dioxide, argon, etc. to cut the heat that is transferred from the sun without affecting the light that passes through the glasses.
