New Doors And Windows…

Give your home a breath of fresh air with new windows and doors.

The entry to your home is important. Your doors usually represent a focal point as visitors approach the house. A new front door can really improve your home’s esthetic appeal. Alongside a better appearance, a new door system generally means an increase in energy efficiency. New weather stripping means better insulation – something that is extremely important due to the wild swings in temperature we experience in the Ottawa region.

We can also offer you an abundance of screen door systems and solutions perfectly suited to your home. You will be amazed at how well a properly installed screen door can reduce the amount of time your Air Conditioner runs this summer. Take advantage of those cooler nights that Mother Nature gives us by letting your home breathe! A few hours of fresh, cool air at night is a great way to drop the interior temperature in a home. It is also the most efficient way to increase fresh air flow. Generally, outside air is much cleaner and healthier than the recirculated, stale air found within an enclosed system. If you don’t have air exchangers, new screen doors might just be the way to go.

Need new windows?

Everyone has heard that a new window system is a great way to improve a home’s energy efficiency. Additionally, older windows can require a lot of maintenance. In order to prevent rot, they generally have to be repainted relatively frequently. Over time, they can also warp and become difficult to open. This usually means we just leave them shut and run the A/C. Not only can this be detrimental in terms of efficiency, but it can also pose a serious risk in case of fire. Furthermore, older windows tend to fog up between the panes, blocking natural light and decreasing the enjoyment you can get from watching the world go by.

New Windows!!

The windows in your house let in light and air if they’re operable, but they can also be weak spots in your home’s thermal envelope.

When replacing windows, purchase the most energy-efficient windows you can afford, because they will pay for themselves over their lifetimes.

Windows provide our homes with light, warmth, and ventilation, but they can also negatively impact a home’s energy efficiency. You can reduce energy costs by installing energy-efficient windows in your home. If your budget is tight, energy efficiency improvements to existing windows can also help.

You can improve the energy efficiency of existing windows by adding storm windows, caulking and weatherstripping, and using window treatments or coverings.

Caulking and weatherstripping can reduce air leakage around windows. Use caulk for stationary cracks, gaps, or joints less than one-quarter-inch wide, and weatherstripping for building components that move, such as doors and operable windows.

If your home has very old and/or inefficient windows, it might be more cost-effective to replace them than to try to improve their energy efficiency. New, energy-efficient windows eventually pay for themselves through lower heating and cooling costs, and sometimes even lighting costs.

It is important to hire a good company like Kola Home Solutions to properly install your new window units.  Windows should be installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and be properly air sealed during installation to perform correctly. To air seal the window, caulk the frame and weatherstrip the operable components.

Another important consideration is how the windows operate, because some operating types have lower air leakage rates than others, which will improve your home’s energy efficiency. Traditional operating types include:

Awning. Hinged at the top and open outward. Because the sash closes by pressing against the frame, they generally have lower air leakage rates than sliding windows.

Casement. Hinged at the sides. Like awning windows, they generally have lower air leakage rates than sliding windows because the sash closes by pressing against the frame.

Fixed. Fixed panes that don’t open. When installed properly they’re airtight, but are not suitable in places where window ventilation is desired.

Hopper. Hinged at the bottom and open inward. Like both awning and casement, they generally have lower air leakage rates because the sash closes by pressing against the frame.

Single- and double-hung. Both sashes slide vertically in a double-hung window. Only the bottom sash slides upward in a single-hung window. These sliding windows generally have higher air leakage rates than projecting or hinged windows.

Single- and double-sliding. Both sashes slide horizontally in a double-sliding window. Only one sash slides in a single-sliding window. Like single- and double-hung windows, they generally have higher air leakage rates than projecting or hinged windows.

Windows, get your new windows!

When asked why they haven’t installed energy efficient windows in their home, most people usually say – because it’s too expensive. Few of us consider the amount of money we let float away every year right through the inefficient surfaces of our older windows. Each year, Ottawa residents waste thousands of dollars unintentionally heating their backyards and cooling their neighbourhoods.

Stop for a moment and try to put an image in your mind. Imagine that your home was on a far-away planet. Imagine that it needed to be protected from an inhospitable exterior environment. In actuality, this image isn’t far off from the truth. Ottawa’s freezing January’s suck the heat from your home – heat you pay dearly for with your hard earned money. Similarly, have you noticed how your electricity usage rises in the summer? It may be that much of the cool air being generated by your A/C unit is floating off into space. Windows are primary heat transfer locations on a home. Replacing your older windows with more efficient models can be the best choice for lowering your utility costs.

Something else that homeowners often fail to consider is the fact that older windows offer little interior protection from U/V rays and noise. Your carpet and furniture can be kept newer – longer when you change the windows on your home. What’s more, noisy traffic and neighbourhood sounds can keep you up at night. Newer windows offer far better noise reduction than their older counterparts. Think about changing your windows today – you will sleep better….and then you can dream about all the money you’re saving. Call Kola Home Solutions for a free quotation. And with our payment plans, it’s very affordable.
