What You Need to Know About Windows

Spring and summer is the perfect time to tackle this home improvement area and watch your air conditioning bills shrink. This is the time of year when many homeowners are looking to replace and upgrade their windows. Well designed and properly installed windows are important to maintaining temperatures inside your home.

EiEiHome spoke to “Stan the Window Man” from Consumer’s Choice Windows and Doors. Stan was extremely knowledgeable about windows and offered some great information and advice on his favorite topic.

A properly installed window is insulated with a barrier between the indoor and outdoor environments. Preventing the transfer of heat in either direction will be easier on your air conditioner and furnace, and therefore will be easier on your utility bills. Having your windows installed by a certified professional window contractor will give you peace of mind, knowing your window investment is done right. A supplier of primarily vinyl windows, Consumer’s Choice is a “Window Wise” certified installer, since 1995.

Consumer’s Choice windows are low maintenance, easy to clean, and have revolutionary “Neat Glass” panes. Neat glass stays cleaner by using UV light to loosen dirt and allow water to rinse it away. The UV light function works even on overcast days! When you do clean the glass, it is exceptionally easy. These windows come with a lifetime warranty, energy star approval, and CSA certification.

If required, a renovation through Consumer’s Choice can be financed with Enbridge (directly onto your bill) or privately through the company. Including interest, payments are as low as $50 a month for a $5000 project. Saving money on your energy bill each month will help make those payments a breeze.

There has never been a better time to invest in new windows. Currently, Consumer’s Choice professional window contractor is offering a manufacturer rebate program, with up to 40% off for a limited time.
