Windows: Evaluate/Fix/Install

October 27, 2018 at 8:22 am / by

Energy efficient windows are an important consideration for both new and existing homes. Window heat gain and window heat loss are responsible for 25%–30% of residential heating and cooling energy use, according to Energy.Gov.

If you are selecting windows for new construction or replacing existing windows, it’s critical to choose the most efficient windows you can afford and that work best for our Bay Area climate.

If your existing windows are in good condition, taking steps to reduce energy loss can make your home much more comfortable and save money on energy bills.

Beckner Energy Upgraders helps reduce window energy loss and improve the comfort of your home by:

Sealing existing windows to increase energy efficiency. As part of Beckner Energy Upgraders’ Home Energy Assessment and Advanced Home Energy Upgrade process, we first examine and test all of your windows for air leaks, then caulk and weatherstrip, per your approval.

Replacing existing windows with new and improved energy-efficient windows. As part of Beckner Energy Upgraders’ Home Energy Assessment and Advanced Home Energy Upgrade process, we discuss the various window types, pros and cons, features, benefits, cost, and energy performance (i.e.: Energy Star-certified windows). Then install, per your approval.
