Typically, windows account for the most surface area in your home's envelope openings. And when you have old or inefficient windows, air leaks can make the temperatures inside uncomfortably chilly during the winter — not to mention the added wear on your HVAC system as it struggles to maintain the set temperature.

Call us to walk you thorough the particulars of the job and ask them specifics about their installation process. Here are four key practices installers should use during winter window replacements:

2. Use plastic floor-to-ceiling barriers: For larger openings, the installer should cover the opening with plastic floor to ceiling barriers. One example is installing bay or bow window, which are made of several windows such as double pane and picture windows.

3. Keep doors closed: When replacing a window, the installer should keep the door to that room closed, limiting the amount of cold air that can find its way into adjoining areas of the home.

4. Cleanliness practices: Along with winter cold comes mud, whether from rain or snowfall. Installers should use tarps, shoe-covering booties and other practices to ensure your home remains clean.
