Air Infiltration and Why It’s a Problem
Keeping outside air out, and inside air in is a job left to the seals and barriers built into the windows and doors of our homes. The reasons why we need to limit the infiltration of outside air is obvious, we pay dearly to cool or heat the air in our homes and any that leaks out, is a pure waste of money.
Poorly designed windows that don’t have built-in airlocks, good weather-stripping, and
the barriers necessary to keep air from forcing its way in or out, are costing you money every day they remain in place. Without these efficient design features, air will push between the sash where it meets rails and around the sash perimeter. Older wooden and even aluminum or vinyl windows that were poorly designed should be replaced with more efficient modern windows.
At American Made Windows we know how uncomfortable a home with leaky windows can be. So, to keep you comfortable, our windows are designed with your comfort in mind. Test your current windows by feeling along the edges for drafts of warm air in summer or cold air in winter and then imagine your thermostat trying to keep up with regulating your home temperature all day and night.
Our windows are made here in America, providing jobs for families here at home and meet or exceed all government standards for efficiency.
With all the features and benefits that our windows have to offer, there’s no reason to put off getting new windows for your home.
