HOW CAN I SAVE ON MY HEATING BILLS THIS WINTER?
By doing some simple things! Caulk around your windows and doors and seal all cracks. Add some insulation to the attic. Even putting plastic on your windows is a very inexpensive way to save. Items like a digital set back thermostat that costs $80 and could save hundreds of dollars and make your living environment very comfortable.
ARE ALL WINDOWS CREATED EQUAL?
Not in your wildest dreams! Going for a low price gimmick will give you one guarantee – a low priced, low quality window. It appears from just looking at the window that there is no difference, but BUYER BEWARE. The guts (the working parts) are not going to last. Problems are guaranteed. Get a look at a real quality window that will last a true lifetime!
