By / Blog / Comments Off on Chilly? Old Windows Could Be To Blame

Having trouble staying warm during this northwest winter?  Below are reasons why your inefficient old windows could be the source!

  • Over 50% of heat loss in a typical house occurs through the windows and doors.
  • Heat conducted through glass and frames can lose the equivalent of a pint of oil every day for each window.
  • Air infiltration due to a crack 1/16th inch wide in an average window frame is the equivalent of having a hole in your wall the size of a brick.  In an average house this is like having a hole the size of 15 bricks.
