Obviously, there are many things that you need to take into account when choosing replacement windows for your San Jose home. Although exceptional aesthetic appeal is important, choosing those that offer superb reliability and energy efficiency should take higher priority. It is essential that the windows you install retain temperature effectively indoors to keep your utility bills – as well as your carbon footprint – at a minimum.
Quality material and workmanship is a must
Windows can be extremely wasteful of energy if they are fitted improperly, or are in a decrepit state. With homes that still use old heating systems, ill-fitted windows could mean that the house could never be warmed or cooled satisfactorily enough no matter how high or low the thermostat is pushed. Couple that with rising fuel prices, and you are likely to face a shocking utility bills every month.
