Getting Ready for Winter

Windows in the Winter

Winter House

Winter is  just around the corner! In Chicago the temperatures are dropping and  snow will be along any day.  With the cold and the time of year certain homeowner concerns crop up – namely the cold and window condensation.

Here are two amazing documents that you can read and download that give plenty of information on the causes and cures for condensation:

Condensation Fact Sheet

Cardinal Fact Sheet

Condensation

Condensation

Condensation isn’t caused by windows, but they often get the blame! Condensation is caused by humidity and temperature combining to hit  a ‘dew-point’ which is the moment when moisture in the air forms into water.  By following the instructions on the two fact sheets condensation can be radically reduced if not eliminated completely.

The Three Main Factors of Condensation

The lower the temperature the lower the dewpoint for moisture to form

 

 

humidityHumidity

As the temperature lowers outside it’s important to lower the humidity in the home.  If it gets to 20 below outside inside humidity should be lower than 15%.

Air Circulation

Air circulation can stop condensation forming – think of the mirror in your bathroom after taking a shower – allow air to circulate and the condensation dissipates.

 


Control the heat, control the humidity and control the air circulation and you will be controlling the condensation!


Don’t let the winter blues get to you – keep your home warm and insulated with Climate Solutions Windows & Doors.  Condensation is controllable with minimal adjustments that well ensure you have a dry and healthy home.

Vinyl Windows offer exceptional thermal performance and energy efficiency, in fact all Climate Solutions Windows & Doors can meet and exceed Energy Star standards.  What’s the big deal with Energy Efficiency?  Very simply it saves money on energy bills!  The vinyl has many chambers, which act as insulating pockets to help keep energy from transferring – something you can’t get with traditional wood windows.  Combine the super quality of our frames with the outstanding Low Emissivity Glass and you’ll see the true value of vinyl.

Deceuninck 2. Quality

Not all vinyl is the same and there are inferior products out there.  For our vinyl windows we use only the best:  Deceuninck Sunshield® Vinyl.  The Sunshield® Technology has superior weatherability and performance to regular vinyl that is more commonly used by other manufacturers.  It’s one of the reasons we’re so happy to offer our Lifetime Warranty covering the vinyl because we know it won’t pit, rot, warp, peel or have any defects and it’s the best available.  Another advantage of vinyl and the multi-chambered profiles is that they can be designed to significantly reduce sound transmittance in the home / office.  Climate Solutions Windows are not just assembled in America, they are proudly Made In America.

Vinyl is an amazing material for its customization options.  The possibilities of painting, laminates, woodgrains and real woodgrain finishes are huge, including our Full Spectrum Color Lab™.  From custom shapes to custom colors, if you can envision it a Vinyl Window can be made of it.

No Burning  5. Safety

Once your windows are installed you won’t want to worry about safety or have concerns about them being a fire hazard.  Firstly vinyl doesn’t splinter like wood, or have sharp edges that cut like aluminum.  It also has a unique and amazing quality that makes it as safe as possible in a fire, in that it cannot self-sustain a flame.  This means that without a constant source of ignition vinyl can’t burn, making a home with vinyl windows a safer home.
