This homeowner called us out to their home to take a look at a serious problem they were experiencing. The original problem was that these homeowners had a large mold problem in their attic. While conducting our Full Home Energy Evaluation we noticed that they had a very old, corroded wooden basement window.We asked the homeowner if they were paying a high heating bill, and they agreed that they were. We assessed the mold problem, and used our Dr. Energy Saver treatments to resolve this. Next we had to explain to this customer that an old wood basement window in a stone foundation are very inefficient. When this type of window is in a stone foundation it allows a lot of heat to escape buy conduction through the cold glass. This is because a home has lower air pressure at the bottom, the basement, and sucks a great deal of cold air in from the exterior of the home. Another issue that was occurring was because of the damn environment near the ground, causing rot on the existing window. Now we know what we need to do.
To fix this basement window, we know that we need to fully replace the entire window with our Dr. Energy Saver High Efficiency Window. We must first remove the old window, and frame completely. We make sure to clean and properly prep the window area for a new window to be put in. The next thing we do is install our new High Efficiency Windows. These windows are double pained, with a special metallic coating on top to reduce heat flow in or out through the glass. The last step is to seal the window with our window and door foam! These windows will never rot, rust, or need to be repainted. Now that this new window is set and put in these customers can live more healthy, happy, and energy efficient in their home!
