As we settle into winter, the temperature continues to drop. But with a decrease in temperature often comes an increase in utility bill costs. You’ll want to ensure that your windows are properly maintained throughout the duration of the coming months so that you won’t be paying any additional fees due to poor installation.
With the right window maintenance, you won’t have to worry about cold drafts or astronomical energy bills.
Casa Bella Windows & Doors has been a proud window manufacturer since 1977 serving Mississauga, Oakville, and the Greater Toronto Area. We are committed to delivering outstanding customer service and providing installation processes that exceed industry standards.
We’re also committed to keeping our customers safe from breaking the bank by keeping them warm with our high quality energy efficient windows. Take a look at our tips on how to stay warm this winter with a little window maintenance.
Seal Your Windows
Icy winter drafts can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare. Not only do they affect your comfort level, but they also affect your wallet.
For this reason, be sure to seal all of your windows, filling in any gaps and eliminating unwanted cold air. It’s a cost-effective way to increase your home’s energy efficiency.
As a leading manufacturer of windows and doors in Mississauga we provide the best solutions to Canadian winter problems.
An energy efficient style of window that we love is the Casement Window. Our Casement Windows offer the ultimate combination of energy efficiency, convenience, and ease of operation.
They have a multi-point locking system that provides a superior weather-tight seal and added security.
Treat Your Windows
The right blinds, shades, or curtains can make an incredible impact on your home’s energy efficiency.
Cellular shades are the most energy efficient window treatment you can buy. They contain a series of cell pockets to trap the air that exits around your windows, keeping your rooms warm all throughout the winter.
Keep Your Windows Clean
Windows facing the south side of your home should be regularly cleaned to maintain maximum solar gain. Let that winter sunlight shine through as much as possible with crystal clear windows.
You’ll also want to optimize the sunlight on that side of your home with big, spacious windows.
Casa Bella Windows & Doors offers a wide selection of beautiful bay and bow windows.
Bay or bow windows add a dramatic accent and contour to your home while simultaneously increase the natural sunlight in the room.
They can be made with a variety of fixed and operating Casement windows to ensure that there is tight weather sealing and protection from the climate outside.
They are incredibly low maintenance as they come with vinyl frames, and we offer colours in Sandalwood, White, Driftwood, and Ivory.
Replace Windows and Doors
Sometimes the best solution to a drafty winter home is to replace your windows completely, especially if your home is on the older side. If you’re noticing that your utility bill gets higher each year, it might be time to not only replace the windows in your home, but the doors, too.
Get your windows and doors replaced in Oakville and all over the GTA at Casa Bella. None of our products are mass-produced and we pride ourselves on never outsourcing or sub-contracting installation.
