What Some Window Companies Don't Want You to Know


There are more than a few window companies that advertise low introductory prices for windows and installation services.  The problem is that the total price can be much more than what you had expected.  So when you're shopping for energy-efficient windows, keep the following in mind:


1. Find out if they charge extra to remove or dispose of existing windows.


Some window companies offer you a price on installation only.  They don't mention that you end up paying an extra $30 to $100 for them to remove and dispose of an older window.


2. Find out if the windows you are buying include LoĒ glass or Argon.


LoĒ (Low E Cubed) is a type of window glass with a clear coating that reflects heat, but allows light to stream in.  This means that it lets sunlight in, but keeps heat out, which keeps your energy bills low.  Argon gas is also used in windows as insulation.


Some companies fail to mention that when they sell you a replacement window, they don't use LoĒ glass or Argon unless you pay extra.  If you don't pay for them, you don't get all of the insulation benefits that can lower your energy bill.  But that's not the only downside of buying windows without those features.


If you buy windows without LoĒ glass, you more than likely can't qualify for tax credits.  Homeowners that replace their windows with LoĒ glass energy-efficient windows have been able to receive up to $1,500 in tax credits in the past.


Some companies do not include LoĒ glass or Argon in their promotionally priced windows, and will charge you anywhere from $50 to $100 extra for this.


3. Find out if a half-screen is included in the promotional price.


As you probably know, it's nice to be able to open your windows when the weather is nice, or just to air out your home once in a while.  But an open window with no screen can also be an invitation for mosquitoes, roaches, and other pests.  A half-screen not only keeps most bugs out, but it prevents leaves, dust and other debris from getting into your home.


There are some window companies that won't tell you that half-screens aren't included with the "promotional" price that you've been offered.  Need a half-screen for your new window? There's a good chance you will have to pay extra for that.
