If eyes are the windows to the soul, what are windows? The eyes of a home?
Like eyes, they do open and close. And when they're 60-year old single pane aluminum frame jobs, they even weep.
This condensation is a bad sign of how inefficient they are, and the corresponding high heating bills are enough to make us cry. We should have replaced them first thing, but I got sort of strung along by this guy who kept dangling some nice windows initially advertised as "free" in front of me, and even after I agreed to pay for them he never set a price or timeline, so Sarah finally sourced various bargains on five used double pane 4x6 vinyls--two picture and three sliders.This is the second one I replaced in the past week. The first went a lot easier but in any event the effect on the indoor temperature was immediately apparent. It feels warmer already and the heaters are running much less frequently. Winning!
|It was all handtools on deck for window extraction and to expand rough opening. Makita party!|
Two down, three to go, and we still need to find a few more smaller ones, but this has been a good start.
Here's looking at you!
