How to Tell if You Need New Windows
If you’re not certain that you need to replace your windows, there are several factors you should look at. According to Forbes, you should check and see if the windows are damaged, warped or broken. If this is the case, replacing the windows is preferable to trying to repair. Feeling strong drafts and noticing a rise in your energy bill are also signs that you should replace the windows. If you’re not certain if your windows are drafty, the Marvin website suggests running a lighted candle around the edges of your windows and doors. If the flame starts to flicker that’s a sign that you have a drafty window.
Marvin Windows and Energy Efficiency
If you’re looking for windows that are going to lower your energy bill, Marvin has what you’re looking for. When searching for windows you want to make certain that they’re certified by the Energy Star program. This is a Federal program that determines whether they meet energy efficiency standards, according to Marvin. You can tell if a window is certified if it displays the Energy Star label. Marvin offers a large number of products that meet Energy Star Standards. There are several factors that contribute to a high energy efficiency rating such as Low-E glass that reflect infrared light, gases such as argon and krypton that insulate between panes, multiple panes and quality frames and warm edge spacers.
Marvin also offers several products that receive Energy Star’s highest rating: Most Efficient. In order to receive this rating, products have to undergo rigorous tests that go beyond what’s required by regular Energy Star certification. In 2017, fifteen Marvin products were awarded this Most Efficient rating, according to Energy Star.
