Mission Viejo is the largest master planned communities in California and the second largest in the country. Its motto is "Make living your mission" and it sits in the Saddleback Valley, nestled against the beautiful mountain ranges to the north and east and a short drive from the ocean.
When you live in Mission Viejo, you know the meaning of the term 'living large' and you also know that with so much beauty surrounding you, there's a great deal to do and see, even on a daily basis. Depending on where you live in Mission Viejo, you could have some breathtaking views of the scenic region surrounding you.
That's why it's important to have windows that suit your home and allow you to capitalize on all of that beauty that surrounds you. Of course, if your current windows don't maximize efficiency or don't offer you the kind of views that you might get by stepping outside of your doors, then you might want to consider window replacement for your Mission Viejo home
What to think about when it comes to replacing your windows.
Too many homeowners don't fully understand what it means to replace the windows in their home. They might look at their current windows and realize that it's time to replace them, but that it's going to be a simple process. Just buy the same type of windows and the same size and you're all set. However, today's windows are much different than windows that were created more than thirty years ago, when Mission Viejo was first planned and built.
There are energy efficiency options to consider and while you know that the Orange County winters are mild, in comparison to other parts of the country, you also know how hot it can get living here. When you live inland in Southern California, the temperature can rise 40 degrees from the early morning temperature to the peak afternoon heat. With that constantly changing temperature, trying to save money on keeping your home warm during those cool winter nights or cool when the sun is at its hottest during the summer can be a challenge.
So one of the first things that you should consider when it comes to new windows is energy efficiency. How much you can save on your heating or cooling bills with the right new windows will all depend on the style and type of windows that you choose, as well as the brand. Some brands are just better than others when it comes to saving you money over the life of your windows.
When it comes to energy efficiency, even if you're only going to worry about keeping your home cool during the summer, running that air conditioning system can cost a lot of money, thanks to the rising cost of electricity. How about if you were able to retain more of that cool air that is generated?
Double sash windows that are sealed with gas, such as Argon or Krypton, will help to keep more of your cool air in during the summer and that warm air out. Yet there are other things that you can do as well to make the most out of your new windows, such as choosing Low-E windows. Low-E is a film that is placed on the glass of your new windows that cuts out many of the harmful UV (Ultraviolet) rays that cause your home to heat up. Coupled with the sealed windows, you will be enjoying a nice, cool home this summer and having to run your air conditioning system far less often than you ever have in the past.
How much could you save on your electricity bills with window replacement?
How much you can save would depend on a number of factors. First, it would depend on whether or not you had a very warm summer, or very cold winter. Second, it would depend on what temperature you keep your thermostat set during those hot summer days. If you like your home to be cool, such as around 68-degrees when it's 95 outside, then your air conditioning system is going to work harder.
However, if you raise that temperature to 74-degrees, then you're going to be running your air conditioning system less often. In any event, you could potentially save $40 a month or more on your electricity expenses because you won't have to be running that air conditioning system as often. Even a $20 savings every month can add up to $240 a year. Multiply that by all of the years that you own your home and you can quickly realize just how much money you can save by investing in replacement windows for your home. The more you save per month, the more those new windows will impact your budget for your Mission Viejo home.
