Benefits of Completing Glass Repair and Installation Projects in the Fall

Glass Specialist Availability

The busiest seasons for Glass Doctor of Barrie’s specialists are spring and summer because of the warmer weather. Fortunately, the weather doesn’t have to dictate all your home improvement projects. The slower seasons are among the best times of year to update your windows, order custom glass décor, and schedule a glass repair because we can begin projects sooner.

Save Energy

During the cold months of the year, the majority of energy expenses go towards heating homes. According to The Nest, the heat that homes lose through their windows can amount to 25 percent of heating costs. If you have older windows, upgrading them with high-efficiency units, such as double pane windows, can save you up to 15 percent on energy expenses. If window replacements aren’t in your budget, low-emissivity window films offer similar benefits at a fraction of the cost.

When you notice fog or drops of water forming between your double or triple pane windows, this indicates the seal is broken. The space between the panes of glass in these types of windows reduces heat losses. If the seal breaks, the window loses its ability to prevent energy transfers, which could drive your heating costs.

Added Comfort

No one likes to sit next to a drafty window. When you schedule a glass repair or upgrade your windows, you will ensure the comfort of your family and the guests who visit. Window repairs and the quality insulated glass units at Glass Doctor of Barrie reduce energy transfers, better ensuring that every room in your home feels equally cozy.

Improved Productivity

Imagine how much simpler life would be (and how great your home would look) with custom glass pieces that boost your productivity. Glass tabletops on desks and tables make writing and cleaning easier. Custom glass shelves increase your home’s storage capabilities and look sleek. Glass Doctor of Barrie has a variety of custom glass décor that serve as the perfect complement in any home.

It won’t be long before your calendar fills with holiday and end-of-the-year activities. Now that the kids are back in school, your schedule might seem less chaotic. Take advantage of the downtime and schedule your complimentary consultation with Glass Doctor of Barrier before the hustle and bustle of the holidays commence.
