When renovating your home, choosing the best available window replacements is one of the most important things you can do. The cold Winnipeg climate makes it important to choose the most durable and energy efficient option available. Thankfully, the NorthShield Windows and Doors team is here to help make that process easier.
One of the biggest concerns when choosing new windows is condensation, caused by the difference between your home's humidity and the humidity outside your home. It's important to keep our homes at a humidity level that's comfortable for us—air too dry can also damage many items within the home—which makes it equally important to consider these issues when choosing your window replacements in Winnipeg.
Of course, condensation doesn't look pretty, but there are several more important problems it can cause. It starts by degrading your windows and contributes to peeling paint and rotting wood. However, the really frightening thing about condensation is that it can cause black mould, which can lead to a number of serious health problems, especially respiratory problems.
Luckily over the years window technology has made significant advances, so you can now choose windows that not only protect your home more efficiently but also prevent condensation from forming on the glass.
Health Smart Windows prevent condensation by keeping the temperature of the window surface as close to the temperature of your home as possibly. Most windows use entirely metal frames, but metal is constantly losing heat, sapping heat from your windows. Health Smart Windows use metal for their frames as well, but seal it with a layer of foam underneath. This foam, called the Super Seal locks the heat from your home into the metal, which helps it keep the windows themselves warmer as well.
The advantages of the Super Seal don't end there. Health Smart Windows last a significantly longer time than any other windows and are far more energy efficient than other windows, making them the best choice for your Winnipeg window replacements.
When you call NorthShield Windows and Doors for your Health Smart Windows you can be sure you've made the best decision possible so you can enjoy your Winnipeg home comfortably for years to come. The right professional to install your windows is just as important as making sure you have the right windows to begin with. After all, you don't want to end up paying for the installation of your new windows twice. Of course, there's also something to be said for the lifetime warranty we offer on all our windows.
