Are you looking for window replacement in Anaheim, CA?

Buying Replacement Windows in Anaheim, California

Although most windows have a very long life, there are a few signs it may be time to replace the windows in your home in Anaheim, California. If your windows are difficult to open or close, if you find moisture in between windows panes, or if your windows seem to be allowing air or moisture into your home, it is time to buy new windows.

Window replacement is a big investment, but one that will benefit you in the long run. Energy efficient, fully operational windows will save you money on your heating and cooling bills and increase the resale value of your home. Because of this, it is important you purchase the right windows, windows that will perform well in Anaheim’s unique climate. In addition to the climate, there are specific permit and licensing requirements put in place by the city government that should be considered before making a window purchase or having them installed in your home.

In this article, we will help you gain the knowledge you need to choose the windows for your home and hire a contractor. We will cover the basic information about the operational and design differences between windows, different ways you can pay for windows, the permit and licensing requirements for installing windows in an Anaheim home, and how you can select the right window for the climate in your city.

Basic Information About Buying Windows in Anaheim

Before you consider the climate of your city, there are a few basics things you will need to decide about the windows you plan to buy. First, you will need to determine whether new construction or replacement windows are appropriate for your home. Since new construction windows are specifically designed to be attached directly to the studs and frame of your home, they are only appropriate for projects where the frame will be exposed. In comparison, replacement windows are custom built to fit exactly in the space left behind by your old window. Because of this, they are most appropriate for projects where no structural changes are being made to the surrounding wall.

The second thing to consider is how the windows you buy need to function in your home. If they are simply a means of bringing more light into your home, a non-operational window like a picture or arched window would be the best choice. If you need a fully operational window, one that opens to allow fresh air into the home but protects your home from extreme temperature changes or inclement weather, a double-hung window might be the best choice. Double-hung windows are constructed from two vertically hung sashes with one sliding upwards to open and the other downwards.

The last considerations are which design elements will fit best with the style of your home. Window frames can be made from wood, vinyl, aluminum, and fiberglass materials, and they are available in numerous color finishes. Window hardware is also available in a variety of finishes and there a multiple glass grid designs to choose from.

Requirements for Replacing Windows in Anaheim, California

Unless you plan to replace the windows in your home yourself, you will need to find a contractor to install your new windows. In Anaheim, since window replacement is considered to be a major home alteration, any contractors installing windows in homes within the city must have a general builder’s license. This license can be obtained from the Building Division of the Anaheim Planning Department. Contractors who have employees working under them are also required to carry workers’ compensation that covers any medical costs or the expenses associated with missing working if one of their employees is injured on the job.

Before purchasing your windows, your contractor will need to obtain a building permit for the improvements being made to your home. Permits can be purchased by calling the Building Division of the Anaheim Planning Department at 714-765-5139.

Paying for Windows in Anaheim

Like the rest of the United States, tax credits and rebates available to homeowners making energy efficiency home improvements expired in 2014. Because of this, you will need to use more conventional methods for paying for their windows. The best option is to save up and pay cash in full. If this is not an option, you can also apply for a zero interest credit card or a home equity line of credit.

The prices of windows vary greatly, but you can create a loose budget knowing that vinyl replacements average between $450 and $600 each while wood windows average between $800 and $1000 each. Fifty to $100 for each window should also be included in your budget since this is the estimated cost of window installation.

Buying Windows for the Climate in Anaheim, California

According the ENERGY STAR®, Anaheim is located in the south central climate zone. Homeowners located in this climate zone can expect to use both their heating and cooling systems, depending on the time of the year. The climate in Anaheim is characterized by mild winters, with an average low of 48 degrees in January. However, the summers can be warm, with an average high of 89 degrees in August.

It is important to find a window that is appropriate for the unique climate in Anaheim and the simplest way to do that is by understanding the ratings provided on the National Fenestration Council label located on every window. On this label, you will find the U-Factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, Visible Transmittance, and Air Leakage ratings.

The first rating, the U-Factor, is used to communicate how much heat can leave or enter a home through the window. A high U-Factor number mean the window is not resistant to extreme temperature changes. Because of this, it is best to buy windows with a low rating, and ENERGY STAR® requires all replacement windows purchased for Anaheim homes to have a U-Factor of no more than 0.30.

The second rating, the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, is used to represent the amount of solar radiation that can pass through a window. If the window will be used in a cold environment, solar radiation can help to heat the home. However, the climate in Anaheim is warm and solar radiation can overheat the home. Because of this, a low SHGC is the best choice for Anaheim homes. ENERGY STAR® requires all replacement windows purchased to have a SHGC of 0.25 or less.

The last two ratings on the NFRC label are Visible Transmittance and Air Leakage. The Visible Transmittance rating represents the glass area of the window and the size of the view it provides. ENERGY STAR® doesn’t have an Visible Transmittance requirements, so this is a decision you can make solely based on your personal preferences. The Air Leakage rating represents the amount of air that passes through a specific window. In Anaheim, ENERGY STAR® requires homeowners to purchase replacement windows with an Air Leakage rating of more than 0.30.

If you are a homeowner living in Anaheim, know that the quality of the windows you purchase for your home will influence your monthly utility expenses and the resale value of your home. According to ENERGY STAR®, you can expect to save approximately $126 on heating and cooling costs each year. In addition to financial savings, purchasing energy efficient windows will allow you to live a more sustainable life by decreasing your use of nonrenewable energy sources.
