The windows installation by Jeff and Nick this morning/early afternoon went extremely well. They installed the 7 windows, attached screens, cleaned the windows, cleaned up the area, provided feedback on not finding any water damage (you never know in an older house), provided the warranty info and receipt.

When you turn on your air conditioner in the summer, you’re probably not thinking about what it will do for your allergies. In addition to keeping you cool on hot days, your air conditioner can actually reduce the allergens in your home.
In this clip from TV’s “The Doctors,” you’ll hear doctors discuss how air conditioners make life easier for allergy sufferers. A well-tuned air conditioner reduces the number of allergens in the home by lowering indoor humidity and filtering harmful particles out of the indoor air. In order for your air conditioner to achieve its optimal performance, it should have a high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter.
For more information on how an air conditioner can make your Sacramento home more comfortable, call the air conditioning experts at Clarke & Rush at (916) 604-4012. From plumbing to windows to home insulation, we provide all the services necessary for optimal home performance.

The benefits of replacing your windows are numerous. Not only can energy-efficient windows result in power savings, but upgraded windows can also be an aesthetic improvement for your space. If you are still unsure about whether new windows are right for you, read on for signs that your windows are due for replacement.
Window Seal Damage
If you are experiencing home drafts, you likely have a failing window or door seal. Broken seals can also allow additional noises from the outdoors to be more clearly heard inside. Luckily, both of these inconveniences can be remedied with new window units.
Ideally, your windows will open smoothly and cleanly and be operable by all family members. If your windows are sticking, refusing to swing open, or won’t go up and down, they can pose a serious threat in the event of a fire. Replace your windows to ensure that you have an efficient evacuation method if ever you are in need.
Increased Energy Bills
If you are experiencing increased energy bills, your windows may be responsible for your home’s failing energy performance. Updating your home’s windows to energy-efficient models can save you up to $465 a year in energy costs. Other indicators of a home’s inefficiencies include the feeling of window drafts and difficulty maintaining your home’s temperature.
Window Pane Fogging
Double or triple pane windows typically include a layer of air in between the glass panes to help insulate your home. If your windows are constantly clouded, it is likely that condensation has permeated the window’s glass seal. Unfortunately, a broken glass seal is often irreparable, particularly if your home’s windows are old or outdated. As such, if you are experiencing fogging, it’s time to replace your windows.
