TIPS FROM SEARS HOME IMPROVEMENT EXPERTS
When was the last time you looked at your house from the outside and said, “Wow, I love my home’s windows?” Or, have you recently commented that there was a cool draft or hot air seeping inside your home through the windows? If either is the case (or both!) then perhaps it’s time for replacement windows.
Whether you’re looking for new replacement windows for energy efficiency or to spruce up the look of your home, the experts at Sears Home Services are ready to handle your job. If you’re like most homeowners, the mere thought of a big window project is daunting and you don’t know where to begin. Laura Elliott, Product Manager at Sears Home Services answered some of the top questions that customers ask.
If you’re considering replacement windows, check out these expert answers to your questions about energy efficiency, vinyl windows, double-pane windows, curb appeal and maintenance.
If your house has outdated windows, there’s a good chance you’re wasting energy. In the summer, you’re air conditioning the neighborhood, and in winter, wind whistles in through the window edges. You’ve been putting it off for years, but the time may have finally come to purchase new windows.
There are so many things to consider — style, materials, color, energy efficiency—you might not know where to start. It’s great to have a rep come to your home, listen to your needs and concerns, and help you make the right choice. Sears can do that, says Dave Lincon, a home improvement expert for Sears Home Services. He offers some tips on what to know before replacing your windows.
Maintain your home with these quick and easy tips for caulking, sealing and cleaning your windows.
Windows aren’t only a sizable investment, they’re a big part of the curb appeal of your home. It’s likely time to give your windows some much-needed TLC. Maintaining your windows not only helps protect your investment and beautify your home, but it also helps you defend your windows against extreme weather.

Before you decide on a service provider to install your new windows, you should ask these five questions.
The latest window innovations offer much more than just a pretty view. New windows are more durable, energy efficient and safe than ever. If you haven’t replaced your windows in the past 20 years, you might be surprised by how much has changed.
“Years ago, windows were just something to plug a hole, let in light and keep out the elements,” says Dave Lincoln, a home improvement expert for Sears Home Services.
While windows today still cover the basics, new innovations in window design mean they’ve also come a long way in terms of safety, energy efficiency, durability and aesthetics.
“Typically all windows manufactured today will do a better job reducing sound when compared to windows of a decade or century ago,” Lincon says.
Here’s a deeper look at how windows have improved.
Windows provide much more than just a good view. They can enhance the design of a home, help maintain indoor temperatures and help save on your power bill.
On the other hand, keeping old windows can leave you with air and moisture leaks, fading furniture, noise intrusion, and overuse of heating or cooling.
If you face any of these problems in your home, it’s time to update your windows. But with all the options available, it can be hard to decide what best suits your needs. To narrow down your options, start by figuring out what your home needs and how much you can spend.
Need help deciding which windows are right for your home? Here’s what you need to know before you buy.
Bad windows can mean bad news—leaks, poor insulation and infestations. You might find that your frames have rotted, that your heat runs nonstop or that highway traffic leaves you with sleepless nights.
If your energy bills are higher than average, the extra costs might be passing through leaky windows.
Nobody wants to spend 30 percent more on energy bills because their windows are like sieves. While the most effective solution is to get energy efficient vinyl replacement windows—with high-performance features, such as double-paned gas-filled glass or low-e and spectrally selective glass coatings—here are a few other things to try:
- Seal air leaks with a combination of caulk and weatherstripping.
- Adhere clear plastic sheets to interior window frames to reduce drafts.
- Hang lined curtains or shades that insulate windows in cold weather and deflect sunlight in hot weather.
- Add awnings over windows that receive the most sun.
- Install weatherized storm windows on your home’s interior or exterior, or seal existing storm windows.
