Around 30 billions dollars in energy is wasted through inefficient windows, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Leaky windows are a contributor to that loss, accounting for more than 25 percent of average home energy costs, also according to the U.S. Department of Energy. If you feel drafts in your home, or if your house is very cold despite the functioning heater being turned up, or if your windows rattle in the wind, you likely need replacement windows. Other signs you should consider replacement windows are if your window panes collect condensation, frost or ice. Replacement windows are expensive but professionally installed window film can cost considerably less. And that is just the windows in our homes I am writing about.
I discovered quickly that in the cold climate of Rochester windows were much bigger business than they were in my native California. I learned a lot about windshields very quickly after moving here and having daily issues with viability while driving my car. I investigated different companies for window tinting Rochester NY had to offer, I investigated different options for windshields including Aquapel. In the end decided the best thing for me was to get Aquapel glass treatment.
Wikipedia explains that Aquapel is a rain repellent glass treatment that consists of fluorinated compounds which create a chemical bond with glass surfaces, causing water to bead up and then roll off. Because of this chemical bond with glass, Aquapel is reported to last much longer than silicone based rain repellents. Aquapel claims to be long lasting and to significantly improve vision. As I am new to driving in the east coast weather, and since the windshield in my new car is never clear enough, I am going to try Aquapel. That sounds like a good way to keep moisture out.
