Nearly 2 months ago, I started trying to place an order to get more of our windows replaced. The overall goal is improved energy efficiency, but a sub-goal of that is being able to open them in nice weather. There were only a few windows in the whole house that could be opened when we bought our home.
The last week has been of such a fair weather that, if we’d had even one window on the north side of the house that we could open, we wouldn’t have needed to run the heater or air conditioning the whole week. Instead, afternoon high temps have driven the internal house temperatures into the uncomfortable zone and forced us to activate the air conditioning system. Yes, I am calling the window people again today to see about getting that order placed – I want those windows in before we have the same type of weather this fall. We’re ready, once again, to order 4 windows for certain, and if they keep dragging their heels on reopening the local office, we’re going to soon be ready for 5. That’s 1/3rd of our remaining windows all at one time.
