 Re: Use Renewal By Andersen

Author: JackA (---.esr.east.verizon.net)
Date:   

I have had several sales people out to my house selling various vinyl replacement windows. Andersen is coming out tomorrow evening. I am having trouble finding any information on the Schuco windows that seem to be the favorites of the website. Their site doesn't list any energy efficiency ratings at all. I like the look of the Andersen windows, more glass area less vinyl area, more like a wooden original window. Their website clearly lists all of their energy ratings. It is so hard to get ratings on any windows, it is almost impossible for a consumer to really research windows. The NFRC's website is horrible. They give you a database to search through that contains hundreds of windows from each manufacturer. When you drill down on double hung Milgard window you get something in the neighborhood of 150 records -- all different windows, and guess what, all different U factors. How do you even know when your sales person is selling you windows x that you don't end up with window -- with a totally different U factor. I am beginning to think the entire industry is corrupt. A consumer cannot even see his product before he plunks down 5 or 10 thousand dollars. I want to see the windows I buy with their nice little efficiency ratings printed on each one before they install them. I have not had one sales person who was willing to write that into my contract. I have bought cars for less money than some of these sales people are quoting, and I knew absolutely everything thing there was to know about them. With these windows, there is no guarantee as to even what rating the one that will arrive at your house will have. Also, how much energy can they really save? They are just being slid into your existing, and likely crappy, un-insulated 50-year-old frames.
