Climate Seal Nor' easter
Nor’easter is No Match for Climate Seal – Gas Heat Usage Drops!
I have been in my home since 2001 and every winter we get a Nor’easter that comes through with 30-50 MPH cold winds and my heating system (in-wall convection radiators) has never been able to keep the home up to the set temperature RUNNING FULL TIME. When our first one blew through a couple of weeks ago, I didn’t feel drafts and the heat never had a problem maintaining (or raising) the temperature. My window inserts from Climate Seal didn’t budge. I imagine that it has to do with the design that gives it some floating space within the frame.
I have seen my monthly gas heat usage for January drop about 12% with the average temperature being 32° F both this year and last (as it shows on the gas bill) despite having work and school from home which would normally have the bill increase. I would estimate that I would be saving somewhere close to 20% on my energy bill compared to my old storm windows and seasonal “shrink plastic window films.” I have been able to keep my beautiful, original “period correct” and secure steel windows thus maintaining my home’s resale value. The work quality was approved by the Maryland Historic Preservation for an additional 20% tax credit. I only wish I had known about this years ago! A great investment, keeps the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer, are virtually invisible, can be taken out in an instant on nice days and the customer service has far exceeded what you ever see these days. A family-owned business really shows how they take pride in their work. They worked with me extensively on discussing options to ensure I had exactly what this old house needed. My hat is off to Matt and his team.
The windows look great and now we can look out at the beautiful snowfall without being reminded of the cold outside!
