Replacement Windows Do More Than Make Your Home Look Good

Replacement windows are like clothing. You may choose your clothing primarily because you like the fabric, colors, and cut of the design, but you wear clothing for other reasons.
For example, your blue jeans make you look good, but they also block cold air and dirt from your legs. Your blouse may be pretty to look at, but it also keeps you from being naked at the office. You have new windows installed in your home for the same reasons.
When you replace older windows with newer windows, they do make your home look good, but they also keep the outside air out, and the inside air in. You do not heat or cool the outside flowerbeds when you new, energy efficient windows replace older drafty windows in every room of your home.

Unfortunately, removing this program can be quite difficult because of the way it’s been designed to “embed” itself onto your system.
