You don’t have to live in New Jersey very long to realize there are more than four seasons. Along with winter, summer, spring and fall, New Jersey residents also experience flying insect seasons that bring the arrival of sand fleas, biting green-headed flies, mosquitos and other annoying flying and biting pests.
If you want to open your windows to enjoy a refreshing breeze, insect screens are an integral part of the replacement window decision process. It pays to take your time and make the right choice here. Some inferior window screens have larger “holes” that can be an open invitation for pests to come right in and make themselves at home.
If you’re a homeowner who wants to upgrade existing windows or you’re thinking about adding screens after a replacement window project, use the following tips to decide which insect screens are best for your family and your lifestyle.
Don’t Put the Welcome Mat Out for Unwanted “Guests”
Insect screens ought to keep unwanted critters outdoors where they belong – without limiting fresh air and sunshine from flooding into your indoor spaces when you open the windows. Replacement window insect screens are part of your Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey operable window package.
Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey Insect Screens; Not Your Average Screen
Have you ever opened a window in your home and found a pile of dead bugs between the glass and the screen? Chances are your window screens did not fit properly or the fabric weave was loose enough to allow small insects to crawl through the screen.
Tiny flying insects like gnats, fleas, and midges are attracted by indoor lights after dark. If the insect screen fabric weave is too loose, these tiny invaders can sneak through your screens. When you open the sash, these almost imperceptible critters often escape detection until you feel the bite.
An insect screen with a solid fabric won’t allow you to enjoy a clear view of the outdoors or feel the cool summer breezes. Compared to other insect screens, Renewal by Andersen TruScene® insect screens provide more clarity (as much as 50% more) and allow you to control ventilation and sunlight levels in your home.
