Subject: Cambridge Door & Windows, Inc. Recommendation (October 26, 2009)

To Whom it concerns,

I researched alternatives for reducing my heating and air conditioning bill and after several weeks reached several ideas that might help. I then began my research for organizations that could help me with my goal of lowering my bill. Cambridge Windows and Doors Inc. was one of the companies that I called.  To my surprise they listened to my goal and my ideas on how to accomplish them.  I thought I need to do multiple things with a "radiant barrier" being high on my list. 

You should have seen my expression when Mike explained they would be happy to put a radiant barrier in my attic but he began to ask me questions and he said that based on my responses that they would recommend increasing the attic insulation and to place a "tent" over the attic door sealing the attic from the interior of the house better.  I agreed to try this approach.  The cost of installing insulation and the tent were very reasonable and the proof was in the next electric bill which dropped by 11% in watts used to cool the house.  My son who sleeps upstairs stated the day after installation he had to use a blanket because it was cooler then it had been.  The thermostat had not been changed.  We have now raised the upstairs temperature by 5 degrees and are still more comfortable then before we installed the installation.   

I called Mike to thank him for the suggestion and we discussed other ideas.  The windows on our 11 year old home were single pain and we had 25 windows.  I knew that if they were double pain it would really help.  I was concerned that the investment was more than I could afford.  We really took some time and did considerable research on the alternatives.  Several years earlier we had placed solar tinting on the windows to help reflect the heat.  This did help but not as much as I was trying to accomplish.

We made the decision to install Showcase double pain LOE Windows.  The installation of 25 windows was completed in a week with very little interruption to the family. 

The first thing we notice is how quiet the house became.  The noise from the outside had all but vanished.  We could no longer hear someone slam a car door or cars driving by.  The windows had even a better surprise as our electric bill reduced by another 14% of watts used to cool the house as compared to the previous year for the same month. 

We are very please with the professional quality of the sales cycle, installation process and the results. 

We are being asked questions by our neighbors and friends and all we can say is if your goal is lower your cooling cost and get other benefits like a quieter home then you need to consider both insulation and tent in the attic pull down stairs and double pain windows.  If they ask about how please I was with the company we selected I tell them about my research and that we were very happy and please with the professionalism of the complete Cambridge team.
