Replacement Windows Protect Inverness Home from the Scorching Florida Heat

Charles Lachance’s house windows were more than 30 years old. In terms of energy efficiency, having them on his Inverness, Florida, home was like “throwing money out the window,” he said. So, when he heard a radio advertisement about a special windows promotion that Fairbanks Construction was offering, he decided to give the company a call.

Upon having replacement windows installed, the Lanchances quickly saw that the windows did make a significant difference in helping to keep their home cooler by providing them with the added insulation they wanted.
