Single pane windows are really a pain. And that’s just what our customer was feeling due to old drafty windows. Cold air circulated throughout the 1950 log home making it uncomfortably cold in the winter and too hot during the summer. The home is part of the Cascade Raptor Center. The owner had originally called Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver because the dog had accidentally broken one of the windows.


Josh performed an energy check-up on the home and found that it would be a good idea to replace all 10 of the windows instead of just the one because they were so old and not energy efficient.

“Josh was so helpful in laying out all of our options. He even found us a rebate on the windows if we replaced our electric oil-filled radiators with a ductless heat system.”

Even though log homes can prove challenging because of the thick walls, Josh and his crew worked diligently and when they were finished they walked the customer to each window to make sure they were delighted.

“I loved working with Josh Lowe’s Dr. Energy Saver and would recommend them to anyone wanting to live in a comfortable home. Josh donated 40% of the work performed because we are a small non-profit. After rebates and his generous donation, we paid half of what it would normally cost.”

Replacing old windows not only increases the value of a home but also reduces heating and cooling bills.
