NewSouth Window Expands to a Walmart Location in New Tampa
NewSouth expands our retail locations to include the super Walmart store on Bruce B. Downs Blvd. in Tampa, Florida. Walmart shoppers are now able to experience the energy savings that new efficient uPVC vinyl windows will bring to their home, and wallets. Shoppers will also be able to test the windows, open and close the sashes and feel the protection that NewSouth’s glass offers, all in their neighborhood Walmart.
NewSouth manufactures high performance, energy efficient windows in their Tampa based factory. NewSouth’s wholesale division, Doers Window Manufacturing, has partnered with My Home Renovator (a division of HPN) to manufacture exclusive
Sashlite windows for additional dealers in Walmart locations state wide and nationally. For now, 7 locations will open in Florida and a national 50 city pilot program is in the works for next year. Therefore, NewSouth Windows manufactured right here in our hometown Tampa will be enjoyed by homeowners and Walmart shoppers in Ohio, Louisiana, Georgia, North Carolina, Texas as well as Florida.
Come by your neighborhood, Bruce B Downs Walmart, look for the My Home Renovator sign, and say hello.Posted in Community, Energy Conversation | Comments Off Posted on April 23, 2012 by amy
It’s wonderful to save money on anything that you use. It’s even better to save money, month after month AND reclaim some of the money you have already spent. When the sizable window tax credits disappeared after 2010, the void has been offset by our local energy companies stepping up and offering rebates on a menu of energy savings products including replacement windows. See the links below for rebate information from TECO and Progress Energy.
For us, here in south western and central Florida, the energy companies bear the name of Progress Energy and TECO. Many folks may not know, but despite the high energy bills we receive, (we call them monthly “Thank You” cards for the high energy prices we pay) our local energy companies want to partner with us to save energy. Our energy companies are working to keep up with an ever increasing demand for energy, especially during peak usage times, and any energy savings relieves helps tremendously.
This is especially true during the hot summer months in Florida and lowering the cooling demand is the goal of most utilities companies. If the peak cooling loads are minimized, additional generating capacity is not required. This benefits everyone, keeping rates down.
Replacing old windows with energy efficient ones is an enormous step to this end, which is why the rebates are put into place. Click below for more information on rebates available for window replacements from your window company.

According to head of Duke Energy, homeowners in the south need to brace themselves for increased energy costs in 2012. James E. Rogers, Duke’s chairman told consumers earlier this year to expect prices of energy to rise by a shocking 30% or more next year.
No one wants to spend more of their hard earned money on categories like electricity in the upcoming months, especially in an economy that dictates wise spending for all of us. And certainly, we Southern folk are not about to give up our creature comforts like air conditioning and heat. This is where efficiencies come in.
With new windows installed into your home, being energy efficient means that you lower costs on heating and cooling without sacrificing necessities like staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter. New double pane windows, especially when replaced with old aluminum, single pane windows, can save you at least 30% off of your heating and cooling bill. New windows will keep the heat where it belongs, and for most of the year in the south, that is outside. Additionally, many energy companies offer rebates for replacement windows installed, as does the United States government. For more information, call 813-626-6000 and ask about energy savings in 2012.
NewSouth Window gives back by helping the city of Tampa to “green up and clean up” an east Tampa city park. NewSouth Window Solution is proud to support the efforts of the Tampa Bay Housing and Community Partnership, to make our community and our neighborhoods a better place.Community | Leave a comment Posted on September 9, 2010 by admin
Waste and the Environment
We hear much talk about doing our part to protect the environment and how we should try to reduce our “carbon footprint”. What does that really mean, and how can we really make a difference?
We can do our part by making small changes to conserve energy and not add to needless carbon emissions that undermine our environment.
According to the US Department of Energy, cooling and heating our home uses more than energy dollars than any other system in our home. The Department of Energy states that in most cases, 45% of our utility bill goes for heating and cooling. New double pane energy efficient windows can make a huge difference.
