No matter where you live, energy efficiency is an important part of living an eco-friendly lifestyle, but it’s especially important when you’re a homeowner. Energy efficient windows keep your home comfortable during the long, cold winter season, but they can dramatically reduce your energy bill each month. Although all of our window styles can be ENERGY STAR energy efficient, awning, casement, picture and basement windows tend to be the most effective. Proper sealing and installation are important components to consider when investing in energy efficient windows. Though the investment can be a significant initial cost, remember that these windows will pay for themselves over time in energy savings.
Energy efficient windows have a wealth of benefits including reduced utility bills, consistent and comfortable temperature control, durability and a reduced carbon footprint. Choosing vinyl construction opposed to standard wooden construction provides more thermal protection and longevity. Multiple glass panes add layers of reinforcement against hot and cold air, leaks and warping. Typically filled with non-toxic argon gas, the spaces between the window panes work to prevent heat transference. In addition, window glass can be treated to reflect heat without blocking natural light.
From the living room to the bathroom, energy efficient windows are a practical solution for the entire home. Keeping your energy bills down and comfort up can be best achieved by ensuring that all of your windows are energy efficient, regardless of size and style. If you’re not ready for a full-home replacement, choosing to replace windows that receive the most contact with the elements and the most sun exposure can be a great start to see results.
