Installing new windows in your home is a great way to increase the beauty of your home, but did you know it can also save you money? Old, worn-out windows don’t just look unappealing, but they also do a poor job of insulating your home. Having cracks in your window frames and old, untreated glass can be a big part of the reason your energy costs are unreasonably high. Not only do old windows allow your air conditioning to escape, but they are ineffective at blocking sun rays that can harm your carpet and furniture.
Have you ever felt a draft coming into your home near your windows? Maybe you’ve noticed a discoloration in your carpeting or furniture in areas where a lot of sunlight comes in? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you could benefit greatly from energy efficient windows.
New advancements in window technology have allowed consumers to significantly reduce their energy costs. Products like Energy Star windows use multiple panes of specialized glass to reduce the air-flow in and out of your home. By preventing the air-flow, you are able to retain your air conditioning in the summer heat or keep cold air from seeping in the winter. Additionally, they contain a coating that blocks harmful UV rays that can damage furniture and heat up your house, causing a loss in energy efficiency.
Your home should be where you are most comfortable. Dealing with cool drafts and the hot sun are things that are best left outdoors. But, not only could new windows make your environment more comfortable, they can give you peace of mind knowing your monthly energy bill will be significantly lower. Additionally, new energy efficient windows will add to the value of your home, allowing you to eventually recoup your investment.
