Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Greensboro, North Carolina

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to think about their energy efficiency. Of course that is normally focused on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the developments in technology over the years, your replacement windows can offer much more than their own energy efficiency and could impact your monthly energy costs.

You might ask – “So how is this?”

Essentially, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can work to keep heat out during the warmer months and cold out during the cooler months. By doing so, the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can be reduced as well, saving you money over time.

When you break it down, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a huge impact on the amount of heat and/or air leaving your home due to unsealed windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the development of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, might help decrease the amount of unwanted heat that makes its way in to your home.

Depending on the length of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you may potentially be losing a lot of indoor air due to leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
