Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Washington DC, DC

Published on

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

You could ask – “So how is this?”

If you break it down, when you invest in superior windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can help keep heat out during the warmer months and cold out during the colder months. By doing so, the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can decrease as well, saving you money over time.

When you break it down, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a great impact on the volume of heat and/or air leaving your home via leaky windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the advancement of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, might help lower the amount of unwanted heat that enters in to your home.

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