Replacement windows and savings in Decatur, IL
As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to consider their energy efficiency. Of course that is typically centered on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the advancements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can offer much more than their own energy efficiency and can impact your monthly energy costs.
You could ask – “So how is this?”
Essentially, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can help keep heat out during the hotter months and cold out during the winter. Doing so means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can be reduced as well, saving you money over time.
When you think it through, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a huge impact on the amount 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 improvement of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, may help reduce the amount of unwanted heat that makes its way in to your home.
Depending on how long it has been since your home last had replacement windows installed, you may potentially be losing a lot of indoor air via leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
