Like most products, windows have improved significantly over the years. Today’s designs are better and more efficient than those of the past. Installing new, high-quality windows can increase the value of your home while helping you conserve energy and cut costs.
Innovations Siding & Windows has provided high-quality window installations for over 20 years. Below, their proficient installers discuss a few ways in which new windows can improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Regulated Internal Temperature
Old windows become frosty in the winter, which may make you feel colder, prompting you to turn up the thermostat. And during the summer, solar radiation warms the glass, causing you to turn up the air conditioner. New energy-efficient windows, on the other hand, contain low-e coatings which helps keep the glass’ temperature consistent. Furthermore, many are designed to have low thermal emissivity, which reduces the transfer of heat and UV rays. All of these factors contribute to energy-efficient windows helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
Minimized Energy Costs
Old windows can be a major source of air leaks. This means your HVAC system must work harder than usual to maintain the temperature in your home. By installing new windows, though, you’ll save money on energy costs in the long run. You may also be eligible for a tax credit if you install energy-efficient replacement windows.
