Replacement windows and savings in Plattsburgh, NY
As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to ponder their energy efficiency. Of course that is usually 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 might impact your monthly energy costs.
You may ask – “So how is this?”
If you break it down, when you invest in high-quality windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can aid in keeping heat out during the hotter months and cold out during the colder months. Doing so means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can decrease as well, saving you money over time.
When you consider everything, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a great 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, might help lower the amount of unwanted heat that enters 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 leaking and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
