Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Raleigh, North Carolina

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 concentrated on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the improvements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can provide much more than their own energy efficiency and could impact your monthly energy costs.

You may ask – “So how is this?”

Essentially, 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 winter. 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 big impact on the amount of heat and/or air leaving your home via leaking 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 decrease 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.
