Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Charlotte, 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 normally centered on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the improvements 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?”

Basically, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can work to keep heat out during the warmer months and cold out during the cooler 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 quantity of heat and/or air leaving your home via unsealed windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the development of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, may 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 might potentially be losing a lot of indoor air via unsealed and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
