Are you spending a fortune heating and cooling your home? An easy solution which will not only bring your bills down but also put money in your pocket is installing energy-efficient windows. These windows work wonders keeping heat inside your home during the winter and keeping the inside of your home cool during the summer. A nice added touch (on top of all the money-saving) is that they look good too! When it comes time to sell your home, the value will be increased since your whole home is outfitted with energy-efficient windows. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of energy-efficient windows.
- Better Insulation
Energy-efficient windows form a barrier against the cold temperatures, resulting in a home that is toasty warm during the winter, and cool and pleasant during the summer. These windows accomplish this by having a double-glazed low-E window that has insulation tucked in-between the panes. The double-paned window is a huge improvement over single-paned windows which are known for letting drafts inside your home. Thankfully, insulated windows are much better able to prevent heat loss and heat gain, which keeps the internal temperature of your house stable.
- Low Emittance-Coating
When you purchase a window with a low-emittance-coating, they come with two glass panes where the e-coating is low. What does all of this mean? It means that it will help in reducing the solar radiation and suppress the heat flow entering your home. This helps regulate the temperature within your home.
- Reduced Maintenance
The prevalence of condensation buildup in your windows is significantly reduced when you purchase energy-efficient windows. This leads to many great benefits, like a lower risk of mould, an environment more closely suited for those who suffer from asthma, and the elimination of water sports and dirt buildup on the outside, thanks to their UV-resistant coating. This means that you don’t need to clean and maintain your windows as often.
- Lower Costs
With energy-efficient windows, your home will consume less energy heating and cooling your home. As a result, you’ll end up saving money on your energy bill. Who doesn’t want beautiful windows that also save you money?! It’s a win-win!
- Better for the Environment
Since energy-efficient windows do such a great job of keeping your home at the optimal temperature, your heaters and air conditioners do not need to work as hard. This means you’re producing less energy which in turn helps the environment. Your home is now utilizing less power that is generated by fossil-fuel sources like coal or natural gas. Now you can boast that you have an eco-friendly home, all because you switched out your windows for energy-efficient alternatives.
Pro tip: Always purchase energy star windows that come with an energy star label. This validates the window as an energy-saving window and will make sure you are getting what you pay for. The last thing you want to want to do is to pay for an energy-efficient window only to find out it is not authentic. If the window is not authentic it will not help save you money on energy costs. So, keep your eyes peeled!
