Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in West Springfield, MA

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to consider 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 offer much more than their own energy efficiency and could impact your monthly energy expenses.

You could ask – “So how is this?”

Essentially, when you invest in high-quality windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can help keep heat out during the hotter months and cold out during the cooler months. Doing this means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can go down as well, saving you money over time.

When you consider everything, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a huge impact on the volume of heat and/or air leaving your home through leaky 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, 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 could potentially be losing a lot of indoor air due to leaking and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
