Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Annapolis, Maryland

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not uncommon to think about their energy efficiency. Of course that is normally focused 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 costs.

You may ask – “So how is this?”

Essentially, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can aid in keeping heat out during the summer and cold out during the winter. 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 volume 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 improvement of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, might help reduce 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 might potentially be losing a lot of indoor air via leaking and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
