Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Wilmington, North Carolina

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not uncommon to ponder their energy efficiency. Of course that is usually focused on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the advancements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can provide much more than their own energy efficiency and can impact your monthly energy costs.

You may ask – “So how is this?”

If you break it down, when you invest in high-quality windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can help keep heat out during the warmer months and cold out during the cooler months. Doing so means 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 huge 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 development of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, may 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 through leaking and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
