If your home is drafty, then you might have already noticed how much energy you are losing through your windows and walls. Why, then, don’t you try and reduce your monthly bills with Energy Star quality windows? Read on to find out how:
New windows are designed to help you save on your monthly energy bills. As a homeowner, you can save a minimum of $27 (as per 2009 findings by Energy Star) annually by replacing your windows.
If your home has single-pane windows, you should consider replacing them with Energy Star-qualified products. By so doing, you will be able to save anywhere between $126 and $465 depending on the total number of windows you get replaced and your current location.
However, the cost savings that come from replacing double-pane windows is significantly less – around 25% less than the above figure. At most, you can save a maximum of $111 per year when you replace your double-paned windows.
Costs and Misconceptions
Homeowners are now looking to replace their windows, instead of simply repairing them. However, repairing your windows can prove to be more cost effective than getting a full window replacement – at least in the short term.
Still, if you are looking to fully take advantage of the savings brought by Energy Star quality windows, the best option available to you is to go for a replacement. Of course, it will significantly cost you initially. However, when you calculate the amount of money that you will reduce on your energy bill every month, it will be clear to you how much you are benefiting from these windows.
So, what other benefits will you derive by asking your window replacement professional to use Energy Star certified windows? Here are some:
Save Money – and More!
By installing Energy Star qualified windows, you will lower your energy bills and save money. These windows are designed and certified to be more efficient, meaning that they will help you use less energy to light up and warm your home. Therefore, they will reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that come from the power plant that supplies your home with electricity.
In the same way, Energy Star certified products are designed to put an end to overheated spaces and cold drafts. When you get these windows installed, they will ensure that your home temperatures are kept consistently comfortable. Even that loveseat you love reading at by the window will finally be cozy enough for you to lie there and enjoy your latest page-turner.
Protect Your Valuables
Additionally, most Energy Star windows have low-emissivity coatings. This means that you will be able to reduce the damage caused by the sun’s UV rays on your furniture, carpets, and floors.
