Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Syracuse, NY

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not out of the ordinary to consider their energy efficiency. Of course that is usually focused on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the improvements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can provide much more than their own energy efficiency and might 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 help keep heat out during the summer and cold out during the cooler months. By doing so, the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can be reduced as well, saving you money over time.

When you think it through, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a huge impact on the quantity 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 advancement of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, may help decrease the amount of unwanted heat that enters in to your home.

Depending on how long it has been since your home last had replacement windows installed, you may potentially be losing a lot of indoor air due to leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
