Save Energy & Money
As you may know, energy efficient windows have the ability to reduce the costs associated with cooling and heating your home. In colder months non-energy efficient windows can not only be drafty and allow cold air into your home, but also allow heat to escape.
In warmer months non-energy efficient windows allow cool air to escape your home and warm air to enter. Additionally, they also allow high levels of solar radiation and heat to enter your home, which further heats up the air.
Energy efficient windows prevent a large amount of this air transfer from the exterior of your home to the interior and vice versa. They also have the ability to defend your home against solar radiation and overheating through solar rays. Overall, prevent these air transfers has a large positive impact on the costs associated with heating and cooling your home.
It may seem like a stretch to connect your windows to your air conditioner and furnace, but when it comes to heating and cooling your home your windows play an integral role. As described, energy efficient windows prevent air transfer between the inside and exterior of your home. When it comes to cooling and heating your home this means that your HVAC appliances don’t have to work as hard to regulate the temperature inside your home. This means they’re working more efficiently and saving you money. In the long run this also means they won’t break down as often and last longer, which will also save you money on less frequent replacements.
Reduced Fading of Carpet & Furniture
Energy efficient windows not only improve the efficiency of your home, but they help prevent the sun from fading the color in your furniture, carpet and other fabrics. With the right energy efficient windows you can increase the amount of light that enters your home, but effectively reduce the amount of heat energy and UV radiation that enters. This UV radiation is the most likely type of solar radiation to damage and fade your possessions.
