Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Kalamazoo, MI

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 typically focused on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the improvements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can give you much more than their own energy efficiency and could impact your monthly energy bills.

You could ask – “So how is this?”

Essentially, when you invest in high-quality windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can help keep heat out during the hotter months and cold out during the winter. By doing so, the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can go down 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 volume of heat and/or air leaving your home due to leaky 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, might help reduce the amount of unwanted heat that makes its way in to your home.

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