Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Petoskey, MI

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to consider their energy efficiency. Of course that is typically centered 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 could impact your monthly energy expenses.

You may ask – “So how is this?”

If you break it down, when you invest in superior windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can aid in keeping 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 break it down, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a great impact on the amount of heat and/or air leaving your home due to 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 comes in to your home.

Depending on the amount of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you may potentially be losing a lot of indoor air due to leaking and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
