Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Peoria, IL

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not uncommon to consider their energy efficiency. Of course that is normally centered on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the developments in technology over the years, your replacement windows can give you much more than their own energy efficiency and could impact your monthly energy costs.

You may ask – “So how is this?”

Essentially, when you invest in superior windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can work to keep heat out during the warmer months and cold out during the colder months. Doing this means 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 big impact on the quantity 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, can 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 could potentially be losing a lot of indoor air due to leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
