Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Northern Virginia, VA

Published on

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

You could 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 help 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 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 unsealed 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, can help reduce the amount of unwanted heat that comes 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 via leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
