Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Traverse City, MI

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to think about their energy efficiency. Of course that is typically concentrated 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 expenses.

You may ask – “So how is this?”

If you break it down, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can work to keep heat out during the warmer months and cold out during the winter. Doing so means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can go down as well, saving you money over time.

When you break it down, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a huge impact on the amount of heat and/or air leaving your home due to leaking windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the improvement 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 the length of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you could potentially be losing a lot of indoor air through leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
