If you’re buying a new home in
Shrewsbury, you have the chance to play
a role in the amount of energy your home utilizes by
using a good design. Likewise, if you’re searching
you have the opportunity to greatly upgrade
the look of your home while using a good
design that encourages the opportunity for a smaller
carbon footprint. Let’s look at some ideas
for the Shrewsbury area.
Direction Your Windows Face
You need to consider the direction your windows face and the weather
conditions you live in.
For instance, if it’s warm in
Shrewsbury, you might want to consider placing more windows on the north side of your home to constrain
the amount of direct sunlight that will go in your
home. For windows that will still get bright
sun, consider a design with overhangs and buying
windows with Low-E glass, which can help limit the amount
of UV rays going in your home.
On the flipside, if the climate in
Shrewsbury is cooler most of the year, you might think through placing
more windows on the south side of your house to improve
your solar gain. Just like they can help keep the heat out in warmer area,
Low-E windows help insulate and keep heat in your home.
Bumping Up Efficiency
with Replacement Windows
Maybe you’re not building a home in Shrewsbury or
doing a huge remodel that may include shifting
window locations. If you’re just looking for
replacement windows, you still have a lot of options
that can help you decrease the carbon
footprint of your home. Low-E windows are still a fantastic option.
You can find an option suited for pretty
much every climate. In addition to the windows themselves, the installation is integral to the performance of your windows—great
options for professional installation exist in
need to be installed according to the manufacturer’s
recommendations and be appropriately sealed during installation to perform
correctly. That’s a big reason that professional installation is a preferred
option for many people.
