Replacement windows and savings in Shrewsbury, MA
As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to think about their energy efficiency. Of course that is normally concentrated on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the improvements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can offer much more than their own energy efficiency and can impact your monthly energy costs.
You may ask – “So how is this?”
If you break it down, when you invest in high-quality windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can help 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 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 amount of heat and/or air leaving your home via 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, may help decrease the amount of unwanted heat that enters in to your home.
Depending on the amount of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you could potentially be losing a lot of indoor air due to unsealed and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
