Importance of Energy-Efficient Windows to Your Home

Importance of Energy-Efficient Windows to Your Home

Energy-efficient windows will save you money both now and in the future. Making a house more energy efficient is a new window benefit that is at the top of most people’s wish lists. Moreover, with 40% of the average energy budget going to heating and cooling your home, you do not want that energy escaping through your windows.

Energy-Efficient Window

Energy-efficient windows save energy by using some unique coating on the glass, a new window spacer system, and advanced technology. Here are some of the economic importance of installing energy-efficient window replacements from a trusted roofing contractor, Lask Exterior Solutions, LLC:

  1. Provides Better Insulation

Energy-efficient windows help keep a consistent and comfortable temperature in your home, eliminating hot and cold spots in rooms. They create a barrier against cold weather during winter, keeping a warm and pleasant environment indoors. During summer, they help block the outdoor heat, reducing air conditioning costs.

  1. Noise Reduction

Energy-efficient windows provide high insulation and airtightness.  The same qualities that allow energy-efficient windows to effectively seal out exterior temperatures also give them innate soundproofing capabilities. 

  1. Save Money On Your Utility Bills

Energy-efficient windows and roofing can substantially reduce your energy costs by eliminating your HVAC unit’s overcompensation due to air leakage in the summer and winter months. Besides monthly cost savings on your utility bill, some state and local governments offer tax credits, rebates and incentives for upgrading to energy-efficient windows.

  1. Less Damage To Furniture

Believe it or not, sunlight tends to fade your home upholstery over time. Energy-efficient windows block the UV rays from the sun. This, in turn, keeps the color of your carpet, paint, and wood protected and ensures they retain their original state. 

  1. Reduced Condensation

Older, double-glazed windows with failing perimeter seals may have increased condensation collecting between the panes of glass, which spoils your view and reduces energy efficiency. Energy-efficient windows minimize energy transfer, which keeps interior glass surfaces warmer and helps reduce frost and condensation that makes rooms feel colder.
