Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not uncommon to ponder their energy efficiency. Of course that is typically centered on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the improvements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can give you much more than their own energy efficiency and can impact your monthly energy expenses.

You might ask – “So how is this?”

Basically, when you invest in high-quality windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can aid in keeping heat out during the hotter 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 big impact on the volume of heat and/or air leaving your home through leaky 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, might 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 through leaking and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
