Increasing your home’s energy efficiency is relatively easy, as it can be done in several ways from adding more insulation in your attic to upgrading to a better HVAC system. Of course, some may require a bit of investment, but keep in mind that these upgrades go a long way in making your home’s energy consumption more efficient. The same goes for window products especially if they’re of good quality!
If you’re planning a full window installation soon, consider only the ones that are ENERGY STAR® rated. They provide several benefits for your home, including:
Increased Indoor Comfort
Old windows that are near the end of their lifespan often have drafts and leaks that can affect indoor temperatures. During summer, the cool air can escape through the cracks and broken window seals, causing your air conditioning system to pump more cool air to replace what was lost. But no matter how good your system is, the quality of comfort will never be on the same level as when you install new windows. Only a full window replacement ensures cool and comfy indoor temperatures for your home.
Reduced Outdoor Noise Pollution
Did you know that energy-efficient windows can also keep out unwanted noise pollution? This is thanks to the inert gas sandwiched between the glass in multi-paned windows. Many energy-efficient windows are specially designed and built with sound absorption in mind, so they’re more than capable of keeping the outdoor noise and other unwanted sounds from getting indoors. To know which window style offers the best energy efficiency and noise cancellation for your home, consult a trusted window installer like Timberland Exteriors.
Lower Monthly Energy Expenditures
If you don’t replace your old windows, your HVAC becomes inefficient as it maintains cool indoor temperatures. This is because it consumes more energy which leads to higher monthly energy bills. Of course, you won’t have this type of problem when you invest in energy-efficient windows as they’re made with quality materials that offer better insulation for your home. This means your system won’t have to work as hard to keep your home naturally cooler!
