Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Grand Rapids, MI

Published on

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

You may ask – “So how is this?”

Essentially, when you invest in superior windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can work to 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 go down as well, saving you money over time.

When you consider everything, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a huge impact on the volume of heat and/or air leaving your home via 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, can help lower the amount of unwanted heat that enters in to your home.

Depending on the length of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you might potentially be losing a lot of indoor air via leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
