The Benefits of Energy Efficient Windows for Your Home
There’s a lot of talk these days about being energy efficient. There are many good reasons to improve your home’s energy efficiency, not the least of which is that an energy efficient home can save you money. Energy efficiency can do more than just save you money on your heating and cooling bills. Having energy efficient windows in your home can allow your HVAC system (heating and cooling) to work more efficiently. Improving your home’s energy efficiency with new replacement windows can make your home a more enjoyable place to be.
In the past few years, there have been many advancements in energy efficient glass coatings, spacer systems, and window technologies. That means that the replacement windows on the market today are better at keeping home energy efficient than windows that were made just ten years ago. Nowadays, there are many different window options to choose from. Some windows are designed to perform better if you get a lot of direct sunlight, or if you live in a region with very hot and very cold temperatures, like we do here in Everett. Other windows offer laminated security glass to deter intruders and reduce exterior noises. Whether you choose Extreme Low-E, Ultra Triple Pane, or Ultimate Triple Pane windows, there are energy efficient windows that will suit your needs and reduce your energy bills in both the summer AND winter!
Along with reducing energy bills and allowing your HVAC system to work more efficiently, energy efficient Everett windows will also:
- Reduce condensation- High-performance windows reduce condensation that may warp windows or the surrounding woodwork.
- Increase the view and the light in your home – Windows are in your home to allow daylight inside and to allow you a view of the outside. High-performance energy efficient windows will reduce unwanted heat gain with exceptional glass coatings and allow more light into your home.
- Reduce fading- Energy efficient windows can protect against the sun’s harmful rays. UV protection in your windows will keep paint and fabrics from fading.
