Benefits of Energy Efficient Window Replacement

Energy efficiency is quite the buzz-word these days and you may be wondering about the benefits of installing energy efficient windows. There are a number of benefits in choosing Energy Star windows when selecting new windows for your home or it’s time for window replacements.

  • Better Insulation – Energy efficient windows are made with quality frame materials to reduce the heat transfer and help insulate your home. They come with an Energy Star rating, ranking them on:
  • U-Factor – Insulating value, lower numbers reflect better insulating value.
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) – Amount of heat from the sun passing through the glass. Lower numbers indicate glass is keeping heat from entering your home.
  • Visible Transmittance – Rates the amount of visible light passing through the glass. In this case, higher numbers note glass is allowing more light to enter.
  • Air Infiltration – How much air is escaping or entering through the window. Lower numbers are best as they show air is kept from entering or escaping.
  • Condensation Resistance – Indicates amount of moisture it takes for glass to condensate when exposed to extreme temperature changes. Higher numbers show better resistance.

Bottom line, energy efficient windows are better at keeping the cold outside during the winter and keeping your home cool during the summer than standard windows.

  • Better For The Environment – Because your home is better insulated you are able to use less energy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Lower energy usage means your home is using less non-renewable fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas. All of this results in a more eco-friendly home.
  • Lower Costs – Less energy usage in your home means a lower heating or cooling bill. In addition to lower monthly utility bills, there may be tax credit or rebate available for you due to installing energy efficient windows. Check with your local utility company and see if a rebate is available!
  • Protection – Energy efficient windows are treated with a special coating that keeps the harmful UV rays of the sun out of your home. Ultraviolet rays have the ability to damage or fade flooring, rugs, carpets, furniture, etc. If you install energy efficient windows, you won’t have to worry about these fading issues.
  • Decrease Noise – Energy Star rated windows not only seal out weather conditions, they also keep exterior noises from entering your home. Outside noises such as trains, sirens, traffic, your neighbor’s barking dog, etc. can be greatly reduced with energy efficient windows.
