Autumn is the brief period of time between the hot weather and the cold weather when it is just perfect outside. This great weather also provides the perfect time to get your windows replaced for better energy-efficient ones. But you had better hurry; autumn is coming to an end here soon.
Why Should I Switch To Energy-Efficient Windows Now?
You should switch to energy-efficient windows right now for two reasons.
One, the good weather outside will make it more comfortable for you and your family while we are replacing the windows. You don’t have to worry about the snow or the cold weather causing you to have to turn up the heater full blast or the hot weather outside making it so you have to crank up the air conditioner, just to stay comfortable.
Two, by putting in your energy-efficient windows now you will get to enjoy lower heating bills for the entire winter.
How Do Energy-Efficient Windows Lower My Heating Bills?
Energy-efficient windows decrease your heating bills because they act more like a wall than a window. You will still be able to see out of them, but the air has a harder time getting through them. This means that in the winter, the cold air won’t be able to get through the windows and into your home. It also means that the heated air in your home won’t be able to go through the window and get to the outside. You literally will no longer be heating the whole neighborhood.
By keeping the cold air out and the heated air in, your heater has to be on less often. The less your heater is on, the lower your heating bill will be during the winter.
How Are Energy-Efficient Windows Different Than Regular Windows?
Energy-Efficient windows are built differently than regular windows in a number of different ways:
- They have two or more panes of glass
- They have a clear chemical between the panes of glass that works similar to the insulation in your home
- Many energy-efficient windows have special tinting that decrease how much of the sun’s rays that get in the house (this is a summer benefit of having energy-efficient windows)
