Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Des Moines, IA

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not out of the ordinary to ponder their energy efficiency. Of course that is usually concentrated on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the developments in technology over the years, your replacement windows can give you much more than their own energy efficiency and could impact your monthly energy bills.

You could ask – “So how is this?”

Basically, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can aid in keeping heat out during the summer and cold out during the winter. By doing so, the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can be reduced as well, saving you money over time.

When you break it down, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a big impact on the amount of heat and/or air leaving your home via leaking windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the improvement of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, can help reduce the amount of unwanted heat that comes in to your home.

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