If your windows are old, outdated, and drafty, you’re wasting more than just heat and air conditioning - you’re wasting money.
Thankfully, there are several options for homeowners that are looking to enhance their energy efficiency while also boosting the curb appeal of their home. One of the fastest ways is by replacing old windows with new energy-efficient replacement windows.
Energy efficient windows come in many different shapes and sizes - as well as with different energy efficient features. Some of these features include:
- Low-E or “Florida E” coating
- Insulating gases, such as argon
Truthfully, unless your new windows contain at least 3 of the 4 features listed above, you won’t see the true value of the windows for heating and cooling cost savings.
When shopping for energy efficient replacement windows, you want to ensure that the windows you plan to buy have been independently tested to meet the necessary performance requirements and have the certification label affixed to them. An example of this would be an ENERGY STAR® certification - which will guarantee your windows meet the standards for your climate area.
According to ENERGY STAR, “certified windows, doors, and skylights can reduce your energy bills by an average of 12% nationwide, while helping to protect the environment.”
