When buying replacement windows, you must put energy efficiency as a top priority. After all, energy loss through windows can account for up to 30% of the energy consumption in an average household. Eagle Creek Siding, LLC provides an overview of the benefits of energy-efficient windows.
Save on Monthly Energy Bills
Investing in high-performance windows can help you save a significant amount on heating and cooling costs every year. These windows are designed to moderate the temperature inside your home, keeping it warm during the winter and cool in the summer. Energy-efficient windows also add more natural light to your home, reducing your reliance on artificial lighting and helping you save on electricity costs.
Improve Your Home’s Comfort
Old windows are prone to drafts, air leakage, and heat loss causing your heating and cooling system to work twice hard to maintain a comfortable temperature. Not only will this increase your bills significantly, but it may also damage your HVAC equipment. To prevent this from happening, be sure to choose energy-efficient windows. They are better insulated and more capable of maintaining a higher surface on interior glazing, which helps keep your home’s temperature in check.
Less Transmission of Sound Waves and UV Rays
Energy-efficient windows come with inert gas fills that not only enhance their thermal performance and also help minimize sound transmission from outside to inside. Double-paned windows should work, but if you want to achieve a home with fewer disruptions caused by outdoor noises, consider high-performance triple-paned windows for improved sound absorption. Energy-efficient windows with low-E glass also keep the sun’s UV rays out, reducing their transmission by 50 to 75 percent. This prevents your floors and furniture from fading.
