Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to ponder their energy efficiency. Of course that is normally focused on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the advancements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can provide much more than their own energy efficiency and can impact your monthly energy costs.

You may ask – “So how is this?”

If you break it down, when you invest in high-quality windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can work to keep heat out during the hotter months and cold out during the winter. Doing this means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can be reduced as well, saving you money over time.

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

Depending on how long it has been since your home last had replacement windows installed, you could potentially be losing a lot of indoor air via leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
