Replace Your Old Drafty Windows With New Energy-Efficient Windows
Out of all the improvements technology has made to the home construction industry — new roofing construction, better insulation and improved plastic siding — windows may be the best improvement of them all.
There are so many benefits to having new windows installed in your home, more than just being energy efficient.
Let’s take a look at some of the advantages new windows can bring to your home over those old, drafty windows, which are in lots of Buffalo homes.
1) Energy Savings: With double-pane windows, we’re talking about two pieces of glass with vacuum-sealed inert gas between the panes. These new windows limit the transfer of cold or hot air into the home and are much sturdier than its single-pane counterpart. In the summer, when the AC is on, the warm air stays out and the cool air is kept in with better weather strips and framing.
2) Sound Control: Own a house or apartment building near a busy street or bar district? Do yourself a favor and replace those windows for yourself and your tenants. The amount of noise blocked will be noticeable immediately. Fiberglass framing and tight weather strips have a lot to do with blocking noise, along with the new and improved window itself. A quiet home is a better home.
3) Protection from Fading: Carpets don’t last forever because of two reasons, traffic and fading — not from the traffic, but from the sun beating down and wearing on the carpet. These new Energy Star windows offer protection against the sun and its rays with special coatings that can save your window treatments, carpets and even photographs that are consistently exposed to the sun’s damaging rays.
5) Money Savings: Most importantly, getting new windows means saving money on your energy bills. According to Energy Star, you could save as much as $424 a year if replacing those old single-pane windows with a double-pane Energy Star efficient windows. And think of the money you will save not having to replace carpets, window treatments and pictures because of fading from the sun.
