When you choose to remodel a room, kitchen or your entire home, you will probably be replacing those old windows, too. Windows aren't just single pane or double pane anymore, there are so many options to choose from. And they are all designed for comfort, no matter what area of the country you live in. There are more than 100 million homes in the U.S. and most of those homes are more than 30 years old. Which means the market for energy-efficient insulated glass is growing.
Windows add beauty to our homes... however, while we want them to be aesthetically pleasing, the climate you live in should also be an important factor when choosing new windows. Not all windows are designed for hot California summers or frigid Alaskan winters. Choosing the right window for your average annual weather conditions will greatly reduce your energy costs. During a hot summer, the right window will keep the heat outside and the inside cool, reducing the need for your indoor A/C. The same goes for keeping the cold out and heat in during the winter.
The photo is an example of heat loss through a single pane, clear glass window and heat retention from double pane glass with low-e (low-emittance) coating. You can cut energy costs by up to 17% annually by switching from the glass on the left to the glass on the right... and we can help you do that! Selecting the best replacement windows and our skilled team of builders will save you money and add beauty and warmth to your home!
