Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Scottsdale, AZ

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not uncommon to think about their energy efficiency. Of course that is usually centered on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the improvements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can offer much more than their own energy efficiency and can impact your monthly energy bills.

You may ask – “So how is this?”

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

When you break it down, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a great impact on the quantity of heat and/or air leaving your home due to 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, might help reduce the amount of unwanted heat that makes its way in to your home.

Depending on the amount of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you may potentially be losing a lot of indoor air through unsealed and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
