Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in South Burlington, VT

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 typically centered on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the developments in technology over the years, your replacement windows can give you much more than their own energy efficiency and might impact your monthly energy costs.

You could 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 aid in keeping heat out during the hotter months and cold out during the winter. By doing so, the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can go down as well, saving you money over time.

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

Depending on the length of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you may potentially be losing a lot of indoor air via leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window. If you’d like to view all the replacement windows you have to choose from Pella Windows and Doors, feel free to stop by the South Burlington showroom, give us a shout at (802) 557-0429 or arrange an appointment with us online through our online scheduler.
