Three ways new replacement windows can save on energy costs
Let’s face it: Summer is here and it is hot and humid! You are probably trying to beat the heat with an air conditioner or fan and that costs money. Maybe you are looking at new replacement windows.
New replacement windows can save you money on energy costs. It’s true! Chances are, your windows are old and much less efficient than they could be – which means you are wasting money.
So, how can you save on energy costs with new replacement windows? Here are three ways. Read on:
Older windows just aren’t that great at keeping cool air in and hot air out in the summer. Keeping more cool air inside means you won’t have to run your air conditioner as much – which translates into energy savings (aka more money in your pocket!). How do they do this? There are a few ways. Newer windows can come with coatings that let in less of the sun’s rays. They also can have double or even triple panes, meaning less air can pass through.
Broken or damaged windows
If you have broken or damaged windows, they are likely letting in hot air and allowing cool air to escape. Maybe you’ve fixed the damage or covered it with a tarp or plastic. However, the best fix is a new window, which can stop the leaks and save you cash. Plus, your home will look updated and well-maintained and you won’t have to worry.
Depending on what kind of window you purchase, you might qualify for a tax deduction from the government. Getting new, energy efficient windows (that are Energy Star rated) can mean less of a tax burden. We call that a win-win.
