Replacement Windows and Energy Savings

Replacement Windows and Energy Savings in Haverhill, MA

Published on

Windows are one of the most important parts of our homes, and rightfully so – they provide a variety of benefits for us – natural light, ventilation, protection from the weather, and the list goes on and on. On the flip side, if they are old windows they can also be one of the causes of wasted energy costs. Why let those old windows make you pay more for heating and cooling when replacement windows can provide you with exceptional comfort and a spectacular new view?

There are steps we can take as homeowners to reduce the impact that windows have on our energy bills. And luckily, developments in window technology have given us higher efficiency windows that help everyone out as well.

When the weather in Haverhill reaches its hottest and coldest points in the summer and winter, your heating and cooling systems are working hard to keep your home comfortable. If you still have old windows, it might be time to think about replacement windows that can help protect your comfort and reduce your energy bills.

So what can you do?

  • Search for replacement windows that are ENERGY STAR®-certified

  • Utilize curtains and shades to help keep the heat out in the summer and keep the warmth in during winter

  • If you have single-pane windows, buy replacement windows that are double-pane or triple-pane to help guard the elements

  • Look up information on Low Emissivity (Low E) coatings, as they help reflect outside heat in the summer and keep heat in during the winter

While it may be an investment to buy replacement windows, the bonuses of upgrading to use energy-saving technology is well worth it. Not only can it increase your home’s overall energy efficiency, it adds comfort, a revitalized style and greater functionality for your home.
