Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Falls Church, VA

Published on

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

You might ask – “So how is this?”

If you break it down, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can aid in keeping heat out during the hotter months and cold out during the colder months. Doing this means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can decrease as well, saving you money over time.

When you break it down, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a big impact on the volume of heat and/or air leaving your home via leaky 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, may help lower the amount of unwanted heat that enters in to your home.

Depending on the amount of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you could potentially be losing a lot of indoor air through unsealed and inefficient windows and around the installed window. If you’d like to see all the replacement windows you have to pick from Pella Windows and Doors, feel free to stop by the Falls Church showroom, give us a ring at 301-354-3689 or arrange an appointment with us online through our online scheduler.
