New windows are among the best things you can invest in for your home. They will boost your curb appeal, improve comfort, and brighten your living spaces. Another benefit of replacing your old windows is that you will enjoy savings on your energy costs while helping nature.
Here’s how a window replacement can help you go green.
Save on Your Energy Costs
When you choose energy-efficient windows, you can get significant savings on your monthly utility costs. By replacing outdated units, your home’s energy efficiency can increase by at least 30 percent. If you combine your energy-efficient windows with green remodeling and design, such as passive solar heating, thermal mass, and natural lighting, you can even enjoy more benefits.
Going Green Is Cost-Effective
Whether you select energy-efficient windows or not, the installation costs will remain the same. It means that if you need new windows, the only additional cost you would need to pay for when you choose to go green will be for the units themselves. Also, choosing more sustainable replacement windows goes beyond energy savings. They are healthier, better for the environment, and easier to maintain.
Key Features to Look For
Green replacement windows are known for their ability to boost your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. These windows feature multiple panes, which can cut down heating costs by up to 15 percent. They have Low-E glass coatings, which prevent heat loss in the colder months and minimize the heat that enters your home during the warmer seasons. Energy-efficient windows also have low-conductivity frames.
