Ever hear the phrase “you might as well throw your money right out the window?” Believe it or not, it can actually happen – especially if your windows are letting warm air escape from your house. It’s time to put an end to madness once and for all and make sure you’re not paying more than you should be on heating bills this season.
Not All Windows Are Created Equally
There are lots of different types of windows out there. There’s basically a window type for every budget and every condition. With that said, if you have the wrong windows in your home, they could be costing you a fortune. For starters, it’s vital to make sure your windows are insulated. Otherwise, your wasting your time and energy which ultimately wastes money.
Are New Windows Worth The Investment?
The simple answer is, yes. Why? Well, new windows can slash your energy bills by 12% or more, but it will take some time before you see the savings. Older windows tend to lose their efficiency as time passes and that means they’ll start costing you. Just think about sitting in the living room on a cold winter night without feeling the frigid draft from the windows on your neck. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Which Windows Are Best?
There’s no simple answer here. After all, everyone’s tastes and preferences are different. However, we recommend double- or triple-pane windows. Why? The space in between the panes of glass are filled with air or an inert gas that serve as layers of insulation. Both options are a huge improvement over the single-pane windows found in lots of older homes.
