The Role Of Your Windows Energy Conservation
Did you know that up to 25% of a building’s heating and cooling loss can occur through its windows? For that reason, windows are an extremely important link in the chain of your home’s energy efficiency.
To be sure, energy efficiency isn’t always the primary reason that leads homeowners decide to change their windows. Often times, it’s for aesthetic reasons, to improve the quality of light in the room, or for added security. That being said, however, energy efficiency should be an important deciding factor when choosing replacement windows.
Important Considerations When Choosing Replacement Windows
Replacing the windows in your Durham home or business can be a significant investment. Price, however, is only one factor to consider. Oftentimes, an apparently cheaper choice is one that ends up being more expensive when you factor in the difference in annual energy costs. There are several other key questions to ask yourself when you are considering replacing your windows include:
Today’s energy efficient windows are manufactured in a variety of materials including wood, aluminum, vinyl, and fiberglass. It is also important to consider the type of glass used in manufacturing, the number of panes and other aspects of the windows construction. Low E (low emissivity) glass has become the new standard for windows. This kind of glass has a special coating that diminishes the window’s thermal conductivity without sacrificing the quality of the light that passes through it. Older windows typically only had a single pane of glass. Ones have two or three payments with inner gas between the panes making them far more energy efficient.
One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning works exclusively with top manufacturers of highly rated energy Star windows.
How Many Windows To Replace?
It isn’t always necessary to replace all of the windows in your home or office to achieve excellent energy efficiency. Sometimes the best results can be achieved by only replacing a few key ones.
