Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Springfield, IL

Published on

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

You could 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 help keep heat out during the summer and cold out during the cooler months. By doing so, the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can decrease as well, saving you money over time.

When you think it through, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a huge impact on the amount of heat and/or air leaving your home through 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, might help reduce the amount of unwanted heat that comes in to your home.

Depending on how long it has been since your home last had replacement windows installed, you might potentially be losing a lot of indoor air via leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window. If you’d like to view all the replacement windows you have to select from Pella Windows and Doors, feel free to drop by the Springfield showroom, give us a call at 217-793-0550 or arrange an appointment with us online through our online scheduler.
