Replacement Windows and Energy Savings

Replacement Windows and Energy Savings in Colorado Springs, CO

Published on

Windows are one of the most crucial pieces of our homes, and rightfully so – they deliver various bonuses for us – natural light, ventilation, protection from the weather, and the list goes on and on. On the contrary, if they are old windows they can also be one of the causes of wasted energy costs. Why let those old windows make you pay more for heating and cooling when replacement windows can provide you with improved comfort and a great new view?

There are steps we can take as homeowners to reduce the impact that windows have on our energy bills. And luckily, advancements in window technology have afforded us higher efficiency windows that help everyone out as well.

When the weather in Colorado Springs reaches its hottest and coldest points in the summer and winter, your heating and cooling systems are operating hard to keep your home comfortable. If you still have old windows, it could be time to think about replacement windows that can help ensure your comfort and reduce your energy costs.

So what can you do?

  • Hunt for replacement windows that are ENERGY STAR®-certified

  • Utilize curtains and shades to help keep the heat out in the summer and keep the warmth in during winter

  • If you have single-pane windows, buy replacement windows that are double-pane or triple-pane to help block the elements

  • Research Low Emissivity (Low E) coatings, as they help reflect outside heat in the summer and keep heat in during the winter

While it can be an investment to buy replacement windows, the benefits of upgrading to take advantage of energy-saving technology is well worth it. Not only can it improve your home’s overall energy efficiency, it increases comfort, a revitalized style and greater functionality for your home.
