Windows are one of the most critical parts of our homes, and rightfully so – they offer numerous bonuses for us – natural light, ventilation, protection from the weather, and the list goes on and on. On the other side, if they are old windows they can also be one of the reasons for wasted energy costs. Why let those old windows make you pay more for heating and cooling when replacement windows can provide you with amazing comfort and a great new view?
There are steps we can take as homeowners to lessen the impact that windows have on our energy bills. And luckily, improvements in window technology have given us higher efficiency windows that help everyone out as well.
