If you live in an older home, you know better than most how energy can be lost with older windows. With summer months in New York being hot and humid and winters month being cold and frigid, you may notice that your energy bills are increasing while trying to keep your home a comfortable temperature. Installing new energy efficient windows is a great way to lower your energy bills and making your home more energy efficient while improving the curb appeal.
Windows play a huge role in your home’s energy usage. An average home can lose up to 30% of heating and cooling air through windows. During hot summer days, the sun can come in through the windows, which may be beautiful, but it can also cause your air conditioning unit to work double. In the winter, most of the energy that is warming your home is let out through windowpanes and cold air comes in. The purpose of installing new energy-efficient windows is to block the heat that would come in during the summer and keep in the heat in the winter. This will help your air conditioning and heat work efficiently throughout the year.
