Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Greenfield, MA

Published on

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

You may ask – “So how is this?”

Basically, when you invest in superior windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can help keep heat out during the summer and cold out during the winter. By doing so, the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can go down as well, saving you money over time.

When you think it through, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a great impact on the quantity of heat and/or air leaving your home via unsealed windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the development of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, can help reduce the amount of unwanted heat that makes its way in to your home.

Depending on how long it has been since your home last had replacement windows installed, you may potentially be losing a lot of indoor air through 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 stop by the Greenfield showroom, give us a shout at (413) 829-0299 or set up an appointment with us online through our online scheduler.
