Energy bills aren’t cheap, and extreme summer temperatures aren’t helping to lower the cost. Your old, drafty windows and doors are letting the comfortable air inside your home out. Your outdated appliances are working harder than usual, using excessive amounts of electricity to operate. Why continue to waste money on your energy bills month after month? Consider making upgrades to your home to boost its energy efficiency. Small changes, like unplugging electronics when they’re not being used or installing a programmable thermostat, can go a long way to help you reduce your energy bills. For maximum energy savings, we recommend replacing your windows and upgrading your appliances to boost your home’s energy efficiency for years to come.  

Window Replacement

Old, outdated windows are among the biggest culprits for energy loss in your home. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, nearly 40% of residential heating and cooling costs can be attributed to your windows. Save money by upgrading your windows to modern replacement windows from Window Nation. Our windows are equipped with premium energy efficiency features to help you save money on your energy bills no matter the season. Choose between wood and vinyl windows in a variety of style and color options to give your home a curb appeal boost while improving your home’s energy efficiency. All Window Nation windows are available in double pane and triple pane options, allowing you to choose between windows with the most value or the most energy savings for your home.

Upgrade Your Appliances

Sure, your old appliances may still work fine, but does that mean they’re the best appliances for your home? Your kitchen appliances and electronics are some of the biggest energy consumers in your home, and their usage only increases in the hot summer months. Start saving money on your energy bills by replacing your old, outdated devices with modern upgrades. Unlike their predecessors, most modern appliances come equipped with premium energy efficiency features, reducing the amount of energy required to operate. Be sure to purchase appliances that are Energy Star certified, guaranteeing energy savings for years to come.

Door Replacement

Your entry doors are constantly opening and closing, letting the uncomfortable air from outside in. What you might not notice? Your doors may have drafts or poor insulation, wasting more electricity than you think. Consider replacing your doors with replacement fiberglass or steel entry doors from Window Nation. Our doors are built to the highest quality and energy efficiency standards, guaranteeing energy savings for the entire time you live in your home. Entry doors from Window Nation come standard with a polyurethane foam core that offers five times the energy efficiency of a standard wood door. In addition, you won’t have to worry about poor insulation thanks to our Tru-Defense Door System providing an unsurpassed seal between the door and its frame.

Watch Your Energy Use

It’s one thing to upgrade your appliances to lower your energy bills, it’s another to be sure they’re being used efficiently to continue to save money on your energy bills. Be sure to unplug electronics and appliances when they’re not being used. Toasters, coffee makers and lamps are easy to plug-in and forget when they’re not being used. Make an effort to unplug your devices when not in use to save money and electricity. If you have something that you often forget to turn off, consider finding a way to automate it. Many companies offer apps to help you control your electronics when you’re away from your home.
