Sometimes it feels impossible to save money in the winter. Your holiday shopping list seems never ending, and your energy bills skyrocket as you try to keep your home comfortable despite the cold. While we can’t help you save money on your holiday gifts, we can help you save money on your energy bills. Making small changes, like turning your thermostat down and opening your curtains, could help you save big on your energy bills. For a bigger impact, consider upgrading your windows, doors, and siding with energy efficient replacements from Window Nation. No matter how much you’re looking to save, our home improvement experts have tips on how to keep your home comfortable on a budget this winter.

Upgrade Your Windows

Consider upgrading your old, drafty windows with energy efficient replacement windows from Window Nation. Our windows are built with premium energy efficiency features to eliminate drafts and keep your home comfortable no matter the season. We offer double pane and triple pane windows, so you can choose between windows with the best value or the best energy efficiency. Our windows are also installed with an airtight seal to eliminate drafts and keep your home warm all winter long. The best part? You don’t have to wait until spring to start saving money! Our team is skilled in winter window installations, taking special precautions to keep your home comfortable.

Turn Down Your Thermostat

Much of your energy consumption comes from heating and cooling your home. While cranking your thermostat up will make your home feel nice and toasty, it could cause your energy bills to skyrocket. Save money by turning down your thermostat 7 to 10 degrees while you sleep at night – you could lower your energy bills by nearly 10%! To combat the cold, consider purchasing flannel sheets or adding a few layers to your bed to stay warm while you sleep. You might even consider lowering your thermostat during the day for a bigger impact.

Be Smart About Your Heat Consumption

Understandably, some homeowners might not want to lower the thermostat any more than they already have. For those homeowners, we recommend being smarter about using your heater. Heat only the areas of your home that are used frequently, like your common areas and bedrooms. Be sure all your vents are open and accessible, and shut the doors in your home to trap the heat in the area it belongs. This will reduce the strain on your HVAC system, allowing your heater to work smarter, not harder. For extra savings, consider upgrading your existing thermostat to a smart thermostat for additional control over the temperature of your home.

Insulate Your Home

Nearly one-third of your heating and cooling costs come from energy loss through drafty windows and doors. Take time to inspect your home for drafts and air leaks and seal any drafts you notice with caulk. It’s also important to insulate your home with fiberglass or foam insulation. The biggest culprits for heat loss are in your attic and basement, so take extra care to insulate those areas of your house. You can also keep your floors warm and insulated by adding throw rugs to reduce the number of cold surfaces in your home. You’ll notice an immediate difference in the comfort level of your home!

Do you like finding a twenty dollar bill on the ground? Who doesn’t! How about finding money you didn’t know you had? We’re not talking about change under your couch cushion. What if you reached into your pocket to grab your keys and found a $50 bill you don’t remember leaving there. That’s a good feeling, isn’t it? We actually have a lot of free money around us we don’t even realize we have. It could be an item in your attic that you think is a piece of junk, but that someone else would pay you crazy money for, or it could be something new that has money hidden inside it–like those new windows you bought last year.

If you had a window replacement done last year, you could be sitting on free money. The U.S. government wants you to move toward making energy-conscious decisions for your home, so they have instituted an incentive plan to motivate you. You may have taken part in that plan without even realizing it. If you bought windows in 2016 that were Energy Star compliant, the government may give you some money for that smart decision. It is all part of their tax credit for Solar Energy Systems plan. All you have to do to get that free money is claim your window replacement on your tax forms. Done. Easy peasy.

Some choose us because we are a 5-time Angie’s List Super Service Award winner, or that we have an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau. Some choose us because we are consistently listed as a Top 10 Window Retailer by Remodeling Magazine or that we were named Dealer of the Year by Window & Door Magazine. These are great indicators of the kind of work we do, but they are just indicators. They don’t really explain why Window Nation is a cut above the competition, or why we have risen to the top of the remodeling industry in such a short time. Hopefully, this article will shed some light on that success.

At Window Nation, we have a business model that puts customer satisfaction first. It is that focus that has driven us to create a product that is of the highest level of craftsmanship and an installation process that ensures the highest probability for customer satisfaction after the sale is complete. We know that, not only do happy customers become repeat customers, they are also more likely to tell other people about us. That is why we work so hard to pay attention to the details–right down to the millimeter. Three millimeters to be exact.

Do 3 millimeters really make a difference? We think so. We know that when your windows and doors are measured down to 3mm, they’re going to fit tightly, and you’re going to be more comfortable. Your heat and cool air will stay in your house where it belongs. And you’re not going to feel so cold in the winter because the moisture levels in your home, that can make it feel colder, are going to be lower. For a company that focuses on customer satisfaction, these kinds of details are crucial.

How do we ensure measurements down to 3mm? By ensuring that all of our technicians are certified and trained to install the windows and doors we manufacture or trained by the manufacturers we support. And, all our teams have a master-level team leader with the experience to get the job done right, like making sure measurements are verified three times to ensure a tight fit.
