When Are Replacement Windows Most Important?

Jul 12, 2012

A common misconception for those living in cooler climes is that replacement windows are only necessary because winters can be brutal.  And while it is true that several states suffer long, cold winters, it does not mean that the summer time uses little or no energy. In fact, cooling bills can be just as expensive or even more expensive than heating bills in the winter. Replacement windows are just as important during the hot summer months as they are during the winter.

While homes can be heated through many alternative sources such as fireplaces and solar energy, when the weather is hot, air conditioning and multiple fans are really the only options to keep things cool. Both of these things take a huge toll on your wallet when it comes to paying the utility bill. Homes across the country are using a lot of energy each summer in order to keep their home cool and if their windows are not providing relief from the sun’s beaming rays, it is possible that a lot of money is being wasted in energy bills.

The summer is a perfect time to have your old, drab windows replaced with energy efficient and cost saving windows. Today’s replacement window models prove to beat the heat through:

  • Silver oxide coatings for energy efficiency

  • Blocks out UV rays to prevent fading and heat transfer

  • Vinyl insulates 200 times better than steel and 1000 times better than aluminum

  • Gas inserted between glass panes to prevent heat transfer

And with many models to choose from, not only will your windows be energy efficient but you will be able to match your current style or create a whole new style to your home.

So instead of waiting for Jack Frost to come knocking, why not get relief from the summer heat. Your home can become a cool summer haven all while saving money on your cooling bills.
