The winter season is making its way into many Eastern states and with this return of cold weather, higher heating costs rides its coattails. Throughout the country, heaters are beginning to work overtime. That's because many homes allow the heat to leak out via poorly insulated windows.

According to weather.com, here are the average temperatures for the month of January:

Cleveland, OH - 28 degrees on average
Baltimore, MD - 33 degrees on average
Washington, DC - 36 degrees on average
Charlotte, NC - 41 degrees on average

With temperatures close to freezing, it is important that your home holds in the maximum amount of heat. A well-insulated home requires your heating system to run less which results in lower heating costs through the long winter. One way to reduce heat loss through Window Nation’s energy efficient window replacements.

While replacement windows are an upfront cost to homeowners, they will end up saving a lot of money down the line. Heating bills will be lower because the heat will actually stay in the home, creating an evenly heated space rather than drifting out through older and less efficient windows. And with heating costs not expected to drop anytime soon, it is important to save on resources as much as possible.
