Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Calgary, AB

Published on

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

You might ask – “So how is this?”

Basically, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can help keep heat out during the hotter months and cold out during the cooler months. Doing so means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can decrease as well, saving you money over time.

When you break it down, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a big impact on the volume of heat and/or air leaving your home through leaking 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, might 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 via unsealed and inefficient windows and around the installed window.
