Replacement Windows and Energy Savings in Roanoke, Virginia

Published on

Windows are one of the most critical parts of our homes, and rightfully so – they provide a variety of bonuses for us – natural light, ventilation, protection from the weather, and the list goes on and on. On the flip side, if they are old windows they can also be one of the causes of wasted energy costs. Why let those old windows make you pay more for heating and cooling when replacement windows can provide you with amazing comfort and a breathtaking new view?

There are steps we can take as homeowners to reduce the impact that windows have on our energy bills. And luckily, developments in window technology have left us higher efficiency windows that help everyone out as well.

When the weather in Roanoke reaches its hottest and coldest points in the summer and winter, your heating and cooling systems are operating hard to keep your home comfortable. If you still have old windows, it may be time to think about replacement windows that can help ensure your comfort and reduce your energy bills.

So what can you do?

  • Hunt for replacement windows that are ENERGY STAR®-certified

  • Use curtains and shades to help keep the heat out in the summer and keep the warmth in during winter

  • If you have single-pane windows, buy replacement windows that are double-pane or triple-pane to help guard the elements

  • Research Low Emissivity (Low E) coatings, as they help reflect outside heat in the summer and keep heat in during the winter
