Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Roanoke, Virginia

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not uncommon to think about their energy efficiency. Of course that is usually centered on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the improvements 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?”

Essentially, when you invest in superior windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can work to keep heat out during the hotter months and cold out during the winter. Doing so means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can decrease as well, saving you money over time.

When you think it through, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a big impact on the volume of heat and/or air leaving your home due to leaky windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the improvement 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 the amount of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you could potentially be losing a lot of indoor air via leaking and inefficient windows and around the installed window. If you’d like to see all the replacement windows you have to select from Pella Windows and Doors, feel free to drop by the Roanoke showroom, give us a ring at 540-466-1918 or schedule an appointment with us online through our online scheduler.
