Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Wellesley, MA

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to ponder their energy efficiency. Of course that is typically concentrated on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the developments in technology over the years, your replacement windows can offer much more than their own energy efficiency and might impact your monthly energy costs.

You could ask – “So how is this?”

Basically, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can work to keep heat out during the summer and cold out during the colder months. Doing this 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 through leaky 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, may help reduce the amount of unwanted heat that makes its way in to your home.

Depending on the length of time 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. 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 Wellesley showroom, give us a call at 781-239-1161 or schedule an appointment with us online through our online scheduler.
