Energy Efficiency Tips to Beat the Summer Heat :: Energy Efficient Windows

With summer right around the corner, you can start to look forward to trips to the beach, pool season, countless cookouts, great weather, and increased energy bills. Okay, maybe you are not looking forward to that last one. But you will have to deal with increased energy bills this summer.

Unfortunately, the hot summer sun can cause your energy bills to rise, putting a strain on your wallet. Fortunately, there are some preventative measures you can take as a homeowner to help combat rising energy costs. One of these cost-saving solutions is upgrading your windows with new, energy-efficient windows!

Energy Efficiency Window Information for your Home or Business

  1. Low-E Glass: The special coating on this type of glass reduces the amount of heat entering your home or business, thus lowering your cooling needs and reducing your energy bills.
  2. ENERGY STAR: These products are guaranteed to deliver optimal energy savings.
  3. Industry Ratings: Efficiency ratings are based on U-factor: The amount of heat flowing through a product; solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC): Indicates the ability to block heat generated by sunlight; and visible light transmission: The percentage of sunlight that penetrates a window or door.

According to one of the most recent U.S. Department of Energy studies, a typical homeowner replacing single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR® qualified windows can expect to realize savings ranging from $126 to $465 a year in energy bills. So what are you waiting for? Call your local window supplier today!
