When building your dream home, it’s easy to cut corners to save a few thousand dollars here and there. After all, building a home is far from cheap and you have a fairly tight budget. But your windows are one of the last places you should skimp. In fact, by trying to save some money during construction, you could cost yourself in the long run. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), windows account for 25-40% of your annual heating and cooling costs. Yikes!
The Benefits of Energy Efficient Windows for New Home Construction
Well-designed, high quality windows are essential to any new home construction. But what you want to know is how…
Light and UV Protection
The right windows will shower your new home with natural light while still protecting against UV fading. How? Low E Glass provides protection against UV fading, meaning you don’t have to worry about your beloved natural light fading your beloved couch.
Whether you live in the big city or the suburbs, sound control is important, especially on those lazy Saturday mornings when you want nothing more but to sleep in. Fortunately, there’s a window for that. The right windows can increase the acoustic performance of the outside envelope. Zzzzzzzzz!
Installing energy efficient windows in a new home can help reduce energy costs and improve comfort.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that an ENERGY STAR qualified home saves up to 30% more energy than a home built to the national energy code. So maybe it’s time to consider Energy Star qualified windows. The right windows – JELD-WEN Windows – can make all the difference.
