One of the best parts of building your own home from the ground up is that you can customize every little detail exactly how you like. Consequently, one of the worst parts of building your own home is that you have a lot of decisions to make. There are more than a few odds and ends to consider. But before you start thinking about bathroom fixtures and kitchen appliances, it is important to hammer out the details of one of your home’s most important features: its windows.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), windows account for 25-40% of your annual heating and cooling costs. The right windows can help cut that figure in half.
What You Need to Know about Energy Efficient Windows
The right windows can make a world of difference in your home. Affecting more than just the amount of natural light that enters your home, windows also play a pivotal role in comfort, aesthetics, and, perhaps most importantly, energy efficiency. In fact, the right windows – Energy Star qualified windows – can save homeowners up to 30% more energy than a home built to the national energy code.
These windows also pay for themselves over time.
“New, energy-efficient windows eventually pay for themselves through lower heating and cooling costs, and sometimes even lighting costs,” according to the DOE.
