Replacement Windows and Energy Savings in Bloomington, IL

Windows are one of the most important pieces of our homes, and rightfully so – they deliver a variety of benefits for us – natural light, ventilation, protection from the weather, and the list goes on and on. On the other side, if they are old windows they can also be one of the causes of wasted energy costs. Why let those old windows make you pay more for heating and cooling when replacement windows can provide you with improved comfort and a spectacular new view?

There are steps we can take as homeowners to lessen the impact that windows have on our energy bills. And luckily, developments in window technology have given us higher efficiency windows that help everyone out as well.

When the weather in Bloomington finds its hottest and coldest points in the summer and winter, your heating and cooling systems are operating hard to keep your home comfortable. If you still have old windows, it might be time to think about replacement windows that can help ensure your comfort and reduce your energy costs.

So what can you do?

  • Look for replacement windows that are ENERGY STAR®-certified

  • Take advantage of curtains and shades to help keep the heat out in the summer and keep the warmth in during winter

  • If you have single-pane windows, buy replacement windows that are double-pane or triple-pane to help block the elements

  • Do your research on Low Emissivity (Low E) coatings, as they help reflect outside heat in the summer and keep heat in during the winter

While it might be an investment to purchase replacement windows, the bonuses of upgrading to take advantage of energy-saving technology is well worth it. Not only can it boost your home’s overall energy efficiency, it enhances comfort, a revitalized style and better functionality for your home.
