If you want to save on energy bills, you should consider installing insulated-glass windows in your home or business.
Now that the weather is cooling off, you’re probably seeing a drop in your utility bills. But that could just be temporary because colder weather is just around the corner. And, as the U.S. Department of Energy points out: “Windows can be one of your home's most attractive features. Windows provide views, daylighting, ventilation, and heat from the sun in the winter. Unfortunately, they can also account for 10% to 25% of your heating bill by letting heat out.”
Drafty windows don’t just cost in the winter, the energy department says. They also contribute to higher utility bills in the summer because “your air conditioner must work harder to cool hot air from sunny windows.”
The department suggests that, if you have single-pane windows, you consider replacing them with double-pane windows made of high-performance glass to improve your home’s energy performance. Not only will your utility bill drop, you’ll also see “benefits of added comfort, improved aesthetics, and functionality.”
