If you've been shivering indoors the past week or so, it's probably time to install insulated-glass windows, skylights and doors.
The new year has gotten off to a chilly start with low temperatures hovering near freezing. Temperatures are expected to warm up some this coming week, but the colder weather – while a welcome change from summer’s sweltering heat – may have been less than welcome if it managed to creep into your home or business because of drafty windows, skylights or doors. If you’re sitting around with your teeth chattering while inside your home or business, that’s likely an indication that you need to think about replacing those windows, skylights and doors with insulated glass.
Insulated-glass replacement windows have two or three panes of glass in the frame with air or gas trapped between the layers. This “significantly increases their efficiency,” greendepot.com says.
“A significant amount of energy can pass through a standard window. Researchers have determined that windows in the U.S. consume about a third of a building’s heating and cooling energy,” greendepot says. “So, upgrading windows to super-insulated ones presents an opportunity to substantially reduce energy consumption and lower the cost of heating and cooling a home.”
That’s also true of offices and other commercial buildings.
