How energy efficient doors and windows can help keep you cool this summer

This summer in the Pacific Northwest has been one for the record books. We have had so many hot days and it’s been hard to cool off at times! But did you know that the windows and doors in your home could help you stay cool? If your windows and doors are old, leaky, and inefficient, replacing them could be a great investment option. Even just the smallest crack or leak can mean a significant loss in energy.  Replacement windows and doors will not only add value and comfort to your home, but you’ll start reaping the rewards right away: they’ll increase your energy efficiency, help you save money in the long run, and keep you cooler during the summer! Here’s how.

If you get new windows and doors, you’ll notice a big difference once they are in. When properly sealed then installed, energy efficient doors and windows will minimize your cooling bill during the summer significantly. Same goes with the winter weather too – you’ll notice a reduction in your heating costs at this time of the year. For the month of August only, we are offering free 4th surface low-E glass, which will help keep your space cool and comfortable. Windows and doors with the EnergyStar® label will help you know that the piece is proven to be energy efficient.
Damaged or inefficient windows or doors means that you’re letting hot air in during the summer and cold air out. The temperature inside will rise significantly, you’ll be uncomfortable, and your utility bill will be high!

There are many options for new windows and doors for your space! Not sure what the right solution is? We’re happy to help answer any questions regarding quality, energy performance ratings, or how it relates to your home’s unique design. This will help you narrow down your selection and help you determine which is best for your specific needs and most importantly, your budget.
