Energy efficiency is not just a trend anymore. It is a necessity in our daily lives. Many of the products and services that we use every day – from hybrid vehicles to our heating and cooling systems, boast incredible energy efficiency.
Not sure where to start when it comes to energy efficiency? Your home’s windows are a great place to begin. When installed by our professional team at Lifetime Windows and Doors, new, energy efficient windows benefit both your wallet and the planet. Here are some benefits of investing in energy efficient windows.
#1: You’ll save money in heating and cooling costs.
Whether it is the heat of the summer or the cold days of winter, your home’s heating and cooling system works hard to keep you comfortable. New windows keep the temperature inside your home tightly sealed, so no air will leak in or out. This enhanced insulation allows for reduced utility bills. Also, it helps prolong the life of your HVAC system, because it doesn’t have to work harder than necessary to heat or cool your home.
#2: You’ll have more natural light.
Natural light transforms the space in your home! With natural light, your mood and focus improve. Natural light also brings in warmth, so on the cool fall and winter days, you can benefit from the sunlight streaming through your windows.
#3: Protected furniture.
Energy efficient windows have special coating that provide protection from the sun’s UV rays. This preserves objects such as couches, chairs, rugs, and paintings.
#4: Your home will be quieter.
Because new windows are insulated and airtight, they provide incredible soundproofing. This keeps exterior noise at bay and allows you to relax and unwind comfortably in a quiet space.
New windows are an investment that you will enjoy immediately! Not to mention, they add to the value of your home. Not sure which windows are right for your space?
