The Importance of Energy Efficient Windows

Energy Efficient Windows

Why upgrade to energy efficient windows? An average home loses 30% of its heat or conditioned air. This is mostly because of outdated technology, poorly sealed doors, and single-pane windows. This is why it is important, when choosing new windows, to make a decision that considers all aspects of energy saving. New windows will not only stop heat from escaping your home but will also reduce your home’s carbon footprint. Initially, energy-efficient windows might cost more at installation but you will see a significant saving in your bills going forward.  

Here we will discuss a few reasons as to why energy-efficient windows can make a major difference in your home.

Energy Efficiency Save You Money

One of the best ways to save money is by installing new windows. When you replace your old windows with newer models, you are insulating your house further which means a reduction in loss of heat and cool air. This will allow you to install a smaller and less expensive heating & cooling system. According to the Energy Saving Trust, on average, energy-efficient windows save up to £300/year on energy bills in a three-bedroom house. You can save up to £1200 in 4 years and have a nice holiday you have always wanted. 

Energy Efficient Windows Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

When you use less energy you will have a smaller carbon footprint – simple as that. The British Government now has a climate change bill that seeks to decrease emissions of greenhouse gasses by 60% by 2050. You want to contribute to the environment, right?

Energy Efficient Windows Stop Unwanted Outside Noise

Double glazed or Triple glazed windows not only keep the heat out but also stops outside noise from coming in. Living in a house with constant noises coming from trains, vehicles or other sources such as factories can spoil even the most idyllic places. Homes should be peaceful and shielded from the chaotic outside world as noise can have a significant impact on your quality of life.

Energy Efficiency Helps Your Home System

Poor insulation results in conditioned air leaving your house and lets outside heat inside. Installing new windows reduces the loss of energy, which means your home system won’t have to work so hard. Your air conditioner won’t have to run constantly if cool air is preserved in the room or your radiator might have to work less if your house is not letting heat escape. This extends the life of your home system.
