Energy Saving Windows For Your Budget

Marquette, MI July 8, 2014 – Energy bills are expensive, especially when the weather cools off.  Fortunately, there are things you can do to reduce how much you spend on heating (and cooling!) your home.  Take a look at your windows.  Are they letting air out?  Do you use draft blockers?  Do they only have one pane of thin glass?  Old, leaky windows are a huge problem when it comes to keeping your home warm and your heating bills down.  There’s no summer break either.  Keeping your house cool is still expensive if you’ve got leaky windows letting all the cold air out.   Replace them with new windows that have been designed to keep your heating and cooling costs down.

Know your U-Factor!  The type of windows you’ll want depend on the climate you live in.  The U-Factor is a number that indicates the amount of heat the window lets through.  Those of us who live in colder climates like the U.P. will want windows with a lower U-Factor to prevent too much heat from escaping your home.

All windows should be Energy-Star approved for efficiency.  Most modern windows are made with multiple glass panes, separated by a space filled with either air or gas to act as a barrier that prevents precious heat from leaving the home.  Newer glass has also been specially treated to make sure that your home holds heat when it’s cold outside and cool air when it’s warm.  They also filter out UV rays while still drawing in lots of natural light.  Old metal frames that tended to pull heat out in the winter have been replaced by vinyl, fiberglass, and wood.

Stop wasting money on energy bills.  Keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer with new windows from Budget Windows today!
