In today’s day and age, it’s important to think about cost effective investments. When you are putting money into your home, you want to be sure to not only feel good about the money you are spending, but have your money do double the work. And when you are making your money go further, you can benefit from the energy efficiency when combining replacement windows and window coverings together.
When you make the decision to replace windows, you are already making a smart investment. Older windows let air get around them, not doing a good enough job of keeping the heat out or letting the cold in. As a result, your heating and cooling bills can be sky high because so much of your heat or air conditioning is leaking out through the windows.
However, installing new windows will not only help to solve any leaks around their casings, but will also work to control the sunlight that penetrates through the glass. This will help to reduce your energy bills, leading to savings. In addition, you can increase your efficiency even further is by using energy efficient window treatments or coverings.
By installing the proper window treatments, you can reduce solar heat gain by 70% and heat loss by up to 25%. What does this mean for you? It means money is going back into your pocket. Combining new windows and energy efficient window treatments enables you to make a great impact on your energy bills.
Additionally, windows are a great investment in your home, whether you just want new windows for your use, or are planning on selling your home. When you add energy efficient window coverings on top of the new energy saving windows, you’ll be able to truly notice a difference in your heating and cooling bills.
