Energy Saving Home Windows

Your home is meant to be your sanctuary, the place where you can go to relax and not worry about all the stresses of the outside world. But when your windows are leaky and your home isn’t energy efficient, even being at home can be incredibly stressful! You can’t get comfortable because your thermostat isn’t doing enough to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, but you’re afraid to crank it up or down further because you’re afraid of how much your next electricity bill is going to be.

The best solution to this problem is a really simple one: energy saving home windows from The Glass Experts! Maybe it sounds counter intuitive to say you can save money by spending money, but in this case you really can. Every day that goes by with energy inefficient windows, you are spending more money than you need to be to heat and cool your house. As soon as you have energy efficient windows that don’t let the inside air out or the outside air in, you are no longer having to waste money on making your thermostat work too hard. And with our wide variety of different options and models of energy saving windows at The Glass Experts, there’s something to help you save money no matter what your budget is!

  • How are windows inefficient? Basically, there are a few different ways that windows can waste energy. First and most obvious, they can have drafts. This is when air seeps or even blows into your house from the outside. If it’s cold outside, you will feel a cold spot in front of the window. If it’s hot outside, you will feel heat coming from the window. Another way is by radiating heat in. This is good in the winter but terrible in the summer. It is the hot car effect translated to your windows: if your windows are getting too much strong sunlight directly into them during the summer, they are going to be radiating the heat inwards and making the room inside feel like an oven. Of course, then there is also just heat transfer – especially with old fashioned, single paned windows, there is no insulation there to keep the glass from absorbing the temperature outside and making the air on either side of the window colder or hotter to match what is on the other side of the window.

  • How do energy saving windows work? So the first step is to find out exactly what your inefficiency problem is so you can work to solve it. Then you go to our list of products here at The Glass Experts, where you will be able to find a wide variety of windows that address your energy saving needs. You may find that you need a window that will block drafts and reflect away heat. Or you may just need better insulation in your windows to keep them from letting the outside temperature radiate inwards.
