Replacement Windows and Savings

Replacement windows and savings in Davenport, IA

Published on

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not uncommon to think about their energy efficiency. Of course that is typically focused on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the advancements in technology over the years, your replacement windows can offer much more than their own energy efficiency and might impact your monthly energy costs.

You might ask – “So how is this?”

If you break it down, when you invest in high-quality windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can aid in keeping heat out during the summer and cold out during the colder months. Doing this means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can go down as well, saving you money over time.

When you think it through, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a great impact on the amount of heat and/or air leaving your home due to unsealed windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the development of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, may help lower the amount of unwanted heat that enters in to your home.

Depending on the length of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you could potentially be losing a lot of indoor air through unsealed and inefficient windows and around the installed window. If you’d like to see all the replacement windows you have to select from Pella Windows and Doors, feel free to stop by the Davenport showroom, give us a ring at 563-202-8576 or schedule an appointment with us online through our online scheduler.
