The Benefits of Energy Star-Qualified Windows
The greatest beauty of a window is its ability to let in the best parts of the outside world while repelling the worst parts. A window lets you enjoy the moods of the season and allows your home to bathe in natural sunlight, all while keeping bugs and weather out of your house. The best windows are able to keep your house inside your house, too. They keep the warmth of a house in winter and the cool of a house in summer from leaking into the nature outside, too. Windows from Energy Star are experts at this prime balance.
Choosing the Best Windows for You
Windows are not one-size -fits-all. The needs they fill vary depending on climate and personal preference, and these update at a fairly regular pace. They must pass the qualifications set forth by the EPA and should be considered based on your home’s personal needs. If you’re considering a new set of windows, follow these steps:
- Find your climate zone as listed by Energy Star
- Choose a qualified retailer near you
- Make sure that retailer carries Energy Star windows
- Ask specifically for Energy Star products when choosing your order
- Find the best deal for your needs
Efficiency at Work
An Energy Star window uses the best technology to keep your house separate from the outside. By layering glass around harmless insulating gasses and sealing everything in place with a sturdy frame, the windows provide the best protection from the outside weather possible, protecting themselves and your home from changes in temperatures outside while retaining the indoor temperatures you enjoy. The materials aren’t uniform, either, and come in various combinations that vary for different climates. The right window can fit in any hole built into your house; doors, walls, and skylights are all serviced by Energy Star to make sure your house is as insulated as possible. The frames for the windows are also variable and come in a wide array of styles and materials in order to match your preferences for both style and effectiveness.
When replacing with Energy Star, you save money. If your house is equipped with worn-out single pane windows, replacing them with Energy Star can save you up to $465 a year. The replacements pay for themselves quickly. For mid-temperature to cold climates, the change in indoor protection is stunning on both monetary and climate levels.
