Are you wondering if your home might benefit from new energy efficient windows? Windows are a key element to consider when looking to increase your home’s energy efficiency and value. The weather conditions outside your home should not appear on the inside. Inefficient windows can leak, allowing water to come into your house behind the walls, this is a leading cause of mold and mildew in homes. This is a sign that your windows need to be replaced with new energy efficient windows.
Are Your Windows Functioning Properly?
If opening and closing is a difficult task, the glass is loose, or the seal between the sash and frame have weakened, it could be time to replace your windows.
Single-pane Glass is not Energy Efficient
Many older homes still use their original windows built with single-pane glass. Simply put, single-pane glass is not energy efficient. They also have an increased chance of breakage. Replacing old single-pane windows with new energy efficient windows can provide substantial energy savings. As well as a major boost in curb appeal, equity and resale value.
What About the Cost of New Energy Efficient Windows?
