Old windows can cause your energy expenses to spike through air leaks and high heat transfer rates. These issues cause your heating and cooling systems to work harder, leading to higher energy bills. Fortunately, window replacement can help.
Today, V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding discusses how replacing your windows can help reduce your monthly energy bills.
How Much You’ll Save
What to Look for When Replacing Your Windows
First, look at the air leakage rating of the unit, which determines how much air can enter your home through the window. Next, look for the U-Factor, which measures how well your window can keep heat from escaping your home, making it useful during the winter.
Finally, pay attention to the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC), which shows how well a product resists unwanted heat gain, which is important during the summer. For all three of these requirements, you want the lowest numbers possible.
