Have you been spending a bit more time at home than usual? Maybe you noticed that your indoor temperature isn’t as regulated as you thought it would be? Your windows could be to blame. Letting in too much sunlight and letting out too much air conditioning can make your home hotter and end up wasting your money. And we all know in south Louisiana we can’t afford to get much hotter! Discover more about the energy-efficient windows Baton Rouge needs.
Why Do I Need Energy-Efficient Windows In Baton Rouge?
If you’re a resident of Baton Rouge—or anywhere in south Louisiana—we don’t need to tell you that the weather is nearly always on the warm side. According to U.S. climate data, the average high temperature in the capital city is over 80 degrees for six months out of the year. That means half of the time here: it’s HOT. We know how the heat affects our bodies, but have you ever thought about how it affects your home—specifically through your windows? The effect of the sun on your windows can literally add up on your utility bills. Energy-efficient windows are the answer!
What Does “Energy-Efficient” Mean?
In its most basic definition, energy efficiency means eliminating energy waste. Your windows can waste energy if they’re not securely fitted. During winter months, they’ll let cold air and drafts in. That means, during the summer, your expensive air conditioning escapes and raises your utility bills. Custom-built, energy-efficient windows are not only built to last but will make your home more energy-efficient, which helps with energy savings. Are you looking for complete assurance that your windows are as energy-efficient as possible? Look for the Energy Star rating. These windows have been independently tested and verified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) to meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Do Your Windows Need Thermal Protection?
On our YouTube channel, you can watch an experiment we did to show the impact of thermal protection on your windows. In this heat lamp demonstration, we replicated the heat transference the sun would be doing inside of your home. Each side of a carousel around the lamp has a pane of glass from a different type of window. The most protective and best-performing window decreased UV ray penetration by about 80%. Not only will this help keep your home cooler. It will also help prevent the sun from fading your floors, artwork, and upholstery.
