The summer heat is rolling in, which means our electrical bills grow higher and higher. But this doesn’t have to be the case! Traditional, single pane, aluminum windows lack the insulating properties of energy-efficient windows, resulting in wasted energy and high utility bills. If your home is poorly insulated, your air conditioning chugs away, wasting power and money as the cool air seeps out. Learn more from Relief Windows about how to lower your electric bill this summer while also improving your home’s curb appeal!
Take It From The Pros
The right windows, doors, and siding will save you money. Cheaper alternatives do a poor job insulating your home, small cracks allow your air conditioning to escape and hot outside air to come in. Using energy-saving materials will help your air conditioning stay where it should, keeping you cool when the Louisiana weather is hot!
Many homes, especially older homes, have single-paned windows, but double-paned is on the rise. Why? A big reason is the efficiency of multi-paned windows. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates you’ll save a few hundred dollars a year when you replace your windows. This is especially true if you live in the south, where it is hot many months out of the year. An added bonus: not only do energy-efficient windows reduce energy use and greenhouse gases, but they also reduce noise.
But without a professional’s work, this energy-saving tactic will do little to help you. Improper installation can make this entire plan crumble, so it’s imperative to find the right company to install your windows. And, you’re in luck if you’re in the Baton Rouge area, Relief Windows is always a call away or a short drive to visit our showroom!
How Much Could I Save?
When it comes to windows, we know what we’re talking about. And our energy-efficient windows do their job by saving you money in each energy bill. But how much does that really mean? It all depends on how big your home is and how hot or cold it gets outside. The U.S. Department of Energy says that heat gain and loss through inferior windows is responsible for 25% – 30% of residential heating and cooling energy use. That’s a lot of money! Our multi-paned, thick windows will instantly make your home more comfortable and reduce energy costs before you know it.
