The Colorado summer heat can be relentless, but there are several ways to beat it and keep your home cool. Especially during the summer months, a spike in your utility bill may be normal as your HVAC system is working harder than usual to try to beat the outside heat. One of the best ways to reduce your energy bill is to install new energy-efficient windows. Energy-efficient windows are designed to reduce heat gain from the sun, minimize air leakage, and provide better insulation.
New windows are an important aesthetic feature of your home but can also contribute to your home’s overall comfort and keep your home cool during the hot summer months.
Top Reasons to Replace Your Windows this Summer
Enhanced Insulation & Energy Efficiency
Old windows often have air leaks and inefficient insulation, resulting in increased energy consumption and higher utility bills. Vinyl replacement windows are a great choice to keep your house cool this summer as the frames offer extra insulation making it easier to maintain a comfortable temperature. Installing double-pane energy-efficient windows provides improved insulation while keeping the cool air produced by your air conditioner inside and preventing hot outdoor air from seeping in.
Choosing Windows with SHGC Rating
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) is the amount of solar radiation admitted through a window, releasing heat inside a home. An SHGC rating measures how well a window blocks heat from sunlight. The lower the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, the lower the solar heat the window lets into your home.
Low-emissivity (Low-E) glass is another feature of new energy-efficient windows. Low-E is one of the best solutions for reducing heat transfer through a window. With older windows, heat transfer via radiation is allowed to pass through since there is no coating to stop it. Windows that have Low-E Technology applied to the glass during the manufacturing process with a thin, transparent coating that allows visible light to pass through but reflects heat radiation. This means that while natural light illuminates your home, the heat from the sun is significantly reduced, maintaining a cooler indoor temperature.
Reduced Air Leakage:
When installed by a professional installer at New Windows for America, we will ensure that your new energy-efficient windows are tightly sealed to prevent air leakage. Drafty windows can let warm air in and cool air out, forcing your air conditioner to work harder. By eliminating air leaks, energy-efficient windows create a more stable and comfortable indoor environment while reducing the load on your cooling system.
Do you live on a busy street or have noisy neighbors? New replacement energy-efficient windows can often block outside noise pollution. Investing in new double-pane or even triple-pane windows can help dampen outside noise providing immediate benefits within the home. They can minimize the amount of outdoor noise that enters your home, providing a more peaceful and comfortable living space. If you’re looking for a way to improve your home’s comfort and save money on your energy bills, consider installing new replacement windows.
