Older windows are often the culprit for escaping heat in the winter time. Over the years they may have worn out from constant use and exposure to weather. In some cases weather-stripping, hardware, and frame materials can suffer wear and tear and start letting in cold drafts. Windows have evolved from single pane, to double, triple glazed, to double layer insulated systems. Is it time your home had a window replacement?
According to Energy Star, energy efficient windows, doors, and skylights will:
– reduce your home energy costs by 7 to 12 percent
– reduce or eliminate cold drafts
– collect less condensation
– reduce noise from outside
