In New England, our winters are cold and our summers are hot. The cost of heating and cooling is expensive, especially if our houses are not energy efficient. Replacing your current windows and doors to energy efficient ones is a great way to lower the cost of your utilities.
In climates such as our own, windows have represented a major source of unwanted heat loss/heat gain, discomfort, and condensation problems. It is now possible to have lower heat loss/heat gain, reduced air leakage, and window surfaces that improve comfort and minimize condensation. These graphs represent the heating cost savings and cooling cost savings over a year. As it is illustrated, changing to energy efficient windows can reduce your costs by more than 50%. With that savings, the cost of the new windows and doors will pay for themselves within a few years, all while you’re more comfortable in the hot and cold seasons.
