18 Jun Renew Your Energy Savings with Renewal by Andersen® of Florida
As the national temperatures rise alongside the cost of many other goods and services, it makes sense that you might be eyeing your energy bill with the intent to slash the cost if at all possible.
And if that’s the case, you might be wondering: Can I save much money by switching to more energy-efficient windows?
We’re here to tell you that absolutely, you can! Let’s take a look at the specifics:
Losing Out On Energy
“Energy efficient windows are an important consideration for both new and existing homes,” according to the U.S. Department of Energy. “Heat gain and heat loss through windows are responsible for 25%–30% of residential heating and cooling energy use.”
Specifically, your window might cause you to lose energy (and money) if it…
- Is outdated
- Has a cracked frame or sill
- Features a single pane
- Was installed improperly
- Does not include weatherstripping
- And more
And if you’re looking specifically at the numbers, be wary of…
- High U-factor ratings
- High solar heat gain coefficient ratings
- Low visible transmittance
- High air leakage
Starting the Journey to Saving Energy
The short answer is yes, you can absolutely save more money. But the real question, is how much?
Well, as reported by ENERGY STAR, residents in the Southern region of the United States can experience the following energy savings when they replace their windows with a more energy-efficient model:
- Replacing a single-pane window: $280 per year (a total of 31%)
- Replacing a double-pane window: $126 per year (a total of 17%)
And one of the first ways to upgrade? Look at the material. Vinyl, for example, is well-known as a durable option for window frames that enhances insulation while remaining strong in the wake of moisture.
Otherwise, check out the ENERGY STAR-rated windows that include labeled specifications according to the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) standards.
