Why Cheap Windows Aren’t As Cost Effective

Why Cheap Windows Aren’t As Cost Effective

When it comes to the process of searching for new windows for your home, you may think that all windows are built the same! Or more specifically, cheaper windows are the same as more expensive windows. 

It’s important to know the differences between cheaper windows and pricier ones, especially in terms of cost effectiveness! Are more expensive windows worth the extra cost? 

What Makes One Window Better Than Another? 

Like all home exterior upgrades, installing new windows in your home is a big investment! When it comes to home improvement, opting for cheaper windows may seem like a tempting cost-saving measure upfront. However, it’s essential to consider the long-term impact on your energy bills and overall comfort. 

Windows can have a big impact on energy efficiency within your home! Some factors that can influence this include: 

  • Insulation: Well-insulated windows with multiple panes and gas-filled gaps provide a barrier against outdoor temperature extremes, helping to maintain a consistent indoor climate.
  • Low-E Coatings: Low-emissivity coatings on window glass reflect heat back into your home during the winter and block unwanted heat from entering during the summer, reducing the need for heating and cooling.
  • UV Protection: Windows with UV-blocking features can prevent UV rays from fading your furniture, flooring, and curtains, while also reducing solar heat gain.
  • Draft Prevention: Properly sealed and installed windows prevent drafts and air leaks, ensuring your HVAC system doesn’t have to work overtime to maintain a comfortable temperature.
  • Frame Material: Energy-efficient window frames made from materials like vinyl, fiberglass, or wood composites offer better thermal performance compared to traditional aluminum frames.
  • Energy Star Rating: Look for windows with the ENERGY STAR label, which signifies they meet strict energy efficiency standards set by the EPA, further reducing energy consumption.

In the end, energy-efficient windows not only enhance your home’s aesthetics but also prove to be a more cost-effective choice by reducing your energy consumption and utility bills! At Renewal by Andersen®, our specialty windows boast top-tier energy efficiency.
