If you are trying to figure out ways to make your home or business more energy-efficient, one of the best things you can do is to invest in energy-efficient windows. Every climate is unique, and here in North Carolina, we have very hot, humid summers, but we can also experience below-freezing temperatures during the winter months. Energy-efficient windows can help with both of those scenarios by reducing the heat transfer that occurs between the exterior and interior of your home, reducing your energy costs by as much as 50%.
There are benefits of energy-efficient windows extending beyond your energy bills, as well:
- Because you can leave your windows uncovered more of the time, you can increase the amount of natural light you enjoy regularly in your home.
- Your heating and cooling system will not have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable, which can reduce repair needs and extend the life of your HVAC system.
- Your carpet, furniture and other upholstery will be less susceptible to fading because the harmful rays of sunlight will be blocked and reflected while the light comes through.
Energy-efficient windows can even be customized to best match the climate of your area. Energy-efficient windows are available in just about every popular style of window – double hung windows, casement windows, awning windows, bow windows, bay windows and more. Whatever style of energy-efficient windows you choose, if they are EcoView windows, you can be sure that they will have innovative technology features like durable frames and sashes made from insulating vinyl and multiple panes of insulating glass that have argon gas between the panes.
