Does that monthly energy bill have you tearing your hair out? There are many ways for homeowners to cut down on their daily energy consumption, but few look to their windows. With the right set of windows, you could experience tremendous savings and a more comfortable environment inside your home. Consider these two amazing premium window upgrades when you need help with your energy bill!
Premium Window #1: Low E Windows
Low E windows provide a wonderful opportunity to block outside heat and ultraviolet radiation from sunlight from entering your home. Their design still allows plenty of natural light into your home, however. Apart from their environmentally friendly materials: Low E windows come with two especially handy benefits. First, the incredible insulating effect created by these windows reduces the strain on your HVAC system, is it doesn’t have to compensate for lost cooled air. Second: by minimizing the amount of UV rays entering your home, your furniture is safeguarded against fading.
Premium Window #2: Solar Screen
Sometimes however, you’d rather stick with the windows you already have. Solar screens are fastened directly in front of your existing windows and door glass. Once installed, these screens begin to absorb outside heat and prevent it from passing through your windows. Without this surplus warmth infiltrating your home, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain that nice cool air we all know and love. That means lower energy consumption and lower monthly utility bills. Who doesn’t love that?
