Home improvement jobs can be expensive, but when they add equity to your home or provide you with cost savings in other areas, this can often more than make up for their cost. One such home improvement job is new window installations with energy-efficient windows.
In her article, Energy Efficient Windows: A Win-Win Solution, Laura First ofNetworx expands on the double benefits of having new, energy-efficient windows installed in your home. As Firzst writes, “Energy efficient windows are double winners. Not only do they decrease heat loss from your home on chilly winter days and nights, they also work to keep out hot air during the peak of summer. The win-win result is that you will feel comfortable while using less A/C or heat, saving both precious energy and money on your utility bills.”
Firszt goes on to explain the advantages of double paned glass, low emissivity film coating, and storm windows. She also gives additional advice about how you can increase the efficiency of the windows you already have, such as by adding shutters, awnings, weather stripping, caulk or heavy draperies.
