Increased Means Saving Money
Newer windows will be more energy efficient. If your home windows weren’t new when you moved into your home and you have lived there four or more years then your home could be leaking warm air out and letting cold air in. Modern windows are generally double pane or triple pane, which means there’s an extra barrier between your home and the outdoors.
Modern windows mean more insulation for your home and an extra layer of protection between you and the frigid outdoors. For starters, you’ll be able to recoup the cost of your investment quite quickly via energy savings. In some cases you’ll see a 30% reduction in your heating bill right away. The new installation windows and replacements windows we recommend meet or exceed Energystar ratings.
Over time your windows will actually pay for themselves, and they’ll be saving you money.
In Some Cases You Might Qualify For A Tax Credit
Sometimes you may qualify for a tax credit, which will reduce the overall price you have to pay for your energy efficient windows. These are tax breaks offered by the government to encourage consumers to make their homes more energy efficient.
