When homes are built, the walls are insulated well and would do a great job of keeping a home warm or cool, at least until big holes are cut in the walls to add windows. Windows can be a main source of where you lose energy in your Fernandina Beach, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, Orange Park, St. Augustine, St. Johns County, and surrounding area home. It’s time to upgrade to energy-efficient windows from Preferred Upgrades, your experienced home upgrade company. Call us today to learn more about energy-efficient windows.
It’s The Panes That Help Make The Difference
Years ago we didn’t give much of a thought to how many panes of glass the windows in our home had. That has definitely changed, and today you are looking at a minimum of two panes of glass in your windows, and often you will want more. It’s these multiple panes of glass that help to make energy-efficient windows possible.
Just replacing a single pane window with a double pane window can result in a 20% or more savings in energy costs. Then you start including other additions to the window panes themselves, or adding an inert gas between the panes to help provide additional insulation, and you have a potent energy-efficient window that will save you money each month while adding to the value of your home.
Low-E glass coatings on the exterior of your new energy-efficient windows help to prohibit the ultraviolet light and infrared light from coming into the home. This helps to keep the cool air inside the house from heating up, reducing your energy costs.
Enhance Your Home in More Ways Than One
When you add energy-efficient windows to your Fernandina Beach, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, Orange Park, St. Augustine, St. Johns County, or surrounding area home, you are adding more than just quality windows that will help to lower your energy costs.
