According to the EPA (The United States Environmental Protection Agency), the average home can save anywhere from $126 – $465 per year by replacing their inefficient single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR-certified windows. Typically these savings are gained by installing double-pane windows with low-e glass.
If you’re unfamiliar with the term low-e, this should help: Low-e stands for low-emissivity, and low-e windows are windows where the panes have been coated with a thin coating of material that makes them more energy efficient. Windows with low-e coating reflect more heat away from the surface of the glass, making them more efficient at keeping heat inside in the winter and cool air inside in the summer.
Cost-effectiveness and Safety
When it comes to energy efficient windows, multi-pane windows with low-e coating are the cream of the crop. In fact, they are the most cost-effective way to increase the efficiency of your windows. And that’s not all, they can also help reduce the amount of dangerous UV radiation that enters your home, protecting people and your furnishings.
Studies have shown that the two most important factors that shoppers consider when they’re looking at homes are energy efficiency and exterior maintenance. New homeowners simply don’t want to buy a home that needs a lot of exterior maintenance, which old windows do. Replacement windows are low-maintenance and energy efficient, which gives them added curb appeal and value with most shoppers, even more than things like location and proximity to schools and parks.
