  • Saving Energy Costs with Double Pane Windows This Summer

    When it comes to saving energy during the summer, the focus usually lies on air conditioner efficiency. While maintaining your air conditioner is certainly important, there are other factors that can affect energy consumption and costs. For example, as sunlight enters your home through your windows, the temperature of your home increases, forcing your air conditioner to work harder. Here is how you can save energy and reduce costs with double pane windows this summer.

    What Are Double Pane Windows?

    As the name suggests, double pane windows are windows made out of two sheets of glass. Generally a small space is left between the two sheets of glass and is filled with a gas like argon. This helps to improve the window’s ability to insulate your home. The design of double pane windows is not the only factor that contributes to its efficiency, however. The sheets of glass used in double pane windows are made from low emissivity or low-e glass. Low-e glass prevents heat transfer by reflecting a greater amount of sunlight away from your home.

    What Are the Benefits of Double Pane Windows?

    Replacing your home’s single pane windows with double pane windows has a number of important benefits. First and foremost, double pane windows can dramatically improve your home’s energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer. Indeed, double pane windows can be up to 50% more efficient than single pane ones. This means that you can enjoy natural light during the hot summer months without worrying about the temperature inside your home increasing too much.

    Don’t let high energy costs put a damper on your summer. Replacing your old windows with double pane windows is a smart renovation project that will improve your home’s energy efficiency and save you money. If you want to learn more about the benefits of switching to double pane windows, call Window World at (321) 282-6200.

  • Signs It’s Time To Have Your Windows Replaced

    Neglecting to replace old windows can have a serious impact on your home’s energy efficiency. Looking out for signs that your windows are beyond repair can help you determine the right time to invest in replacements. One of the most obvious signs that your windows need to be replaced is if you feel a draft when the windows are closed. Drafts are a sign that your windows are not insulating your home and in fact letting air escape. Poor insulation is also to blame if you notice that your windows are developing a frosty glaze on the inside of the glass pane or if they show signs of condensation.

  • Keeping the Summer Heat Out of Your Home

    Taking steps to keep the summer heat out of your home is about more than just comfort. Keeping the heat out of your home will also reduce your energy consumption and save you money. Here are some tips on how to keep the summer heat out of your home.

    Replace Old Windows

    Replacing your home’s old windows is one of the most effective ways to keep heat out. Single pane windows, for example, can lead to much higher energy consumption because they keep so little heat out. Double pane windows, on the other hand, are specifically designed to prevent heat transfer. The sheets are made out of low-emissivity glass, which increases the amount of light they reflect away from your home. Furthermore, the small space between the two sheets of glass contains argon gas, which further improves double pane windows’ insulation .

    Invest in New Vinyl Siding

    Heat does not just enter your home through your windows. Old, dilapidated siding can also contribute to the problem. If your home’s siding is in bad shape, consider replacing it with state of the art vinyl siding. Vinyl siding is durable and energy efficient. The Window World Prodigy Insulated Wall Vinyl Siding System, for example, boasts 1.5 inches of foam insulation. This helps keep your home comfortable throughout the year.

    Home renovations like replacing old windows and improving your home’s siding are investments. Because of their impact on energy efficiency, these renovations end up paying for themselves. In addition, they can also improve your home’s appearance and its resale value. Regardless of the renovation, however, it is critical to ensure that you hire a contractor who is trained in proper installation. When improperly installed, windows and siding do little to improve energy efficiency.  If you want to learn more about how you can keep the summer heat out of your home and reduce your energy costs, call Window World at (321) 282-6200.
