Replacement Windows and Energy Savings in Gaithersburg, MD

Windows are one of the most critical pieces of our homes, and rightfully so – they offer a variety of perks for us – natural light, ventilation, protection from the weather, and the list goes on and on. On the flip side, if they are old windows they can also be one of the culprits in wasted energy costs. Why let those old windows make you pay more for heating and cooling when replacement windows can provide you with improved comfort and a breathtaking new view?

There are steps we can take as homeowners to reduce the impact that windows have on our energy bills. And luckily, advancements in window technology have given us higher efficiency windows that help everyone out as well.

When the weather in Gaithersburg finds its hottest and coldest points in the summer and winter, your heating and cooling systems are running hard to keep your home comfortable. If you still have old windows, it might be time to think about replacement windows that can help maintain your comfort and decrease your energy bills.

So what can you do?

  • Hunt for replacement windows that are ENERGY STAR®-certified

  • Take advantage of curtains and shades to help keep the heat out in the summer and keep the warmth in during winter

  • If you have single-pane windows, buy replacement windows that are double-pane or triple-pane to help shield the elements

  • Look up information on Low Emissivity (Low E) coatings, as they help reflect outside heat in the summer and keep heat in during the winter

While it might be an investment to get replacement windows, the bonuses of upgrading to utilize energy-saving technology is well worth it. Not only can it improve your home’s overall energy efficiency, it adds comfort, a revitalized style and better functionality for your home.
