Most of your home’s energy loss usually occurs in windows and doors. Drafty or leaky windows will allow unconditioned air to enter your living spaces, causing your HVAC system to work harder than it should. This will not only cause a strain on the equipment but also a significant increase in your heating and cooling costs.
Replacing old windows will improve your home’s appeal and reduce your energy costs. Keep reading to discover why you should invest in energy-efficient windows.

Older windows are more likely to drafts, air leaks, and energy loss. With energy-efficient windows, you can enjoy a more comfortable home. Today’s high-performance windows offer better insulation and maintain a higher surface temperature on interior glazing, helping achieve your desired indoor temperature.

Maintain Healthy Indoor Humidity Levels

It can also result in static electricity shocks, dry throat and skin irritations. While humidifying the air can temporarily give you relief, bring your RH at least 40 percent can minimize condensation on windows, prevent mold growth and avoid early deterioration of window components.
