Energy Tip for Week of May 6, 2019

May 6, 2019

                               Reflect on This

Windows are significant source of energy waste, which can amount to 10-25% of your total heating or cooling bill. To prevent loss of heating or cooling through your windows, you can replace single-pane windows with double-pane, gas filled, “low-e” windows.

For homes in cold regions like ours, gas-filled windows with “low-e” coatings can significantly reduce your heating expenses. Not only do they insulate, but the “low-e” coating allows the lower sun angle of Winter to enter and provide free solar heat.

In warmer months, heat gain through windows can be a problem. In addition to minimizing cooling loss via the insulating effect of gas filled windows, low-e coatings on windows reduce solar heat gain by reflecting away more of the higher angle Summer sunlight, thus lowering the amount of thermal energy entering your home.
