If you have noticed a lower temperature inside your home over the past few months, then it could be a sign that your old windows may need replacing. Windows that are ageing may not be able to cope as well with the weather anymore and could allow heat to escape through the glass.
Energy efficient windows are designed to help you keep the cold air out of your home whilst keeping the warm air in. If you are considering new replacement windows and you’re after something that is efficient, secure, and attractive, then these energy efficient windows are perfect for your home.
What Are Energy Efficient Windows?
Energy efficient windows are exactly as they sound, these windows feature multiple glazing and a low-e (low emissivity) coating to help minimise the use of artificial heating and cooling in your home. Additionally, these types of windows are developed with exceptional weather seals to reduce the amount of hot and cool air entering or escaping your home through the gaps around the frame. All of these amazing features effectively help you to save on your energy bills. These windows are designed to be able to insulate against the heat and the cold up to four times better than your traditional windows.
Benefits of Energy Efficient Windows
If your existing windows are ageing and need replacing, then here are a few benefits which an energy efficient window can provide for your home.
Energy Cost Savings – Having energy efficient windows means that it can help you cut down on energy usage as it removes the need for your heater or air conditioner to overcompensate for air leakage, which will be very beneficial during the summer and winter months. Not only will this save you money on your energy bills, but it also makes your home much eco-friendlier.
Increase Protection for Furniture – Ultraviolet rays can get through the glass and damage carpets, wood, fabrics, and furniture. All energy efficient windows feature a special coating that minimises the amount of UV rays that get through the window.
Noise Reduction – As these types of windows feature multiple glazing they have an innate sound reduction ability. These windows are designed to seal out the exterior conditions so they will also be effective at reducing outside ambient noise. For homes that are built close to each other, these windows are often highly desirable.
Enhanced Security – One of the main benefits of these windows is that they provide greater protection for your home against intrusions. These windows are built to be resilient and tamper-free which makes these windows great for increasing security in your home.
Low Maintenance – As these windows help to minimise energy transfer, the likelihood of condensation build-up is greatly reduced. As a result, there will be a lower risk of mould which may be more beneficial for those with asthma. These windows also feature a UV-resistant coating which helps to repel water spots and dirt build-up on the outside, effectively reducing the amount of cleaning and maintenance required.
