Get Ready for Winter With ENERGY STAR Vinyl Replacement Windows
Stay Warmer with Vinyl Replacement Windows
On chilly fall nights do you add an extra blanket to the bed or avoid sitting in your favorite chair next to the window?
Old windows can leak or work inefficiently, creating cold spots. That’s because the inside surface of a leaky window gets cold and pulls away body heat, making you feel chilly even with the thermostat set to a comfy 70 degrees.
But ENERGY STAR-certified vinyl replacement windows keep your home warmer, letting you watch the leaves fall from your favourite chair – even when the temperature outside drops.
ENERGY STAR Windows Save Money, Too
Not only do more efficient windows use less energy (and reduce emissions from greenhouse gases in the process), they also save you money.
Installing vinyl replacement windows this fall can shrink your energy bills — and your carbon footprint — by an average of 12 percent. According to energystar.gov, the typical home will save:
- $101–$583 and 1,006–6,205 pounds of CO2 (equivalent to 51 to 317 gallons of gasoline) a year when replacing single-pane windows
- $27–$197 and 246–2,001 pounds of CO2 (equivalent to 13 to 102 gallons of gasoline) a year when replacing double-pane windows
Here’s how it breaks down nationally:
Keep Your Home a Consistent Temperature
If some rooms feel like a sauna in the summer or a refrigerator in the winter, your windows may be to blame. That’s because a standard double-pane window without ENERGY STAR-certification lets about 75 percent of the sun’s heat into your house.
With our ENERGY STAR-certified windows your home will stay a consistent temperature even on fall’s chilliest nights. And if you’re worried about this making the house too dark, don’t. While energy-efficient windows reduce heat gain, they don’t sacrifice light. You get the bright, airy space you crave without the uncomfortable temperature extremes.
Protect Your Home From Sun Damage
With our JELD-WEN and Crystal vinyl replacement windows, you don’t have to worry about your favourite TV-watching chair, photos or wood floors fading in sunlight. That’s because special coatings on our windows reduce UV sun damage to furniture, carpets and floors.
These coatings act like sunscreen for your house, protecting your beloved valuables from harmful ultraviolet light – all without sacrificing visible light. These special coatings are so efficient, they can reduce fading by up to 75 percent.
So before winter arrives, give those old windows the boot. Nothing keeps your home more comfortable all year long than ENERGY STAR-certified vinyl replacement windows.
