Replacement windows and savings in Minneapolis, MN

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not uncommon to ponder their energy efficiency. Of course that is usually centered on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the developments in technology over the years, your replacement windows can give you much more than their own energy efficiency and might impact your monthly energy bills.

You might ask – “So how is this?”

If you break it down, when you invest in first-rate windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can help keep heat out during the warmer months and cold out during the colder months. Doing this means the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can decrease as well, saving you money over time.

When you consider everything, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a huge impact on the quantity of heat and/or air leaving your home due to leaky windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the improvement of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, may help decrease the amount of unwanted heat that enters in to your home.

Depending on the amount of time since your home last had replacement windows installed, you might potentially be losing a lot of indoor air due to unsealed and inefficient windows and around the installed window. If you’d like to learn more about all the replacement windows you have to select from Pella Windows and Doors, feel free to drop by the Minneapolis showroom, give us a shout at 612-249-7371 or schedule an appointment with us online through our online scheduler.
