Temperature extremes bring out the worst in old windows. When it gets super cold outside you start to realize just how much your heating system has to run to keep your home comfortable.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Energy efficient windows work in several ways to keep your home comfortable during the cold winter months:
- Argon gas between the panes of glass are super effective in keeping heat from passing out of your home. (And when summer comes, argon gas will keep heat from coming in.)
- Multiple layers of weatherstripping keep cold air from drafting through the window.
- Extremely tight tolerances ensure your new windows do not have gaps that will leak cold air.
- When properly installed, there are layers of insulation around the outside of the window frame that keep air from getting around your window and coming in from behind your window trim.
Just one inefficient window can leak as much air into your home as a hole the size of a brick. If you have 15 windows in your home, it’s like having a hole the size of 15 bricks in your wall. No wonder you have to run the heat so much!
Not all energy-efficient windows are made the same.
