With summer temperatures reaching the triple digits each year, people who live in the Treasure Valley are often on the lookout for ways to stay cool while keeping their energy bills under control. Replacing your old windows with new energy-efficient ones can help. While many home improvement projects increase the value of your home, energy-efficient Boise replacement windows do something better. They cut the cost of your summer cooling bills!
How Well Energy Efficient Windows Work
At Pacific Home & Patio, we could talk about all the ways how energy efficient windows keep your home cooler. That discussion would include things like how they allow sunlight to enter your home but redirects heat back to its source. We would also talk about the importance of choosing the right energy-efficient windows that offer low solar heat gain coefficients (SHGC), which measure how much heat enters through the glass. Air leakage would also be a big part of the conversation as less is better — because you don’t want your money to go out the window literally.
How Much Money You Can Expect To Save
While we could discuss all the benefits and features of Boise replacement windows (and we will during a free, in-home consultation), many Treasure Valley homeowners are more interested in how well they work rather than how they work.
A typical homeowner can save up to $450 per year when they switch their current single pane windows to energy-efficient Boise replacement windows. Even if you’re upgrading from double pane windows, you’ll save a significant amount of money. You also have to consider that these are typical savings. Hot Idaho summers are not typical, so your savings could be even greater.
Knowing When It’s Time For Boise Replacement Windows
How do you know it’s time for Boise replacement windows? For some Treasure Valley homeowners, the signs are clear:
- Your home has old single-pane windows
- You can feel a draft near your windows
- Your windows are difficult to open or close
- You can feel how hot it is outside by touching your windows
Even if you don’t notice some of these signs, you could still be wasting money with non-energy efficient windows. If your home has older windows, there’s a good possibility you could save money on expensive cooling costs and keep your home more comfortable by upgrading to energy-efficient Boise replacement windows.
