Why window efficiency matters during hot months.


 

Most homeowners begin worrying about window efficiency around the time that pumpkin spice candles start appearing on store shelves. Those with inefficient windows may even go as far as covering them with plastic, using a hairdryer to stretch the plastic across the window.

 

The staff of Integrity Roofing, Siding, and Windows would like to remind you that window efficiency matters during hot months as well.

 

According to a government website on energy, windows are responsible for 25% to 30% of both heating and cooling energy use. While the site goes on to say that there are steps that homeowners can take to make their existing windows more efficient, it also says that homeowners may need to replace their windows to achieve maximum efficiency.

 

But purchasing new, more efficient windows is only the first part of the process. The same website goes on to say that “even the most energy-efficient window must be properly installed to ensure energy efficiency and comfort.”

 

If you are concerned with the high cost of your heating and cooling bills, reach out to Integrity. Our staff will walk you through the process of choosing attractive and efficient windows for your home. But more important than that, our skilled technicians will expertly install your new windows so you can achieve maximum efficiency.
