Energy efficiency is one of the top reasons to replace your home’s windows. If your heating and cooling bills have been unstable and you find that they are rising with no explanation, take a look at your windows. Drafty windows (and doors) are responsible for much of your energy loss. In fact, according to Energy.gov, new windows can help reduce heat loss by up to 20 percent.
Quality Windows Deliver Quality Results
With the right windows, staying comfortable indoors through all seasons is an achievable goal. The windows you choose should be of high quality, with the latest energy-efficiency features. For example, here at Rescom, we only install Bristol Windows. They not only offer beauty and durability for your home, they also help you reduce energy loss, as evidenced by the ratings shown on the NFRC label present on our windows. It doesn’t hurt that they come with an industry leading 50-year window warranty!
Your windows should be built to withstand the elements common to New England. From ice and snow in winter to heat and humidity in summer, your windows are tested for durability every single season. How will they score? From sturdy frames to glass construction, your windows should form a weather-tight barrier for your home, a barrier that will keep you comfortable and last for years to come.
Energy lost through inefficient windows is costing you money. Period. Bristol windows boast a U-Value that’s 30% lower than Energy Star’s lowest U-Value requirement thanks to their reinforced vinyl frame designs. This material doesn’t absorb or retain extreme temperatures of heat or cold, which means the temperature is neutral to the touch.
To keep your interior comfortable during summer, you need to limit the amount of sunlight getting into your home, especially if the sun is shining directly on one side of the house for several hours. The solution is Low-E (low emissivity) glass that is available in our windows. Low-E glass features a microscopically thin coating that reflects harmful UV rays and helps to keep your home from getting too warm in the summer, or too cold in the winter.
Choosing quality windows means nothing unless they are installed the right way. Precision installation is the backbone of any window replacement project. That’s why you need windows that are customized for your home, not bought off the shelf from some big-box store. Through precise measurements and proven installation methods, your windows should form a perfect fit.
