Replacement Windows and Energy Savings in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Replacement Windows and Energy Savings in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Windows are one of the most crucial pieces of our homes, and rightfully so – they provide various perks for us – natural light, ventilation, protection from the weather, and the list goes on and on. On the contrary, if they are old windows they can also be one of the culprits in wasted energy costs. Why let those old windows make you pay more for heating and cooling when replacement windows can provide you with improved comfort and a spectacular new view?

There are steps we can take as homeowners to lessen the impact that windows have on our energy bills. And luckily, advancements in window technology have afforded us higher efficiency windows that help everyone out as well.

When the weather in Santa Fe gets to its hottest and coldest points in the summer and winter, your heating and cooling systems are working hard to keep your home comfortable. If you still have old windows, it could be time to think about replacement windows that can help ensure your comfort and lower your monthly energy bills.

So what can you do?

  • Hunt for replacement windows that are ENERGY STAR®-certified

  • Utilize curtains and shades to help keep the heat out in the summer and keep the warmth in during winter

  • If you have single-pane windows, buy replacement windows that are double-pane or triple-pane to help shield the elements

  • Look up information on Low Emissivity (Low E) coatings, as they help reflect outside heat in the summer and keep heat in during the winter

While it might be an investment to buy replacement windows, the bonuses of upgrading to utilize energy-saving technology is well worth it. Not only can it boost your home’s overall energy efficiency, it increases comfort, a reinvigorated style and greater functionality for your home.
