The idea of making your home as green as possible may seem like a big task to handle. Then again, it can be pulled off without making any drastic changes to your lifestyle. Investing in replacement windows is something you can consider if you want your home to be eco-friendly.
Advanced Roofing Inc., one of the top local roof repair contractors, also specializes in window installations. Here’s what you need to know about new windows and how they can help you achieve a green home.
The Cost of Window Installation
A sustainable lifestyle is at the heart of living in a green home. That said, it is natural for homeowners to want to know if taking on this change will cost them more. Fortunately, the cost of installing new windows remains the same, and if you’re tackling this project, consider choosing energy-efficient units that will help you drive energy costs down. Apart from this, they help make your home interior comfortable while requiring less maintenance.
Similar to some residential roofing systems, new windows can help increase your home’s energy efficiency. By simply replacing your old, inefficient units with new and improved counterparts, you can boost your home’s energy efficiency by 30 percent or more. The benefits will be even greater if you take advantage of green remodeling and design to harness natural lighting or passive solar heating.
Features of Energy-Efficient Windows
Today’s window units come with features that can make your home more eco-friendly. Check window glass if they have special coatings that prevent heat loss in winter and reduce the flow of heat toward your home interior during the summer.
Also, consider windows with at least two glass panes. These types of windows can help lower heating costs by up to 15%. The more your window has glass panes, the more energy-efficient your home becomes. As with window frame materials, choose those with low conductivity such as wood, fiberglass, and vinyl.
Apart from commercial flat roof repair and residential roof replacement, the pros of Advanced Roofing Inc. are also equipped and trained to handle quality window replacement. We take the time to find the best window choice for you, helping you choose durable products while taking your needs into account.
