According to the Energy.gov website, if your home has very old and/or inefficient windows, it might be more cost-effective to replace them than to try to improve their energy efficiency. New, energy-efficient windows eventually pay for themselves through lower heating and cooling costs, and sometimes even lighting costs.
For labeling energy-efficient windows, ENERGY STAR® has established minimum energy performance rating criteria by climate. However, these criteria don’t account for a home’s design, such as window orientation. This is where an expert in Northern Ohio replacement windows is the best choice to making sure you get the proper, most energy saving windows for your home.
A window’s energy efficiency is dependent upon all of its components. Window frames conduct heat, contributing to a window’s overall energy efficiency, particularly its U-factor. Glazing or glass technologies have become very sophisticated, and Joyce Factory Direct is committed to staying on the cutting edge of that technology.
When properly selected and installed, energy-efficient windows for the Cleveland and Akron Area can help minimize your heating, cooling, and lighting costs for an energy efficient home.
