5 Benefits of Installing Energy Star Windows

Windows are an important component of any home. Not only are they responsible for providing natural light throughout a structure, but they act as an integral design feature. Cosmetic importance aside, new windows can act as an insulator, noise buffer, and energy-saving feature.

Energy Star Windows

Letโ€™s face it, replacing your existing windows doesnโ€™t sound like a good time. New windows, while better constructed, can come at quite the cost. But your old windows may be costing you a lot of money in the long run anyhow, so it is worth the investment, and itโ€™s better for the environment. 

The windows of today are well-constructed with energy efficiency in mind. One way of telling that your windows are certified as energy-efficient windows is by purchasing windows that come with the Energy Star logo. Energy Star windows come with a little blue seal of approval. It essentially means that this particular window, or brand of windows, is ranked among the more energy-efficient

And yes, we understand that most homeowners want to keep costs low when they need to replace their windows. But is the least expensive option really the best option? It is true that energy-efficient windows can cost upwards of 15% more, but they do offer savings in the long term and are something that can add serious value to your property. 

5 Benefits of Installing Energy Star Windows 

  1. Superior Insulation – It may come as a surprise, but the windows of today are quite effective at keeping outside temperatures at bay, while the interior of your home stays cozy and comfortable. Energy Star windows eliminate hot and cold spots in rooms. They provide a barrier to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, even without having to run your air conditioning in some instances. This is accomplished when windows are constructed from multiple panes of glass that are slightly separated. The gaps in between each pane offer superior insulative qualities.   
  1. Environmentally Sound – It should come as no surprise that Energy Star windows are energy-efficient, thus making them a great choice for homeowners that are concerned about making a positive environmental impact. Energy-efficient windows significantly lower energy usage by keeping your home temperate year-round. This makes your home more eco-friendly because you arenโ€™t using as much electricity or gas to keep your home temperature controlled. 
  1. Save Money in the Long Term – Obviously, when your home consumes less energy that would normally go to heating and cooling costs, the savings start to add up. This one of the most major incentives for homeowners switching over to Energy Star grade windows. Another big win is the tax credit that most cities and townships offer to homeowners willing to install energy-efficient windows in their homes. When you combine the lower utility costs and hearty tax credit youโ€™re looking at some serious savings. 
  1. Protects the Interior of Your Home – This one of the lesser-known benefits of installing Energy Star windows. The sunโ€™s ultraviolet rays are extremely damaging to fabrics, floor coverings, unprotected wood and other design elements found in your home. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays can discolor rugs, carpets, as well as furniture or drapes. Luckily, energy-efficient windows protect your home from 98% of the UV rays, so youโ€™ll never have to worry about any of your homeโ€™s belongings being damaged.  
  1. Noise Barrier – Soundproofing is another major perk that comes along with installing energy-efficient windows. Because these windows already come with several barriers of glass insulation, loud noises like sirens, traffic, storms, and other distractions are considerably reduced. This becomes especially useful if you are in a densely populated city where modern homes are built right next to one another.
