Energy Efficient Window Retrofits and Your Seattle Home Remodel Empty Energy Efficient Window Retrofits and Your Seattle Home Remodel

Energy-efficient windows are an investment that will pay off in the long run. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average American household can save between $126 and $465 a year by replacing old windows with new ones. Not only do they reduce noise, they also increase the value of your home, which many homebuyers are willing to pay for. Here we discuss the benefits of upgrading to Energy-efficient window, and what to consider when choosing them.

While traditional windows have single panes, newer models may have double panes and are therefore more energy-efficient. Double-paned windows may contain air between their layers, which helps insulate them. However, for even better insulation, some manufacturers use dense gases. Argon and krypton gases are both odorless, colorless, and nontoxic, and will not harm your home if they leak. The most important benefit of installing new windows is to reduce moisture in your home.

When choosing Energy-efficient windows in Seattle, pay close attention to the materials of the frame. While most consumers focus on glass, the frame material is an equally important consideration. While wood and vinyl are both highly insulating, metal and aluminum are poorly insulated and should be avoided unless you live in an area that experiences extreme temperatures year-round. While composite wood is more durable than normal wood, fiberglass is the best choice for homes with a humid climate.
