As the seasons change, it’s important to keep the temperature in your home steady. One of the most efficient ways to manage your climate is through the use of energy efficient glass. This puts you in control of the temperature of your home, simply by controlling the elements that come in and out.
When it comes to heat loss, did you know that your flooring only accounts for 18%, the roof 20% and the walls 14%? As for letting heat in, the roof is only guilty of 5%, while the walls allow for 8% of heat absorption. So, where is the remainder of the heat getting in and out? The windows! Studies show that the windows are accountable for a shocking 48% of heat loss and 87% of heat absorption.
In other words, you’re (literally) throwing money out the window if you haven’t had your windows checked for energy efficiency. Working with a professional can indicate the areas where heat is sneaking in and out. Every home is different and optimal protection depends on a variety of factors, so be certain to consult with an Energy Efficiency expert to determine what you can do to better conserve energy in your home.
