Replacement windows and savings in Rochester, Minnesota

As a homeowner, when you think about replacement windows, it’s not unusual to consider their energy efficiency. Of course that is typically centered on the energy efficiency of the replacement windows themselves. However, with the developments in technology over the years, your replacement windows can provide much more than their own energy efficiency and could impact your monthly energy costs.

You might ask – “So how is this?”

If you break it down, when you invest in superior windows like those from Pella®, the glass and frame can work to keep heat out during the warmer months and cold out during the cooler months. By doing so, the workload on your heating and cooling equipment can go down as well, saving you money over time.

When you think it through, older windows that aren’t as energy efficient can make a huge impact on the quantity of heat and/or air leaving your home due to leaky windows. And that is air that you’ve already paid to heat up or cool down. That, along with the development of various glass coatings, like low-E (low-emissivity) coatings, might help reduce the amount of unwanted heat that makes its way in to your home.

Depending on how long it has been since your home last had replacement windows installed, you might potentially be losing a lot of indoor air via leaky and inefficient windows and around the installed window. If you’d like to learn more about all the replacement windows you have to pick from Pella Windows and Doors, feel free to stop by the Rochester showroom, give us a call at 507-847-1060 or set up an appointment with us online through our online scheduler.
