While the warm weather year-round is definitely a huge perk when it comes to living in Florida, it’s not that great when it comes to your energy bills. The warmer the weather, the more you spend. What Florida resident hasn’t looked at that dreaded bill each month and wished that there was something they could do to lower it? Well, with new energy-efficient replacement windows, you can start saving money month after month in the long run. But how much money will you actually save with new energy-efficient windows?
According to the U.S. Department of Energy…
The U.S. Department of Energy cites that your windows directly attribute to about 25% of your annual energy bills, due to the energy loss that occurs from inefficient windows. They also estimate that on average, people in the U.S. can save anywhere from $126 to $465 each year when they replace their inefficient single-pane windows with new energy-efficient windows. While double-pane windows are slightly more energy-efficient than single-pane windows, you can still see noticeable cost savings when you replace them with new replacement energy-efficient windows. In fact, you could be saving a minimum of $27 to $111 each year.
But that’s just the average across the entire U.S. Residents in warmer states, such as Florida residents, experience even more cost savings each year. In fact, the Department of Energy estimates that you can save $100 more on average each year than residents of colder states.
Depending on the number of windows you have in your home, your new replacement windows will virtually pay for themselves in just 2 to 3 years strictly from the cost savings from your decreased energy bills each month! And with our comprehensive lifetime transferable warranties, you could be reaping these cost savings benefits for a lifetime to come.
Features of Energy Efficient Windows
There are several features of energy-efficient windows that contribute to making them so energy efficient. For one, there’s the Low-emissivity glass that we use. Low-e glass helps to reflect heat and damaging UV rays, reducing heat transfer into your home and thereby keeping your home cool. The frame also plays a large part in the energy efficiency of a window. Some frames on the market, such as aluminum frames, conduct a lot of heat and therefore heat up the room and ultimately your house. Vinyl windows, on the other hand, are not good conductors of heat, so you will not have a lot of heat being transferred into your home. In addition, we use multiple panes of glass in our windows with argon gas fill between the panes of gas to further insulate your window.
