Investing in replacement windows doesn’t just help boost your home’s curb appeal. This major home improvement project can also help your home become more eco-friendly. Creative Construction Group, your local provider of window and roof installation services, provides an overview below.
Considering Green Window Replacement
Choosing energy-efficient windows is the key to improving your home’s appearance, resale value and overall comfort. More importantly, these window units can drastically enhance your home’s energy efficiency, no matter the season.
By replacing your old, inefficient windows with green replacement units, you increase your home’s energy efficiency by up to 30 percent. However, the benefits become even greater if you also consider remodeling your home to make it more eco-friendly. A licensed roofing contractor would recommend “cool roofs,” which are known to reflect light and heat away, keeping your home comfortable.
The Popularity of Green Windows
Today’s energy-efficient windows come with features that can make your home more environment-friendly. Here’s a look at some of them:
- Low-E Glass – Energy-efficient windows are equipped with special glass coatings that prevent heat loss in winter and reduce heat from entering your interior during summer.
- Multiple Panes – Windows with at least two glass panes can help lower heating costs by up to 15%. Additional panes can help increase the home’s energy efficiency.
- Low Conductivity Frames – Certain window frame materials are better at providing insulation. These include wood, vinyl and fiberglass.
At Creative Construction Group, we offer replacement windows that add maintenance-free beauty and style to any home. Ours is made of vinyl, which means they help boost energy performance year-round while reducing the maintenance demands associated with older windows. They can be custom-made to fit your existing openings and come in a variety of styles, colors, and features.
