Storm Doors & Energy-efficient Windows: How You Can Save a Bundle Every Year
Most people want to find opportunities to save money on energy expenses – heating and cooling a home can be costly, especially In Homewood and Matteson, Illinois, where temperatures can be excruciating. Happily for home and business owners, there’s any easy way to improve energy efficiency and save money on utility costs every year: the installation of storm doors and energy-efficient windows.
Understanding How Storm Doors Save Energy
Adding a storm door to your home is an easy way to cut down on heating and cooling costs every year. This is especially true if your home’s door(s) are old and haven’t been recently insulated. Installed on the outside of your standard entryway door, a storm door saves energy in two primary ways: first, it creates a pocket of insulated air, which reduces heat conduction; second, it reduces the chance of any outdoor air leaks, working as an insulator. In warmer months, you can even have a screen installed on a storm door, allowing for constant airflow. This can help to alleviate the need for constant air conditioning.
The Benefits of Energy-efficient Windows
Much like a storm door, installing energy-efficient windows is also a great way to live a ‘greener’ life and help to keep your wallet padded. Windows, when designed to be energy-efficient, can:
- Reduce heating and cooling costs;
- Lessen lighting costs; and
- Pay for themselves in the long run.
At Preferred Window & Door, our energy-efficient windows can be manufactured in wood grain or vinyl, and utilize the latest installation techniques to maximize cost-saving benefits.
If you have newer windows on your home and aren’t ready to replace them with energy-efficient windows, you can reduce heating and cooling costs, and save energy, by adding storm windows, caulking, and weather stripping.
