Living in New England, we experience sweltering heat during the summer and extreme cold during the winter. Many homeowners find themselves struggling to stay comfortable without noticing how much of their hard earned money is going right out the window. It may come as a surprise to some that as much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling the house. A large majority of the warm and cool air we use to keep our homes comfortable finds its way out through cracks and drafts.
Thankfully, there is good news. New modern windows can help keep your home draft free and save you money on your heating and cooling bill alike. For a typical home in New England, upgrading from a single paned window and choosing one that is Energy Star qualified can save you as much as $39 a month and $465 annually.
