Beyond Energy Savings: 3 Reasons to Get Energy-Efficient Windows

You’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it again–if you’re looking for new windows and patio doors, make sure your choice is energy-efficient. With energy costs on the rise and more and more people looking for green home solutions, it’s easy enough to understand why energy-efficient products are highly recommended. But what else do they have to offer?

Energy-efficient windows can also:

  1. Improve Home Comfort

Energy-efficient replacement units offer great thermal performance, meaning they insulate well, effectively keeping indoor heat in and outdoor heat out. This makes it easier for your HVAC system to achieve your desired indoor temperatures and ensure you stay comfortable.

  1. Boost Natural Light in the Home

To filter out heat from the sun, an energy-efficient replacement window or storm door will feature low-emissivity glass coated with metallic oxide. The coating is microscopically thin so it’s invisible, meaning it won’t get impede natural light unlike tinted glass. And because low-E glass is designed to keep solar heat at bay, you won’t need to use window treatments to prevent passive heating. The result? All the natural light your window can let in.

  1. Ease Noise Transmission

Where air can’t freely flow through, sound is unable to easily pass as well. This is why energy-efficient windows, with their airtight seals and excellent insulative abilities, are great for homes along busy streets, easing noise transmissions to give you peace and quiet at all hours of the day.

"I would recommend RBA of Central Illinois for QUALITY windows and doors. Compared to our old cheap, thin vinyl windows, Andersen blows them away. You can easily tell by how well the sliding doors fit and close, and how heavy duty they are. We also cannot hear the wind rushing through the house in inclement weather anymore! And the black window frames we went with are amazing to look at. Aaron, Al, Darrell, and Cory all were professional and went all out to finish the job, given the weather they had to deal with. I would definitely recommend. They were also on top of communicating with me given the weather delays, and what I could expect for them coming out. Five stars!"
