Keep Heat Inside with Protective Windows

By
Mortgage and Lending with Quicken Loans

Recently, my colleague and friend at Quicken Loans, Jeff Perry, explained the importance of proper insulation and more when it comes to saving money to heat your home.  Below, I’m taking the savings recommendations further by reviewing how proper windows can help you save some green while being more environmentally friendly.
 
While windows come in all shapes and sizes and can beautify your home, the effect they can have on your heating bills can be less than attractive.  In fact, windows can account for 10 to 25 percent of your heating bill, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
 
Many American homes have single-pane windows, but double-pane windows with high-performing glass, can help keep cold air out.  Look for windows with what are called “low-e” coatings on the glass.  This type of glass reflects heat back into your home.  “Low-e” is short for low-emissivity, and refers to the extremely thin coatings that help keep heat inside the house in winter and outside in the summer.
 
If replacing your windows is not an option, a couple of cost-effective tips include, installing insulated window shades or taping clear plastic film to the inside of your window frames to guard against drafts.
 
With the recent snow storms and frigid temperatures gripping states across the country, it’s important to consider ways that you can keep heat in your home and extra cash in your bank account.

Ditto especially if there is a picture of a snow packed home.  Burrrrrr.  We are spoiled in Calif.

With energy audit or disclosure regulations this issue of efficiency is going to become more front and center for buyers consideration.
