The hot summer in Riverside and San Diego counties have arrived. With temperatures in the 80s, 90s, and 100’s, what can homeowners do to cool down inside their houses? Home windows play a key role in your home’s temperature and energy consumption. Did you know that drafty windows and old windows that need replacement can account for 10% to 25% of your inside temperature, by letting the outside heat in to your house?
During the summer, your air conditioner must work harder to cool hot air from sunny and drafty windows.
Here are two quick solutions to cool your home off this summer:
- Install ENERGY STAR®-qualified windows. If your home has single-pane windows, consider replacing them with double-pane windows made with high-performance glass. Choose windows with specially selected coatings to reduce interior heat gain.
- Use curtains and window shades to keep the summer sun’s heat from overtaking your inside residence. Proper shading, curtains, window shutters and blinds can give your air conditioner and energy bill a break.
Replacement Home Windows: If you save now, you may pay later…
Are you looking for a great deal or a huge discount on home windows? Homeowners need to realize that cheaper windows are less money for a reason-either the window frame or window glass panes-or both-are made cheaply, and can cost you in the long run. Windows with cheaper glass panes can let the hot air in during the summer. If you save on the cost of replacement windows, only to pay more in cooling and heating costs, where did your savings go?
Homeowners who are serious about cutting their energy usage will insist that the windows be Energy Star windows. Energy Star Windows are made in accordance with conservation practices and conform to the minimum construction standards. You can find excellent Energy Star Rated windows in vinyl, aluminum and wood framed windows.
