Replacement Windows and Energy Savings in Boston, MA

Windows are one of the most crucial elements of our homes, and rightfully so – they offer a variety of benefits for us – natural light, ventilation, protection from the weather, and the list goes on and on. On the flip side, if they are old windows they can also be one of the reasons for wasted energy costs. Why let those old windows make you pay more for heating and cooling when replacement windows can provide you with improved comfort and a spectacular new view?

There are steps we can take as homeowners to reduce the impact that windows have on our energy bills. And luckily, developments in window technology have left us higher efficiency windows that help everyone out as well.

When the weather in Boston finds its hottest and coldest points in the summer and winter, your heating and cooling systems are working hard to keep your home comfortable. If you still have old windows, it may be time to think about replacement windows that can help ensure your comfort and decrease your monthly energy bills.

So what can you do?

  • Look for replacement windows that are ENERGY STAR®-certified

  • Take advantage of curtains and shades to help keep the heat out in the summer and keep the warmth in during winter

  • If you have single-pane windows, buy replacement windows that are double-pane or triple-pane to help shield the elements

  • Do your research on Low Emissivity (Low E) coatings, as they help reflect outside heat in the summer and keep heat in during the winter
