There is a reason why the Greater Phoenix area is referred to as the Valley of the Sun. If you’ve lived here for long enough you not only know the damage that the hot Arizonan sun can have on the exterior of your home, but also to your wallet when it is time to pay the energy bill!
The good news is that you can battle back against the heat by replacing your windows and installing brand-new energy efficient windows. By installing energy-efficient windows you will add a fresh look to your home and keep more money in your pocket in the long run!
Here are some tips on how to choose your energy-efficient windows and some of the benefits that you will receive:
Savings on Your Energy Bill
Low E -coating and a low U factor fiberglass window in Arizona could have you saving up to 25% on your cooling costs a year. A window that has been poorly insulated or that is simply made of older materials will make your AC run overtime. Specifically, using a low E coating on new windows will reduce solar heating gain while keeping the style of your home intact.
Less Wear and Tear on Your Cooling System
The performance of new energy efficient windows will reduce the overall workload on your cooling and heating systems. This will not only help to reduce your overall costs, but also increase the longevity of your cooling and heating systems, avoiding sudden AC problems during the summer!
Older windows can often be drafty, which means that depending on the time of the day they can be uncomfortable to sit by. Energy efficient windows will reduce the overall heat that comes through a window allowing you to stay comfortable as you sit enjoying the beautiful scenery outside.
Installing new energy efficient windows will have a tremendous impact on the exterior look of your house, but also on the interior, making your home brighter but not hotter. Choosing the right selective glazing or high-performance tints will help you controlling the light throughout your home while preventing glare.
Protection from Fading
Low E coatings on new windows will reduce damage and fading on your flooring, furniture and other prized possessions. This is an often-overlooked benefit of installing new windows. Having proper protection using a tinted coating will help to make sure that you can protect your valuables inside while increasing your home value.
