Stop Wasting Money with Outdated Windows

How Are You Saving Money?

With the country’s economic state in turmoil, everyone is looking for ways to cut costs. Whether it means eating out less, finding more cost effective ways of transportation, or even picking up extra shifts at work, people are willing to make various changes to have some extra money. However, most people don’t realize that one of the solutions to these problems lies within their own home. By having ineffective and outdated windows, homeowners across the country are slowly letting their money go to waste without even realizing it.

The Unsuspected Culprit

While windows may appear to be doing their job of blocking airflow, this may not be the reality of the situation. Many times people think it is their own fault that their energy bill is so high, assuming they raised or lowered the temperature too often or too much, when the actual cause is the inability of their windows to function properly.

Taking a look at most of the older and outdated windows, many of them have only a single pane, allowing for air to easily seep in an out. This leaking of air causes your thermostat to work overtime trying to make up for the constant change, which in turn tacks on unnecessary energy costs. It’s comparable to wearing a fall jacket in the winter. While the fall jacket may appear to be helping, eventually the cold air will get through and your body will work overtime to keep warm. The clear choice would have been to wear a winter coat which could effectively trap in heat. Newer double paned windows are built like a winter coat, and are specifically constructed to trap air between the two panes to create a stronger barrier between the inside and the outside. In addition, newer windows can contain clear energy efficient glazing that goes on the windows and adds an additional block for air. These innovative window developments will effectively lower your energy bill, therefore putting more money into your pocket.

A Future Filled With Cheaper Energy Bills

Depending on the size of the job and the cost of your current energy bill, the profit may not be immediate, but the key is cashing in on the long term investment. If you plan on keeping your home for at least a few more years, then the sooner you can update your windows the sooner you can start accumulating savings.
