Here's a quick question: what comes out of your home's vents when you turn on your climate control system? “That's easy,” you say. “Air.” Well, you're right. Air is like an 18-wheeler; it transports both heat and cooling from one place to another. Usually this is good. Sometimes, however, it's the last thing you want. Like when it's 110 degrees outside and the sun's rays are pouring through your single pane windows into your house, heating up the air inside and making your air conditioner work double-time. Or in winter, when you run the furnace around the clock only to have the warmth leach through those same single pane windows into the great outdoors.
The best way to stop this needless waste is to invest in double pane window replacement. Here's why:
- The layer of air between the panes is essentially “dead.” It has almost no room to move, preventing it from transporting heat or cold into or out of your home. As a result, your climate control system doesn't have to work nearly as hard to keep you comfortable.
- Not only will this save you money on your utility bills, but it will also extend the life of your HVAC system, saving you from a major expense and giving you peace of mind. Plus, double pane window replacement can help you to fetch a higher asking price when the time comes to sell your home.
- Every aspect of your life is better when your house is comfy. You're more relaxed, you enjoy better rest, and you get along better with your loved ones. Those are healthy returns from any investment.
