There’s no reason to throw money out the window and pay more for your energy bills than necessary. If you have to replace your windows anyway, it is a good idea to get an energy efficient option, right? You may have heard that vinyl windows are an energy efficient choice, but what makes that the case? Here are a few reasons why vinyl windows are an energy efficient choice.
Reason#1: No Heat Transference
There are some window materials, like aluminum, that transfer heat through their materials. Vinyl is not such a material. It won’t grab heat from the air outside and hold it in, transferring it to the interior of your house. It is much more neutral and will repel the heat away from your home.
Reason#2: Air Tight
Vinyl windows are welded together so they don’t have joints. Without joints, they have no spaces for drafts to sneak in. When properly installed, they are incapable of allowing air into your home because they are air tight against the house. They allow much less air leakage in any direction than other materials.
Reason#3: Insulated Glass
New vinyl windows feature double or even triple pane glass. The insulated glass allows you to place a layer of air or even argon gas between the panes, which gives you a higher level of insulation. You don’t have to worry about the cold Mississauga winters seeping into your home any longer.
Cost doesn’t affect the energy efficiency of a window, but it does affect your choices when it comes to energy efficiency. You want an energy efficient window in your home, but you cannot always afford the most expensive windows in order to achieve the energy efficient goals. Vinyl windows give you just what you need. They are lower in cost than any other option, but that does not mean they are “cheap.” Vinyl windows are well constructed and they are a very practice choice, both budget-wise and in energy efficient manners.
Reason#5: Good Ratings
Vinyl windows more easily earn good ratings in a number of important areas. They often have lower numbers in the areas where you want to see lower numbers, such as in the U-factor. You want a high quality window that will be energy efficient as well and when it comes to vinyl windows, you get performance in every avenue.
