Energy Efficient Windows Can Stop High Hydro Bills

Energy Efficient Windows Can Stop High Hydro Bills

Now that you’ve seen this winter’s hydro and gas bills, which have been going up at jaw-dropping rates in Ontario, you might be feeling about ready to go off grid out of frustration.

Before you go investing in a wood stove and solar panels, consider a more reasonable alternative: changing your old, drafty windows for energy efficient alternatives that will help you control the climate in your home while using less energy. Whether your heat comes from gas or hydro, Energy Star windows can go a long way toward reducing your heating (and cooling) expenses.

Insulation is extremely important when it comes to how much energy a building uses; the best way to maintain the proper temperature in a building is to have proper insulation. Active heating and cooling is very energy intensive, which is why you save money when you can prevent heat from escaping the home during the winter, and conversely, from preventing overheating in the summer.Typically, windows account for the weakest link in a home’s insulation, as heat conduction follows Fourier’s Law. It states that heat conduction is proportional to area, thickness, and material. While relative to the entire building windows do not have too much area, they are often very thin and ordinary glass does little to separate inside and outside atmospheres, which means that a very high percentage of the heat lost in a building can simply be through the windows.

However, many homeowners in London, Ontario, are turning to energy efficient window manufacturers like Golden Windows when they do home renovations to stop that. They offer Energy Star products that use Low Emissivity coatings and argon gas to prevent heat conduction and bounce back warming UV rays from the sun. They are an all-year-round energy solution because they prevent heat from passing through them, whether the source is inside or outside.

Besides energy efficient technology, the best window companies in London also offer a variety of styles and material choices, including:

  • awnings,
  • casement,
  • slider,
  • hung,
  • architectural and picture,
  • and bay and bow windows.

Replacement windows in London, Ontario come in an unlimited variety of available color options, too, as well as grille patterns including Colonial, Victorian, Muskoka andCustom. At London-based Golden Windows, customers also have their choice of frame material, including wood, aluminium-clad and vinyl, which make good-looking and practical frames.

High quality and durability also really help save money, as you will save on maintenance and future replacements. Doing a proper job by installing high quality windows and doors can save a lot of money, even if they are more expensive upfront. Every energy bill will be lower and you will be able to wait longer between replacements, which can otherwise be needed every 10 to 15 years. The climate is changing, and summers in Southern Ontario are getting hotter while winter can be wildly unpredictable. In order to keep your heating and cooling costs down, you need to take advantage of the many benefits of high quality windows in London, Ontario and start your home renovations today.
