If you’re in the market for replacement windows, then one of the benefits that you’re surely looking forward to is improved energy efficiency for your home. Energy-efficient windows are built with insulating features that can help minimize heat transfer and, in turn, help your HVAC unit run more efficiently, potentially lowering your monthly energy bills. But, how do you know which replacement windows will provide the best energy efficiency benefits?
Look for the ENERGY STAR® Label
The first thing to look for is the ENERGY STAR label. This label indicates that the windows meet strict insulating standards and will help improve the energy efficiency of your home. ENERGY STAR-certified windows will typically include Low-E glass and insulated frames to stop heat from seeping into your home during the summer and out of your home during the winter.
Casement windows open outward like a door and are one of the most popular options for homeowners. And, due to their design, they are one of the most energy-efficient types of windows. A casement window’s sash presses tightly against the frame to help eliminate air seepage, and winds that blow against the window only serve to make this seal stronger.
