Based solely on the advancements in technology and window manufacturing, it’s no surprise that replacing your old, outdated windows can help make your home more energy efficient resulting in significant energy savings throughout the year. But, did you know vinyl replacement windows are considered one of the BEST return on investment (ROI) when it comes to energy upgrades for your home?
If you’re considering installing vinyl replacement windows in your home, it’s important to gather information and learn what options will help you get the best ROI. One of the most important factors is purchasing replacement windows with a very low U factor (high R value). An average double pane window has a U factor of 0.34 (R = 3) while a triple pane window typically has a U factor of 0.25 to 0.20 (R = 5).
Your best bet is to consider triple pane glass with Low-E coatings and Argon or Krypton gas filling between the panes. Although there is a difference in cost between double pane and triple pane windows, that difference will quickly be offset by the energy savings. However, BOTH double pane and triple pane windows will significantly improve your energy efficiency and save you money!
Lastly, keep in mind that the highest quality window won’t do much good if it isn’t installed properly. At New York Sash, all of our windows and products are installed by our own factory-trained professional craftsmen, who are 5-star certified, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) Trained and Lead Safety Certified by the Environmental Protection Agency.
