If you’re like most homeowners in Mesa, Arizona, you’re probably trying to save a dollar or two on your utility bills—regardless of the time of year. While there are several ways to save energy such as using less electricity or installing a programmable thermostat, sometimes you need to think bigger for energy savings. Energy efficient windows are one of the best ways to help lower your utility bills up to $465 per year. However, not all windows are created equal in the world of energy savings.
As you’re considering your options for new windows, here are some key points to keep in mind to save energy:
Opt for Gas Between the Panes
When you’re considering new windows that are low in price, they typically do not contain any energy saving features—including argon or krypton gas. A standard window at the lowest price tag only has air between the panes, which won’t amount to much when it comes to energy savings.
Argon and krypton gas are two of the most popular options in the replacement window industry. Both gases are denser than air, and their purpose is to maximize the overall efficiency of your window. Krypton gas is the denser option of the two, and it’s typically inserted within the tight chambers of triple pane windows.
Speaking of triple pane, this is another option to consider with your new energy efficient windows. Triple pane windows offer two chambers of glass for krypton gas instead of one. This makes your new windows more efficient than ever, and it can truly help to maximize your savings.
