Installing replacement basement windows can help you save up to 40% on your heating bills. The amount of efficiency you’ll add depends on a number of factors. Examine your current window and consider the following factors.
Ensure that you have adequate weather stripping and that the windows possess up-down, in-out play when they are latched. Another factor to consider is whether there are enough glass layers. If there are not, you will feel cold air when the wind blows and the glass panes will feel cold to the touch. When shopping for new windows, look for double-pane or energy-efficient-triple-pane windows that are filled with argon or krypton gas. Those aspects of the new windows will increase your energy savings.
