Celebrate Earth Day with Energy Efficient Windows

Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970. As time goes by, it’s so important for everyone to do their part to take care of the environment. It’s never too late to help reduce pollution by saving energy, while at the same time saving money on household bills. With our population growing, even the smallest changes can help improve the environment. It is up to each of us to keep the earth preserved for future generations to enjoy.

Change Air Filters & Replace Lightbulbs

There are many ways to make simple changes around your own home. During your spring cleaning, always change the filters in your air conditioning unit. This will help cut down on your utility bill too. Consider replacing old lightbulbs with energy efficient fluorescents or light emitting diode bulbs. Traditional bulbs will not only cost more money, but they can also generate a lot of heat, which you don’t want during the summer months.

 

Unplug Devices

Always try to keep devices unplugged in your home when you’re not using them. If you are worried about forgetting to do so, you can put electronics such as your TV or DVR on power strips. This way they can be on timers to shut off during times you’re not home. Other tips include washing clothes in cold water & using low-flow faucets and shower heads. These simple changes can save about $63 a year on your electric bill.

Upgrade your Windows

All the above are great starts to saving energy around your home. But why not demonstrate your support for the environment daily, with new eco-friendly windows? Leaky, aging windows are not doing your utility bills any favors! In fact, according to the Department of Energy, you can save up to $465 a year just by getting replacement windows with Energy Star ratings.

Energy efficient windows, also known as energy saving windows, are designed to prevent hot or cold air from escaping your home. Their increased insulation reduces energy usage & your bills, while keeping you comfortable at the same time. Energy-Efficient windows excel at reflecting solar heat and this means that your air conditioning unit won’t have to work as hard to cool your home. Energy-Efficient windows help keep the heat out of your home & have extensive weather-stripping to prevent air infiltration.

At Fairbanks Construction, there are many different types of windows to choose from, that will benefit the environment along with your wallet. You can celebrate Earth Day, every day! Visit our website at https://www.fairbanksconstruction.com/windows/double-hung-windows/ to learn more!
