The environment is a hot topic right now, literally and metaphorically. The human race is becoming increasingly aware that we need to make significant changes to our lifestyles to preserve the planet for future generations.
Many homeowners are now aware that they need to adjust their property to make it more energy-efficient, but you might not be aware of how easy it is to make your space less wasteful.
One of the easiest ways you can reduce your energy waste is to install new windows. The team at Muhler understands how our products, combined with expert installation, can make your home less wasteful and environmentally friendly.
Reducing your energy waste can also save you money because you’re still paying for the energy your home wastes.
As such, there’s no reason not to consider installing new windows on your property. If you want to find out more about how new windows can reduce your energy waste, then read on.
New Window Technology Stops Energy From Escaping
Outdated windows aren’t as good at holding in heat as their newer counterparts, because previously this wasn’t as much of a concern. Today’s window technology can hold in energy and keep your home snug and comfortable all year round. Our team only uses the latest cutting-edge window and door technology, so you can rest assured that your windows will retain as much energy as possible. For example, our Sierra Pacific Windows use innovative No-Metal TrueWarm® Edge polymer structural foam spacers, which will lock in heat and ensure that there is never a draft around your new windows or doors.
Many Window Brands Offer Products That Will Last Longer Than Their Outdated Counterparts
If you bought your home with the windows already installed, or you had them fitted many years ago, then you might not know what brand they were made by and how long they will last. Regular window replacement wastes a lot of energy because it takes a lot of material and fuel to create, transport, and install your new windows and dispose of the old ones. If you choose a high-quality brand, like Bildau and Bussmann or LePage Millwork, then you will have to replace your windows less frequently and won’t waste as much energy over the years.
Expert Fitters Can Customize Your New Windows To Your Property
In the past, window installation techniques weren’t always sophisticated enough to allow for windows that fitted perfectly into unusually shaped properties. As a result, some homes might not have adequately fitted windows, and the gaps will allow energy to escape. At Muhler, our team understands exactly how to fit your windows flush to your home, and we can even create custom windows if required. The result is an energy-efficient home that will save you money and allow you to reduce your impact on the environment.
Older Windows Aren’t Always Storm Proof
In South Carolina storms are a common occurrence, and when they do happen, they can cause significant damage to your property. If your windows don’t have adequate storm protection, then they might break and leak energy. It can take a lot of time to replace your windows after a storm, which means that your home could waste energy for many weeks afterward. These new windows take energy to create and install, so having protected windows made from a robust material like vinyl is vital for any environmentally-conscious homeowner.
Shutters Will Help Hold In Heat
As part of our storm protection offering, Muhler offers a wide variety of window shutters. These products not only protect your home from storm damage but also help to keep the heat in your home. They act as an extra level of protection and a further barrier to stop the heat, and light, from escaping your home. When you work with us, our team can advise you on the best shutters to keep your home insulated and safe from whatever the South Carolina weather throws at it.
Larger Windows Bring In More Light
Reducing your home’s energy wastage isn’t the only way you can reduce your home’s impact on the environment. Another approach is to install solutions that will allow you to use less energy in the first place. A great way to reduce your electricity usage is to install expansive windows, or even a sunroom, to allow natural light to flood into your home. We are the Charleston and Mt Pleasant region’s experts on sunrooms and new windows, so we can help you to enhance your home and create a bright space that saves you money and energy.
