New Windows and a Clearer Point of View

There are some beautiful homes in the Rocklin area; well-manicured and maintained. The type of home where raising a family is a pleasure. What makes most homes in and around Rocklin so stylish is that they are well-maintained. Homeowners in general understand that investing in their homes sustains the home’s shelf life. Creating a higher quality of life during the years you live in your home but also much later when and if you put the home up for sale.

New windows are only one element of what makes a home unique. When installed correctly, windows also can save you money on your energy bills. That goes hand in hand with your home’s valuation, because buyers tend to jump on homes that have lower electricity bills, particularly in areas with high energy costs, like those in most of the state of California.

About Savings and More
Exactly which energy efficiency features offer the best value is a matter of some controversy among window professionals. However, one thing they generally all agree on is that single-pane windows, which offer no insulation between the glass panes, are leaky and inefficient. If you have these installed on your home without storm windows, you could be losing up to 20 percent of your home’s heating to the outdoors, according to the Department of Energy.

On the other hand, double-pane models, also known as insulated or double-glazed windows, have two layers of glass in each window, which helps to slow drafts and reduce energy leaks. Many of these are filled with an insulating gas, like argon or krypton, which absorbs winds before they can penetrate the interior of your home.

These windows are almost always more expensive than single-pane windows, sometimes costing 30 to 50 percent more. While double-hung windows will save you money on your heating costs—particularly if you have old, leaking single-pane windows—most experts agree that those savings are not enough to completely recoup the costs of new windows plus the cost of installation, particularly if you will be replacing multiple windows in your home.
