Energy Star Windows
One of the biggest changes you can make for energy efficiency is with your windows. Energy star windows conserve energy, save money, and are great for the environment!Energy efficient windows will keep your home well insulated, your bills lower, and the less energy you are using the better it is for the environment as a whole.
When installing energy efficient windows, you will want to make sure you hire a professional contractor who is experienced at edge glazing. Edge glazing provides a moisture barrier and seals in energy while preventing condensation. Edge glazing should maintain durability and never leak.

The glass of the window should be able to pass a U-Factor rating system, which detects how much heated or cooled air leaks through a window pane. The lower the number, the better the window!
On average, homeowners save up to $465 a year on heating and cooling expenses when they switch to energy efficient windows. You may also be able to receive up to 10% in tax credits when you switch to energy efficient windows, because when you conserve energy, you are doing your part in saving the environment one little step at a time.
