Windows are another place where energy efficiency can be looked at to save money on your energy bills. If windows are old and drafty, properly selected, installed, energy efficient windows are the way to go and can minimize heating, cooling and lighting costs.
To ensure the best results, energy efficient windows must be properly installed to ensure energy efficiency. Window installation varies depending on the window type, the construction of the house (wood, masonry, etc.) and the exterior finish (wood siding, stucco, brick, etc.). Windows should be installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations and be properly air sealed during installation to perform correctly.
Caulking and weatherstripping during window installations are important to maintain the integrity of the air tightness in the home and ensure maximum efficiency. Different window types are awning, hopper, sliding, fixed, double hung, picture and casement; depending on the look and placement, you can select the best type of window for your home.
