How to improve your windows energy efficiency

double glazing windowsYou want to have a comfortable temperature in your home, especially during winter?

You can! There are a lot of ways on how to do just that. However, are these methods, cost effective? Remember, it’s nice to feel warm during a chilly winter morning, but your energy bills might make you shiver to your bones.

Don’t like an expensive energy bills? It’s high time you consider improving your windows energy efficiency.

How to improve your windows energy efficiency

Your windows let in useful light and warmth during winter, but in warm weather (summer), the amount of heat can be too much. When in winter, a poorly insulated window can allow up to 40% of your warm air to leak out. This means one thing – you’ll be using more energy to keep your home warm during winter and cooler during the summer resulting in higher energy bills.

You can prevent it from happening. How? By improving your windows energy efficiency and here are some ways to achieve this:

  • Install double glazing or window film
  • Use energy efficient window frames
  • Cover up your windows by installing curtains

Install double glazing or window film

This will help check the heat in or out of your home, depending on the season and will also help in reducing the noise from outside too. Double glazing is very helpful, even in homes that are air conditioned. Your double-glazing will work properly depending on three things:

  • How it is installed
  • What type of window frames you are using
  • And the type climate you have

For this, consider choosing aluminium frames. They are a good choice because they are energy efficient. When opened, these frames can encourage natural ventilation to enter your home and when closed; they are airtight preventing drafts. Preventing drafts will stop the outside elements entering your home through your window or letting all your hot air escape in winter.

Cover up your windows by installing curtains

Trap it in or lock it out!

You can prevent heat loss/gain if you install blinds or curtains to all your windows.

Stand outside your windows on a cold night and feel all the warm air rushing to meet you. Draw your new curtains and you will feel the difference. The difference in keeping that warm air in your home will save you so much money because you are not continually heating air just to have it disappear outside.

Choose curtains with heavy fabric, the heavier the fabric, the better. Heavy fabric gives you the best thermal protection. In summer if you draw your curtains early in the day you will prevent the sun entering your home and it’s easier to maintain your home’s temperature rather than having to cool it down all the time.

Blinds are a great choice to and can work really well for thermal control as well, especially in your bathroom or kitchen areas.

Follow these and you will have a comfortable home all year round with lower energy bills!
