An average home can have anywhere from 10 to 32 windows depending on the number of floors in the home, plus as many as three to eight exterior doors. It’s easy to see how these openings can equate to money wasted on your heating and cooling bill. Energy efficient windows and doors can go a long way toward saving money and keeping your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
A house can lose more than 10% of its heat through the windows and that percentage can go up drastically if there are drafts or insufficient insulation in areas of your home. Cold air should stay inside the home during the summer and remain outside the home during the winter!
Thankfully, our Northeast Building Supply location in Bridgeport, CT, can provide energy efficient windows and doors for homeowners and construction professionals to solve this problem while keeping homes safe and secure. Save money on your utility bills by working with the professionals at Northeast Building Supply in Bridgeport!
The Department of Energy estimates that you can save as much as $465 dollars a year by switching to energy efficient windows and doors. As an added benefit, Northeast Building Supply provides ENERGY STAR-certified windows so you can be sure you are receiving the best products and hardware that is available.
We have received top ratings from the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) when they performed a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient test on our products. For even more savings, ENERGY STAR windows qualify for a tax credit so you can earn up to $100 per qualifying window that is installed at your home.
Eversource, a utility company that provides electricity to 1.2 million renters and homeowners in the Northeast, states that you can receive a $50 credit for a double pane window and $100 for triple pane windows. These rebates are available as long as the windows are approved by a technician and you are pre-qualified by the Home Energy Solutions program. Energy efficient windows and doors by Northeast Building Supply can help you save money in more ways than one!
There is a huge variety of windows that would make a beautiful addition in your home. Whether you require single-pane skylight windows or an artfully constructed pine door, we will work with you to figure out the best option for your home. When installing windows, our experts handle all things related to your installation from foam insulations to glass coatings. In terms of frames, there are multiple options to choose from. We can provide vinyl frames, which are the most cost-effective, but the color options for vinyl frames are limited as a result.
Fiberglass is the most thermally superior while also being very low maintenance. Aluminum is perfect for bigger window designs because of its strength. However, aluminum windows lack the insulation that comes with the other choices.
Lastly, composite wood provides a timeless look while maintaining the low maintenance cost and durability of the alternatives but they require a larger investment than the other options. All of these options come with their own pros and cons but our team will work with you to figure the best choice for you.
