As winter approaches in Baltimore, it’s important to think of the places that the cold and damp can get in, and the heat can get out. And this is not only true for you and your family’s well-being and comfort, but also for your pocketbook. The answer is more simple than it might seem at first: energy-efficient windows. At EC Roofing & Home Services in Howard County, we understand the importance of efficient heating and cooling, and we can help. But by turning your current windows into energy-efficient windows, or by installing new energy-efficient windows, we can have your heating bills — and your cooling bills in the summer — back under control in no time.
The U.S. Department of Energy has pointed out that somewhere between 25% and 30% of the heat produced in your home this winter will be lost through your windows. This is, in the most literal sense of the term, a waste of energy. And it’s also a massive drain on your finances.
Upgrading to Energy Efficient Windows
Many of the homes in Charm City need upgrades when it comes to energy-efficient windows. If your windows are in good shape, or if you have replaced them in the last few years, they might only require an upgrade. Whatever the case, an EC Roofing & Home Services representative can come to your home at no cost to you and assess the extent to which your windows are allowing heat to escape. An upgrade of this kind may involve caulking and weatherstripping to make sure that there are no leaks. In more radical cases, it might involve installing storm windows. Maybe adding window treatments or solar films, or overhangs or awnings would work.
Replacing Your Current Windows
For some who need to update their energy-efficient windows in Baltimore, a complete replacement will be necessary. This might involve replacing the frames, glazing, or replacing the whole window installation outright.
But the upside is that the price of the upgrade or installation will be offset by the money you will save on heating and cooling. Replacing your current windows with energy-efficient windows will also give you peace of mind, knowing that you are taking care of yourself and your family by keeping Old Man Winter at bay. And no one in the Baltimore area knows energy-efficient windows better than EC Roofing & Home Services — we’ve been at it since 1992, and know Baltimore winters better than just about anyone.
