Why are Energy Efficient Windows & Doors Important?
Air can escape your home through inefficient windows and doors, costing you money. Not only are windows and doors important for functional reasons, they’re an interesting element in residential design. Energy efficient door and window replacement is increasingly popular as technologies have changed their performance in major ways. Issues such as climate, orientation, shading, and window area all affect energy performance, but aesthetic factors such as access to fresh air, daylight, and natural views impact the comfort of a home.
Benefits of Energy Efficient Windows & Doors

Options for Windows & Window Replacement
Whether you are looking for replacement windows or would like to improve the energy performance of your existing windows, several options are available. An energy audit can help you identify good strategies for more efficient windows and a more efficient house. Whichever energy efficiency measures you consider, the federal government as well as state, local, and utility programs may offer financing help or weatherization assistance.
Depending on the condition of your current windows, there are three options for improving performance:
- Repair – The cost of repair will depend on the condition of the windows.
