Happy Earth Day 2021! Today is a great day to think about energy efficiency. If your existing windows and doors are poorly insulated, you’re “wasting” energy by using your HVAC system to heat and cool your home more than you need to.
An easy way to think about energy efficiency is energy waste. Where in your home are you unnecessarily wasting energy? Identifying these areas can help you be more green and also save money.
On average, upgrading to EnergyStar rated windows reduce energy use by 12%. For an average home, that averages out to about $300 per year and 200 lbs of CO2 emissions per year – which is equal to 130 gallons of gasoline.
