For this week’s Green Minute, The Green Register is running a series of brief videos by the Alliance to Save Energy (ASE) tackling unique everyday energy efficient topics. Today’s Green Minute – Energy Efficient Windows.
The folks at the Alliance to Save Energy sum up everything you need to know about energy efficient windows. The windows need to prevent heat loss in the winter and keep heat out in the summer.
The best way to find the most energy efficient windows for your home is to survey the Department of Energy’s Energy Star standards for efficient windows.
According to ASE, Energy Star windows can cut heating and cooling costs by 30% compared to older windows. Nationwide, the savings can amount to $1000 per home.
