When you start noticing an increase in your home’s energy bills, consider a few home improvement projects to lower your energy use. Focus on projects that can reduce your energy costs without compromising the look and feel of your home. If you’re unsure where to start, consult us at Huff ‘N Puff.
As the premier provider of quality exterior doors and replacement windows in Albany, we can help you pave the way to a more comfortable and energy-efficient home. You can start by following these two essential tips:
Invest in Window Replacement
Windows aren’t just lovely design elements that can define the overall look of your home. They also play an active role in maintaining your home’s quality. For this reason, it’s important to replace your existing windows when they’re old and failing. In fact, windows can account for up to 30% of your home’s energy loss. When they’re not performing well, this can lead to increased utility bills.
This is where quality window replacement comes in. Huff ‘N Puff is the exclusive dealer of Renewal by Andersen® windows in the Hudson Valley and Capital Region. Their exclusive Fibrex® composite framing material features the strength and insulating properties of wood with the low maintenance value of vinyl. It keeps an airtight seal that prevents leakage, ensuring that costly heating and cooling energy doesn’t escape your home.
Combine this with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass and you can enjoy a more pleasant indoor environment while saving considerably on energy. With our replacement windows in Albany, NY, trimming energy use is easy and worry-free.
Look for Newer and Better Exterior Doors
Your entry door keeps both natural and security threats at bay, but it also contributes greatly to your home’s energy efficiency. If they have sustained enough damage, however, the lasting solution is replacement.
Huff ‘N Puff carries only the highest quality entry doors from ProVia®. They come in fiberglass and steel — durable materials that won’t crack, pit, or corrode when exposed to harsh elements. ProVia doors have exceeded the energy performance ratings set by ENERGY STAR with their polyurethane core for superior insulation and increased energy savings.
