Did you know that you could start saving money by upgrading your home? By replacing your old drafty windows and choosing the right siding, you can lower your energy consumption and monthly electric bills.
Windows aren’t just providers of natural light and outdoor views. These can be energy-efficient depending on their technology. At Peak Roofing Contractors, we offer the following glass options that let you save up to 30% on heating and cooling costs:
- Low-E glass – Due to the microscopically thin metal layer applied to the glass, it reflects heat inward or outward. This results in heat gain during cold days, heat loss during warmer days, and even a combination of both. Low-E coatings also reduce fading of your carpet and furnishing caused by ultraviolet rays.
- Double insulated glass – This is made by sandwiching two panes, which are separated by a spacer bar and sealed on four sides. The air space created in between the panes is filled with gas to increase energy efficiency. To ensure more savings on energy costs, we also provide triple insulated glass.
- Gas fills – Argon or krypton gas can slow the transfer of heat once it is injected between window panes. These are nontoxic, colorless, and odorless insulators.
- Warm edge spacers – These spacers can reduce heat loss. These are more aesthetically appealing compared with their aluminum counterparts.
Installation is also a factor in an energy-efficient window. Even if you have low-E glass or double-pane windows, make sure that these are installed properly to reduce any air leaks.
Aside from replacing your drafty windows, siding contractors in Manassas, VA, can install insulated vinyl in your home. This type of siding reduces thermal bridging, which happens when energy is lost through wall studs. It serves as a blanket over your walls to create continuous insulation.
These home improvement projects offer great returns in the future. Insulated vinyl siding and energy-efficient windows from Peak Roofing Contractors control the indoor temperature, allowing you to use your air-conditioning and heating systems less often.
Aside from windows and siding, we also specialize in roofing and gutters in Manassas, VA, and the surrounding areas. We offer quality products from trusted manufacturers, as we value customer satisfaction.
