Today, more than ever before, energy efficiency is on top of a lot of people’s lists, covering everything from vehicles to homes, and most importantly, their windows and doors. Windows, doors, and their cousin, skylights can significant sources of energy loss in your home. According to the Government of Canada, up to 35% of energy loss in your home is through windows, doors, and skylights.
At Global Windows & Doors, we build our products in line with ENERGY STAR standards. We do this because we know the impact that well designed and installed windows and doors can have on your home heating bill. In fact, replacing all of your windows with ENERGY STAR certified models from Global Windows & Doors can save you an average of 8% on your energy bill.
Keep in mind, too, that installation is also a huge factor in efficiency. A poorly installed window, door, or skylight, can cause drafts, can allow water to seep in, and can cause condensation in your home, all things that factor into energy loss. When you buy Global Windows & Doors products, you do so from licensed contractors who can install your windows and doors properly.
With ENERGY STAR products in your home, you can make your home energy efficient and do your part for the environment!
