Installing Energy-Efficient Windows

Windows are one of my favorite parts of the house. This is because they provide enough source of light when reading and doing other activities inside the house. Also, they provide a direct view of wonderful scenery and enough source of ventilation for every room inside the house.

Do you want to install new windows? Understand that making them energy-efficient during cold and warm weathers could be challenging. Here are some points which must not be forgotten for that matter.

  • During cold weather, a plastic film that is clear and heavy-duty is needed to reduce presence of drafts. Consider shades that insulate well as protection from the cold weather. At night, the curtains and shades must be left closed. In the morning, they must be open to let the warm sunlight in.
  • During the warm weather, your choice of curtains and shades must be leaning to the white color. This is because light color does not absorb light and it reflects excessive away from the house. On the glass, place sun-control films to reduce the level of heat getting in the house.
