Existing windows must be pre-inspected before installation begins.
ENERGY STAR labeled windows make it possible for consumers to identify efficient windows, doors and skylights. By choosing ENERGY STAR window products, you can cut down your heating and cooling costs and make your home more comfortable at the same time. ENERGY STAR labeled windows are twice as efficient as the average window produced just ten years ago.
In a typical house, over 40% of the annual energy budget is consumed by heating and cooling. Proper selection of windows, doors and skylights can significantly effect how much money we spend or save every year on keeping our homes bright and comfortable.
Be sure and check out the Efficient Windows Collaborative Web Site for unbiased information on the benefits of energy-efficient windows, descriptions of how they work, and recommendations for their selection and use.
Consumers Power offers our customers a rebate of $3 per square foot of window area for replacement windows with a U-value of .30 on electrically heated homes.
