HomeBlogHow Good Windows Can Make Your Home Greener
Having a green home reduces environmental impact, and increases personal comfort and happiness. By simply making sure that you have the best, energy efficient windows installed throughout your home, you too can experience these benefits. Keep reading to find out why going green is the right choice for you:
Reduce Your Need for Heating
According to Natural Resources Canada, if you replaced all the original windows and doors in an average older home with ENERGY STAR® windows, your household energy consumption would drop by about 7 percent. Similarly, if you installed ENERGY STAR® windows in an average new home instead of conventional products, your energy consumption would drop by about 12 percent. You could be saving three-quarters of a tonne of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions annually. Furthermore, energy efficient windows reduce heating and cooling costs by 12-33% annually.
Increase Natural Lighting
Large, clear windows let in plenty of light, allowing you to keep your indoor lighting off for longer. This will not only significantly lower your electricity bill and cut your carbon footprint, but will allow you to maximize your exposure to natural light. Increasing your home’s exposure to the natural lighting creates a healthier, happier, more comfortable and more sustainable home. Sunlight is also known as a natural disinfectant and can reduce the production of harmful bacteria and organisms that can grow in any house.
Keeping Plants in Your Home
Having quality windows installed throughout your home can enable you to keep and care for many varieties of plants. The natural light and temperature controlled air ensured by energy efficient windows can help plants to thrive in your home. Having healthy plants can release water and purify the air within your home, helping you breathe easier.
