How Efficient Are Your Energy-Efficient Windows?

The warm weather is here! As much as we love the idea of hot sunny weather, some of us dread the cost of energy bills to keep our homes cool all summer. It brings to mind the question of whether or not your home is as energy-efficient as possible, or is the money you pay for energy bills just seeping out the cracks of old windows and doors in your home?

When it comes to energy-efficient windows, they consist of a vinyl window frame and are usually made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with ultraviolet light (UV) stabilizers to keep sunlight from breaking down the material. Essentially, you can enjoy the natural sunlight coming through your home without it completely heating the area it reaches. A vinyl window frame is a strong, durable, yet low-maintenance option. It effectively reduces heat transfer and helps insulate your home better. Another way to amp up the efficiency of windows is to choose a window type with multiple panes. With this option there are two panes of glass, with an air or gas-filled space in the middle. It insulates much better than single pane glass.

If you’re on a tight budget then energy-efficient windows would be the wisest choice that will save you costs. ENERGY STAR rated windows can save you approximately $126–$465 a year when replacing single-pane windows for an average home in Ontario.

How To Wash Your Home’s Windows Like A Pro

It’s not a task you would necessarily jump with excitement to do, but it’s one well-worth it when you can finally look out through sparkly clean windows and take in a clear view of the outdoors.  Typically, the exterior windows of your home should be washed twice a year.

You won’t need to hire a professional to clean your windows like a pro with these tips:

  1. Using a large bucket, combine hot water and dishwashing liquid, but not too much soap.  The less suds the better.
  2. Another at home cleaning solution that works well is one part and one part distilled vinegar.
  3. For picture windows, using long cloth head of a strip applicator work best.  It soaks up enough soapy water so that you don’t have to keep going back and forth for more while effectively loosening the dirt off the glass.
  4. Wipe clean with a squeegee.  Starting at the top, swipe the edge of the squeegee in an ‘S’ motion.  At the end of each ‘S’ motion dry off the edge of a squeegee with a rag and continue.
  5. Use another dry rag, wipe the edges to completely dry the window.

For multi pane windows, you’ll want to use a handheld sponge or scrubber to clean each separate glass pane of the window as well as finding a squeegee that will fit between each pane.
