Are your current windows leaving your home feeling overly warm and humid inside? Let Hometown Contractors, Inc. help you feel more comfortable and cut back on the utilities with our energy efficient vinyl windows. You’ll find that there are many benefits to making this upgrade in your home.

How Energy Efficient Windows Improve Comfort

Your new energy efficient impact windows work in a number of ways to improve your family’s comfort and safety. As impact windows, they are laminated to help them resist breakage when hit by an object. Even if the glass does break, the shards will stay mostly connected together via the laminated plastic layer. You won’t have to worry about your family being hit by flying shards of glass.

These durable impact windows are also able to provide improvement in other ways, such as:

  • Reducing exterior sound noise by as much as 50% over single pane glass.
  • Impact windows also offer reduced solar heat gain over other non-laminated windows.
  • Lower UV ray penetration through the glass means less carpet fading and skin damage.
  • Impact windows are strong enough to resist or slow down would-be burglars.

How They Work to Insulate the Home

At Hometown Contractors, we also provide windows with a range of energy efficient features that help reduce your electric usage, maintain a stable temperature indoors, and help you save money. Here are some of the efficient options in our custom windows:

  • Low-E Glass
  • Triple-Step Sill
  • Window Tints
  • Vinyl Window Frames

How Much Savings You Can Expect?

The savings you can expect from your energy efficient windows, especially if going from single-pane to double-pane, are quite substantial. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, you can save on average about $250 per year in the warm climate of Florida. Within a handful of years, you could see a return on your investment in new windows.

In addition, homeowners can also see potential savings on their homeowner’s insurance. Per NBC News, homeowners could see a credit of up to 10 to 15% on their policies after installing storm-safe windows.
