- Use blinds or curtains with a white exterior side during the summer to reduce solar heat gain by up to 50 percent. Sunlight can increase the demand on your air conditioner by as much as 30 percent.
- Install awnings over windows to reduce the amount of heat transferred from sunlight.
- Buy windows with the ENERGY STAR® label when you’re renovating your home. ENERGY STAR® windows reduce heat gain or loss by as much as 70 percent.*
- Apply reflective film or solar screens to existing windows during the summer to reduce the amount of electricity used to cool your home. Solar screens are effective at stopping solar heat before it gets into your home.
- Replace your single-pane, clear windows with double-pane windows. Single-pane, clear windows are poor insulators and allow heat from the sun to transfer into a house. This forces your air conditioning system to work harder to compensate for the heat.
- Seal your windows with caulk or weather stripping to reduce air leaks and help maintain the desired temperature in your home year-round.
The electricity usage in your home is affected by the type of windows you have. Learn how you can maximize savings and lessen your energy use. Whether you would like to replace or keep your current windows, you have options.
