Avoiding Energy Loss All Year Round

As we approach these coldest few months of the year, you’re probably dreading the higher energy bills, due to the cost of heating your home. On the other end, in the summer, our Cleveland sun can get really hot in July and August! We have several solutions, focused around your windows, that can help prevent energy loss in your home.

Window’s Are It’s First Way Out

Up to 40% of all energy loss in the home is via windows. Isn’t that crazy? The weather from the outside creates moving air against the windows, causing the interior to go into overdrive to compensate for the cold outside (or heat in the summer). Even if your windows are properly sealed, you may still be losing some energy, and comfort too.

Bare windows expose the house to more energy loss.

More than Just a Financial Problem

When a higher than normal energy bill comes in the mail, the whole family might start noticing the effects. Everyone might start reaching for extra layers or even pointing a few fingers.

  • Who turned down the AC again?
  • Can’t you just grab a blanket?
  • Brrr…Does it feel cold in here?
  • Why is every light on in the middle of the day?
  • I can’t sleep. I’m too hot, now I’m freezing.

Your Perfect Atmosphere

Each part of your home likely has different windows, thus leading to different lighting and temperatures depending on the time of day. Knowing when that room faces extra sunshine to help heat your house in the winter and when it doesn’t can help in finding the perfect solution to create a space that best works for you!

  • Morning sunshine will warm up the interior
  • Close the shades for the day to keep heat in
