Why You Should Insulate Instead of Replacing Your Windows

In Weymouth and the Greater Boston area, we often get all extremes of weather. From snowstorms in the winter to heatwaves in the summer. The vast changes in temperature are not good news for energy bills. Investing in proper insulation could save you hundreds of dollars each year.

According to the North American Insulation Manufacturers Association, did you know 90% of homes in the United States are under-insulated? If your home is in that 90%, you are wasting a lot of money in heating costs and your home often feels cold because of a drafty home. By improving your attic insulation, you can make your home cozier and cost less to heat.

How Much Heat Are Your Windows Losing?

As discussed above, a poorly insulated home will allow warm air to leak through any gaps along the window frame. Due to the temperature difference during the winter, warm air will continue to be pulled from the room to the outside resulting a chilly room. Many homeowners think to reduce the heat loss is to replace them but never thought of insulating them. With proper insulation, your windows can easily become energy efficient.

How Much Warm Air Does Insulation Keep In?

Insulation will protect your room by reducing the heat loss through the attic and roof. Approximately 25% of heat loss occurs in that area. That’s why it is highly recommended to insulate your home first over your windows. A professional insulation installer will know which areas to seal such as vents, light fixtures, and other energy drains.
