How Can Vinyl Windows Improve Your Home’s Energy-Efficiency?

Double-pane white vinyl windows installed in an updated living room, looking out on greenery and trees.

Managing the energy efficiency of your home shouldn’t be difficult. However, every winter, a home with inefficient windows can account for a 10% to 25% increase in your heating bill just by letting excess heat out your windows. That’s money you can easily save.

With Potomac View Energy’s high-quality vinyl windows, we can help you save money on your next energy bill.

What Affects a Window’s Energy Efficiency?

Typically, you lose most of your home’s energy efficiency not through window glass but through poor sealing and insulation around the window frame. Having non-energy efficient glass in the windows doesn’t help either.

That’s why Potomac View Energy focuses on getting your window installations right the first time.

All Our Windows Are Installed To Prevent Drafts

We make sure every window fits perfectly, sits flush, and is sealed tight. From there, we install windows with thick 7/8-inch insulated glass with triple-layered weather stripping to make sure your windows have a strong seal to keep your home energy-efficient.

Our Industry-Leading Window Glass Helps You Save

But the seal is only part of the issue — the glass, seal, and frame of the window combined are graded on an R-value. The higher the R-value, the more energy-efficient the windows are.

Potomac View Energy carries windows with an R-value of 9, which is among the highest available. But anything with an R-value of 4 or higher will save you money on your heating bill.

While having vinyl windows installed will help improve the energy efficiency of your home, there are tax credits available for homeowners who install vinyl windows. Even if you just install one window in your home, you’re eligible for tax credits on your next return.
