More and more people are looking for ways to be eco-friendly and cost-efficient at home. Have you ever considered how your windows can save you money while also helping the environment?
Traditionally, windows in Canadian homes consist of one or two layers of glass. The quality of your windows is what matters, and it’s what can significantly affect your hydro bill. During the winter, it’s more obvious how windows can affect the temperature of a room. Lesser quality windows can allow drafts of cold air in, forcing you to turn the heating up. On top of that, while the cold air keeps coming in, the warm air from inside the house seeps out. This of course uses more energy and increases your hydro bill.
