All across the nation yesterday, people paused in their daily routines to stop and watch as Barack Obama became the 44th president of the United States. The speech he gave on this historic occasion was in many ways a call to action: in this post, we’re going to consider how replacement windows can be part of the changes we as individuals make, as we all work together to make our country stronger.
The President said: each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet.
One of the major ways any of us use energy is to heat and cool our homes. Fuel oil, kerosene, natural gas, electricity or firewood — it doesn’t matter which option you use, the truth is that heating and cooling a home can use up a lot of resources.
When you consider that up to 40% of the heat produced by using these resources leaks right through old, single-pane, poorly insulated windows and doors, that’s a problem! Scarce resources aren’t being used…they’re being wasted!
Installing home replacement windows, particularly vinyl home replacement windows, helps slow the consumption of scarce resources. Instead of producing lots of heat, knowing that a good portion of it will be leaking away through old windows, a home owner can run their heating system less often and still maintain a comfortable living space, because vinyl home replacement windows keep warm air in!
Double or triple pane glass vinyl replacement windows are engineered to offer the ultimate in energy efficiency. When you select vinyl replacement windows from a quality manufacturer, such as Alside, you are ensuring that you’re doing your part to save energy. One person making a change to help the environment is good — but when we all work together for a common goal, that’s even better!
