As our Ontario leaves begin to change colour and the air turns crisp, there’s something magical about the arrival of fall. It’s a season that invites us to cozy up indoors, savour warm beverages, and enjoy the comfort of our homes. But how can you make your home truly autumn-ready? The answer lies in upgrading to energy-efficient windows this Fall. In this blog post, we’ll explore how upgrading windows and exterior doors can elevate your fall experience, from enhancing your view to saving on energy bills. Here are some key ways energy-efficient windows can enhance your autumn experience:
1. Welcome Natural Light and Fall Foliage
Fall is known for its breathtaking foliage, and energy-efficient windows can serve as your personal canvas to enjoy this beauty. Large, well-placed windows allow an abundance of natural light to flood your interiors, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Imagine sipping your pumpkin spiced latte while enjoying the view of leaves changing. Approximately 30% of a home’s heat escapes through its windows. During warm weather, roughly 76% of the sunlight striking standard double-pane windows transforms into heat. Energy-efficient windows will minimize heat loss to ensure you stay comfy while you revel in the view of a rich autumn-colour display.
2. Maintain Ideal Temperatures with Energy-Efficient Windows
While fall comes with cooler temperatures, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort. High-quality doors and windows with superior insulation properties can help maintain a consistent and comfortable indoor temperature. You won’t need to constantly adjust the thermostat, as our vinyl windows provide energy-efficient features to keep the warmth in and the cold out. Say goodbye to chilly drafts and hello to a toasty living space. Kempenfelt Windows & Doors’ Canadian-manufactured uPVC (vinyl) windows exceed certified energy-ratings, as they score top marks when compared with aluminum or clad windows with their better insulation values that reduce energy and heating costs.
3. Reduce Utility Costs and Energy Rebate Programs
Fall is often a time of transition, where we switch from cooling to heating our homes. Energy-efficient windows and doors play a pivotal role in reducing energy consumption. By minimizing heat loss, your furnace won’t have to work as hard to keep your home warm. This translates to lower energy bills, leaving you the option to spend on fall adventures, from apple picking to family road trips. Homeowners in Ontario may qualify for the Home Efficiency Rebate Plus (HER+) program. With new, high-performance windows that prevent condensation and eliminate drafts, the HER+ program will provide rebates of up to $10,600. So, thanks to energy-saving initiatives like HER+ program and the Canada Greener Homes Grant you may find updating your windows and doors a very affordable option.
4. Enhance Curb Appeal
Fall also presents an excellent opportunity to enhance your home’s curb appeal. New windows and doors can transform the look of your house, giving it a fresh, updated appearance that matches the season. Choose from a range of styles, finishes, and hardware to create a welcoming and stylish entryway. Fall is a great time to replace your windows. Set up your install now and you can have your new windows or doors in place before the winter weather hits.
5. Enjoy Peace and Quiet
As the world outside prepares for winter, fall can be a serene time. Energy-efficient windows come with the added benefit of superior noise insulation. You can relax in your peaceful haven, while escaping any unwanted noise from the outside world. This fall, embrace the beauty of the fresh outdoor vistas from within the comfort of your home with new energy-efficient windows and doors from Kempenfelt Windows & Doors.
