As the weather cools down in Butler, residents may reflect on the rising costs of heating their homes every winter. Replacing windows can help to efficiently keep warmth within your walls, according to local industry representatives.
Matt George, owner of Butler’s Window World, said replacing windows in your home should not be a common occurrence.
“Once you replace them, you won’t have to again in your lifetime,” he said. “Once it gets cool, people remember how high their heating bills were last year.”
Window technology has advanced significantly over the years, George said, and customers have way more options that can increase efficiency.
For example, insulated windows have two panes of glass with argon gas injected between the panes. The coating keeps heat out in the summer and and inside in the winter.
