Reduce Heating Bills

Storm windows have evolved to provide an attractive, effective and simple way to reduce energy loss
Storm windows have evolved to provide an attractive, effective and simple way to reduce energy loss.

(NAPSI)—A clever way to save energy can help you keep your home heating money from going out the window. That’s because windows provide the biggest openings between indoor air and the elements outside and the biggest opportunity for valuable energy to escape, accounting for approximately 25 to 50 percent of energy loss in a home.

Inefficient, single-pane windows are the biggest culprit for energy loss. Replacing old windows with double- or triple-pane insulating glass is the one way to reduce energy costs-but no longer the only choice.

Storm windows have been around for generations, offering extra protection against wind, rain, snow and ice. Until now, however, they did little to protect against energy loss and were often difficult to install, with metal pins holding them in place. Today’s storm windows are designed to dramatically reduce drafts, and energy-saving storm panels are typically installed in place of window screens as an added layer of insulation for existing windows. These days, they can also be installed in seconds from inside the house with a unique press-in-place style that’s quick, easy and safe, even on upper-level windows. They’re handy for renters, too.

The panels from ScreenIt are built to order and available in a variety of colors and sizes, so they fit the opening and the style of the house. They also come with a heavy-duty cardboard sleeve for simple season storage year after year.
