If you’re like most homeowners in Asheville, NC, you’re thinking of buying replacement windows to help reduce your energy bills. With consumers losing $35 billion per year due to inefficient windows, new replacement windows in Asheville can certainly keep more energy dollars in your bank account. However, it’s important to keep in mind that not all replacement windows are energy efficient. This is an unfortunate reality that Asheville homeowners face when they invest in the wrong replacement windows—and this quick guide can help you make the right choice for your home.

  • When you’re looking to truly make a difference on your energy bills, you’ll need to steer clear of bargain basement windows. Although budget windows are an attractive option due to their low price, you won’t save much when it comes to your utility bills.
  • The reason why budget windows don’t save much energy is due to their engineering. Budget windows are typically low quality, and they don’t incorporate energy-saving technology such as argon or krypton gas and low-e glazing.
  • Another overlooked aspect of energy efficient replacement windows in Asheville is window installation. Your window’s installation plays a large role in terms of its performance. When windows are incorrectly installed, they are prone to leaks and drafts. Even if you pay $1000 per window, a bad installation job will reduce any energy-saving benefits.
  • The most effective replacement windows in Asheville for energy savings are UniShield® windows. UniShield® windows are exclusive to Universal Windows Direct, and they’re a popular option for homeowners all over Asheville.
  • UniShield® windows are a great choice for saving energy for several reasons. First, these windows are engineered with two-to-three panes of glass. Homeowners then have the option of selecting argon or krypton gas between the panes to increase thermal efficiency. Your windows are then topped up with a double coat of low-e glazing to reduce infrared energy from entering your home.

The best news is that UniShield® is available in four tiers of glass packages to fit your budget. To learn more about how UniShield® windows can help save you more energy, contact us for a free quote.
