You might’ve installed new insulation. Maybe you recycled your old fridge. Chances are that you’re making the switch over to LED lighting. You’re doing all the right things to be more efficient. But you’re missing something big. Something that could have a dramatic effect on your home’s curb appeal, comfort and efficiency. Don’t worry, they’re easy to miss since you can see right through them. They’re your windows - and it’s time for some new ones.

Your home's windows play a large part in regulating energy use and cost. Even the most modern heating and cooling systems are inefficient if the warm or cool air you paid for is escaping the house.

Installing ENERGY STAR® qualified high-efficiency windows decreases drafts and air leaks, reduces condensation and can increase house value and curb appeal. Even better: these new, energy-efficient windows pay for themselves over time through lower heating and cooling costs.

Even the most energy-efficient window must be properly installed to ensure it works correctly. It's best to have a professional install your windows. Energy Trust of Oregon can connect you with a qualified contractor trained in the latest energy-efficiency techniques.

You may even be eligible for cash incentives from Energy Trust, and state and federal energy tax credits.
