WACO, Texas, Aug. 9, 2018 /CNW/ -- With summer in full swing, temperatures will continue to heat up outside, while home air conditioning units will be cranked up inside. During temperature extremes, homeowners are inadvertently tossing hard-earned money (along with cool air) right out the window the minute the air conditioner kicks on.
Even if homeowners follow energy-efficient guidelines of setting the thermostat at 78 degrees in the summer, improperly sealed windows make this a futile effort. The specialists at Glass Doctor, a Neighbourly company, and a global franchise organization specializing in glass repair and replacement, explain how homeowners can be more energy-efficient during summer months with the right windows.
Insulated Glass Units or IGUs are double-paned windows that are sealed with gas insulators to prevent condensation and air leakage. Learn more about the benefits of IGUs and how they can save homeowners money by replacing those leaky and drafty windows.
