Gifts bring great joy to all of us. To receive a gift or to give a gift is something everybody looks forward to.
Whether it is a birthday, a wedding or Christmas deciding the right gift is not easy. You want to be creative, unique and the want to make the occasion special for your loved one. There are lots of ideas going around and countless gift shops. You can even order gifts online. But it is not just the gift but the thought you put into it that makes all the difference. So instead of buying something which gives momentary pleasure and is a gift like everybody gives, why not try something which will keep giving, especially in the form of saving money in future? For example you can gift Energy Star rated home appliance to your friend. This would not only be useful but save energy too and be a small step in reducing her home energy bill. There are also some options where a small amount of the cost of the gift goes to a charity organization. Each gift you buy helps in providing a need of someone you don’t know.
But this Christmas season, how about gifting yourself and your home an unique gift which gives as long as you live in your home? Wondering what I am talking about? So here is what you can gift yourself- energy efficient windows. But my house has perfect windows you would say. Why change them? The answer is they make your home energy efficient.Again don’t be surprised. What have windows to do with energy efficiency? Let me tell you how replacing your old window with new energy efficient ones helps-
- Prevent loss of energy and air infiltration: It is estimated that apart from the gaps in the roofs and walls due to the penetrations caused by plumbing and electric wiring, almost 50 percent of heat gain or loss happens through windows. This naturally puts a strain on your heating and cooling systems increasing the energy consumption and resulting in high energy bills. Heat loss and air infiltration also makes your home uncomfortable and even unhealthy in the long run. Foam enhanced window frames made of wood, fiberglass and vinyl with weather stripping ensure better sealing and additional insulating properties against hot /cold air.
- Long lasting and easy maintenance: The window frames are sturdy,durable and don’t warp or rot easily. They are easy to open and close and can be cleaned easily.
- More light and energy efficient glass: The windows come with special glass which brings in more light in to your home. Champion windows come with exclusive high performance glass which helps keep the heat in during winter and the heat out in summer. This not only saves energy but keeps your home comfortable all through the year. Fading of carpets, furniture and drapes is also avoided because the glass shields the interior from the harmful ultraviolet rays.
- Excellent insulation and reduced noise: The windows are double pane or multi pane and filled with non toxic argon or krypton gas between the panes. This ensures excellent insulation preventing condensation and a quieter home with the sound kept out.
You can then considerably reduce the operating cost of your home by lowering your utility bills and even enhance the look of your home. Plus you get tax credit from the government helping you save more money. Then, go ahead and call Champion. They will offer you a no obligation free consultation and once you choose the right style from all the options available, they will come and install it for you.
