Do you live in Northern Virginia?  Are you getting tired of the bitter cold and snow!  Energy efficient replacement windows might not be able to stop the snow, but they sure can stop the cold from getting inside your home.  Most people have lived in or visited a home with drafty windows. They can leave you feeling cold in the winter and can allow undue heat in during the summer.  Not only are drafty windows a nuisance and an inconvenience for your family or guests they can also hurt your wallet.

Replacing your old windows can help prevent skyrocketing heating and cooling bills.  Even newer homes can benefit from better energy efficiency.  Choosing to replace your current windows with more energy efficient windows maybe a little more costly up front, but the long time benefits and savings are hard to ignore. There are some things to keep in mind when considering replacing your old windows.  To ensure that your new windows have the energy saving capacity that you desire for your home and budget here are some things to know.   One of the easiest ways to identify energy efficiency is the Energy Star label.  The Energy Star label tells the consumer that certain criteria set by EPA has been met. 

Another way to easily pick out a more energy efficient window is the NFRC Certification.  However, there are other things to look for and terms you should know in order to ask the right questions about your new replacement windows. Here are some of those terms:
