a role in the amount of energy your home consumes by
using a good design. Likewise, if you’re looking
you have the opportunity to greatly upgrade
the look of your home while utilizing a good
design that encourages the opportunity for a smaller
carbon footprint. Let’s take a glance at some pointers
for the Monroe area.
Direction Your Windows Face
You should consider the direction your windows face and the weather
conditions you live in.
For instance, if it’s hot in
Monroe, you might want to consider placing more windows on the north side of your home to limit
the amount of direct sunlight that will go in your
home. For windows that will still have exposure to bright
sun, consider a design with overhangs and buying
windows with Low-E glass, which can help limit the amount
of UV rays entering your home.
On the contrary, if the climate in
Monroe is cooler most of the year, you might consider placing
more windows on the south side of your house to improve
your solar gain. Just like they can help keep the heat out in warmer places,
Low-E windows help insulate and hold heat in your home.

doing a huge remodel that might include moving
window locations. If you’re just in the market for
replacement windows, you still have many options
that can help you reduce the carbon
footprint of your home. Low-E windows are still a good possibility.

much every climate. In addition to the windows themselves, the installation is critical to the performance of your windows—great
