Study Says Energy Efficient Windows Reduced Heating and Cooling Costs

Posted By Tom Herron, National Fenestration Rating Council, Friday, January 18, 2013

A division of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) known as the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) is reporting that Americans used less energy to heat and cool their homes in 2009 than they did in 1993, and energy efficient windows have contributed to the reduction.

New survey results show the energy used to heat and cool American homes dropped from 58 percent in 1993 to 48 percent in 2009. The amount of energy used for space heating alone dropped from 53 percent in 1993 to 42 percent in 2009.
