Having an energy efficient home means lower annual energy expenses. But it’s also better for the environment and can dramatically increase your home’s overall value. Whether you’re looking at ways to boost your home’s energy efficiency or you’re getting your home ready to sell, there are a number of options for increasing your home’s energy efficiency.


At The Window Store in Minnesota, many of our products carry the United States Energy Star Rating. We’ve put together this guide to walk you through some of our best upgrades for increasing your energy savings.


1.      Install EcoMaxx Windows

You’d be surprised at how much heat escapes your home through outdated single-pane windows. Replacing your windows with double-pane or triple-pane windows is a great way to help with your energy costs, but our EcoMaxx windows offer even greater energy savings. EcoMaxx windows are designed to transfer energy while keeping the temperature in your home comfortable and stable throughout the year.


2.      Add Energy Star Doors

Replacing your entryway or back door with an Energy Star rated door is another good way to help with your home’s energy savings. A more energy efficient door will help keep your home cozy even when those tough Minnesota winters take over each year. We offer a wide range of energy efficient doors to choose from and can help you pick the best door to meet your home’s needs.


3.      Repair or Replace Your Roof

If your roof is in bad shape, it could be costing you big on your energy bill. Our certified roofing professionals can assess your home and determine if your roof needs to be replaced completely or simply repaired. A roof replacement can also protect your home against future weather including storm damage and snow.


4.      Try Vinyl Siding

Upgrading your home’s siding can seriously help your home’s cooling and heating costs every year. Vinyl siding has a proven record of standing up to extreme temperatures, and it can withstand wild wind, heavy rain, sleet, and snow. Well-insulated vinyl siding also adds to your home’s curb appeal, which adds to your ROI.
