Energy consumption affects the Philosophical, Financial, Physical and Social aspects of our lives. It is the end result of a balancing act or, a value equation that we use in considering the method, the cost, the quality, and the environmental impact of how we live.
The windows and patio doors that we at Jantek design, manufacture and install are at the core of that energy consumption value equation a homeowner or building owner must work through when researching a replacement window project.
Just how do windows and patio doors impact the energy consumption of a home or building? Since 1995, Jantek Windows has assisted thousands of customers in understanding how to properly balance saving energy, capturing comfort, and the cost of their replacement windows and patio doors. The fact is, that windows and patio doors impact well over half of a home (58% to be exact) or building’s energy consumption. Here’s a breakdown of an US Dept of Energy study of the impact on energy consumption of windows and patio doors by category:
- Heating (23%)
- Cooling (13%)
- Lighting (18%)
- Ventilation (3%)
- Total (58%) of all the energy consumption in a building
In fact, since buildings account for a whopping 40% of the US primary energy consumption, this translates into windows and patio doors in buildings (including homes) having an impact 14% of all the energy consumed in the US!
