Energy Efficiency: Why Upgrade?



As long as your windows provide natural light and offer some semblance of a view, why give them a second thought, right? Not so fast!

Old, poorly functioning or improperly installed and sealed windows can wreak havoc on your utility costs.

Ever seen your curtains move when the windows are closed tight?

Congratulations: You have leaky windows — and a leaky bank account come energy-bill time, but advances in glass-making and glass-coating technologies mean that replacing your windows can instantly increase the comfort in your home and save you money.

Our windows here at Residential Home Solutions are ENERGYSTAR® certified, meaning they use less energy! Replacing your old windows with ENERGYSTAR® certified windows lowers your household energy bills by an average of 12 percent nationwide (Can you say fantastic savings?!).

In Spokane, you can save an average of $259 when replacing single pane windows or $89 when replacing double pane windows (ENERGYSTAR®).


Lower energy consumption also reduces greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and shrinks a house’s carbon footprint, so go green and save the planet while saving on your energy bill…it’s a win-win situation!

If you still aren’t convinced as to why you need an update for your home, here are some other fun facts:

  • Get Comfortable: Say goodbye to cold, drafty breezes as well as overheated rooms. Our windows keep your home’s temperature consistently comfortable, where YOU choose to keep it! Uncomfortable stresses due to improper insulation and technology are a thing of the past. Enjoy rainy or snowy days by your front window under the most cozy knit blanket, or take in the sunshine with your favorite book on the reading nook in your library without feeling the outside temperature radiating from the glass.

  • Lifetime Warranty: Quality is meant to last. For as long as you own your home, we are here to help with your windows along the way. “Our dedication to quality gives you the comfort of knowing you will always be happy with your VPI Quality Windows, for as long as you own your home.”-VPI Quality Windows.

  • Protect Your Valuables: Our windows have the technology to act as a sunscreen, allowing your furniture, drapes and other sentimental items to withstand the otherwise daunting UV rays. Low-emissivity coatings on many ENERGYSTAR® certified windows and doors reduce UV sun damage to floors, carpets, and furniture.

  • Certified Performance: All ENERGYSTAR® windows, doors, and skylights are certified and verified to perform as labeled.

  • Energy Rebates: Most energy providers have rebates on energy efficient windows! Save anywhere between $1.50 and $3.00 a square foot of new glass installed. Click here to learn more!
