Soaring Utility Bills? Use Energy Efficient Windows
When people from other states hear the word Lubbock, the first thing that comes to mind is its hot and dry climate. This is because of our location in the north-western part of the state of Texas where the climate is usually semi-arid.
This report from myfoxlubbock.com exemplifies the typical Lubbock weather:
The heat will continue through the weekend with afternoon highs in the upper 90s and 100s. We have trimmed down our high temperatures by a few degrees but overall it will still be hot. Rain chances will be slim to none with only a few clouds in the sky and the wind will stay light.
Changes will come at the beginning of next week as a cold front moves down into the region. There still are some questions about when exactly the front will get here and how far to the south it will move. Regardless it does look like our afternoon temperatures will cool down to around the average high of 93°, if not a little cooler.
Though this may be true, especially during summers when temperatures could reach the sweltering 100s, winters can also be really cold with temperatures usually dipping below freezing. This sporadic weather pattern in Lubbock constitutes to more energy consumption to most homeowners as they try to fend off the heat or the cold by using their cooling and heating devices excessively. In fact, the Lone Star state emits the most Greenhouse gases in the US (coming from numerous power plants in the state) because of the energy demands from households; causing severe problems in our environment.
In light of this, homeowners should look for other ways to keep their homes comfortably cool or warm all year round without having to rely on their A/Cs and heaters too much. You might want to consider improving your home’s energy efficiency not only to help you save money on utility costs; you can also help in the preservation of our environment in your own little way. Installing energy saving windows in Lubbock TX, for instance, could considerably help reduce your home’s energy consumption. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that up to 30% of a building’s energy (for heating or cooling purposes) is lost through inefficient windows. That’s like throwing almost one-third of the money you spend on your monthly energy bills out the window!
