Electric Rates are Soaring. Make Your Home Energy-Efficient

A large chunk of electricity generation in the US is fueled by burning oil or other fossil fuels to power turbines. However, we can’t rely on this resource forever. Aside from the adverse environmental effects, the supply is currently dwindling every day.

Since we’re still developing a world to be dependent on alternative power sources such as solar, wind and water, we still have to play our part in limiting our usage of electricity. Not only will this benefit the environment, but it will also keep our electric bills low. One component of the house that has a major effect on our energy consumption is our windows.

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC):

Most homes in the United States are less than optimally insulated, and older homes tend to have higher heating and cooling costs than newer homes. Installing proper insulation, windows, ducts and heating/cooling systems can help keep these costs down while improving the comfort of your home.

A good set of windows can insulate your home well. With summer approaching, New Jersey is going to be taking in a lot of sunshine. When the heat is on, your air conditioning will be as well; but by installing energy-efficient windows for your home, you won’t need to keep it on all the time.

All County Exteriors takes pride in providing energy-efficient windows for Ocean County NJ. Our windows are made up of insulated frames, specially treated glass, and advanced sealants to remain weatherproof and prevent the leakage of air.

But these innovations don’t mean that your windows will lose their appeal. We make sure that your house windows in Ocean County NJ are stylish too. Electricity bills may be rising, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. Make your home energy-efficient and comfortable for you and your family.
