BENEFITS of PVCu: Energy Efficiency

Lower Heating and Cooling Costs

Heating and cooling is the largest energy expense for most buildings, accounting for 56% of overall energy use. With vinyl windows keeping heated and cooled air sealed tightly within your home or building, heating and air conditioning units don’t have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature. You conserve energy – and save money. An investment in vinyl windows can often be recouped in as few as two years.
