If you’re buying a new home in
Muncie, you have the chance to play
a role in the amount of energy your home uses by
using a good design. Likewise, if you’re in the market
you have the chance to greatly update
the look of your home while using a good
design that encourages the opportunity for a smaller
carbon footprint. Let’s read over a few some tips
for the Muncie area.
Direction Your Windows Face
You should think about the direction your windows face and the environment you live in.
For instance, if it’s hot in
Muncie, you might want to think
about placing more windows on the north side of your home to limit
the amount of direct sunlight that will enter your
home. For windows that will still receive bright
sun, consider a design with overhangs and getting
windows with Low-E glass, which can help limit the amount
of UV rays coming inside your home.
On the other hand, if the climate in
Muncie is colder most of the year, you might think through placing
more windows on the south side of your house to improve
your solar gain. Just like they can help keep the heat out in warmer area,
Low-E windows help insulate and retain heat in your home.
Bumping Up Efficiency
with Replacement Windows
Maybe you’re not building a home in Muncie or
doing a huge remodel that may include shifting
window locations. If you’re just in the market for
replacement windows, you still have a lot of options
that can help you decrease the carbon
footprint of your home. Low-E windows are still a fantastic option.
You can find an option suited for nearly every climate. In addition to the windows themselves, the installation is critical to the performance of your windows—great

option for many customers.
