Solar Tubes can Make you Money!

Don't miss out on the benefits of solar power just because solar panels are not a good fit for your home. Add natural light to dim rooms with the simplicity of solar tubes that are inexpensive and easy to install. The money saved in electrical power will put money in your pocket.

What are Solar Tubes?

Solar tubes mimic flat ceiling lights that are powered by the sun. A seamless steel tube is placed between the ceiling fixture and the roof of your home that collect and deliver powerful energy from the sun. New technology provides control over how much light is allowed into the area.

What are the Benefits?

By adding natural light into a room, A/C costs are reduced, artificial light is limited and electric bills are decreased dramatically. Rooms feel more comfortable and the light will add brilliance and clarity to furnishings.

Is Installation Difficult?

Professional installation usually takes 2 hours or less and the design of the solar tube protects the roof and ceiling from any costly leaks. Shingle, tile, slate or metal roofs can easily be cut and adapted for solar lighting.

Best Conditions for Solar Tubes

Placing solar tubes in one story houses is ideal, but tubing is designed to run as long as 50 feet and horizontally, according to where the light is desired. They never compromise the beams by bypassing these areas.

Cost and Warranty

The price of solar tubes can run under $500, depending on your placement needs. Add ons, like ventilation systems for laundry rooms run extra. Almost all solar tubes come with a warranty against material defects and installation companies further guarantee their work. Always receive a copy of the warranty and enjoy the maintenance-free room addition.

Most homeowners do not realize the amount of money that is required to operate indoor lighting. Easy natural light is totally free and easily accessible with the innovation of solar tubes.

If you have always wondered how solar energy savings could have an impact on your light bill, solar tubes are the perfect way to discover the benefits. Schedule your FREE ESTIMATE or installation today and start putting back the savings from energy waste!

The 411 On Double Pane Windows | Windows Boise

Window Installation Boise | Home Energy Optimization Boise

Most people never really give much thought to their windows. Odds are you have never even thought of the type of windows that you have in your home or business. But the type of windows you have can make a huge difference.

 

What's the difference?

Traditional single pane windows are poor insulators that can leave rooms overly hot or overly cold. Modern double pane windows on the other hand, keep the hot temperatures out in the summer and the cold temperatures out in the winter. In fact there are a host of reasons to insulate your home or business with double pane windows.

Double pane windows lower energy costs. In a double paned window there are two parallel panes of glass that are set into the window frame separated by a small space. The space is filled with air on the lower rated windows and by a safe, inert gas in the higher rated ones. This space and the gas between it separates and insulates the inside of your home or business from the temperatures outside. By lessening the amount of heat gain or loss from outside conditions, double pane windows increase the comfort level inside.

No more overly hot rooms that get too much sunlight or overly chilly, drafty, damp rooms from having thin, single paned windows. Having more efficient windows will increase the overall comfort of your home or business. Noise reduction is another benefit from having double paned windows. They not only insulate against temperature extremes, but significantly reduce the amount of noise pollution from busy road ways, noisy neighbors or construction sounds outside. UV coatings are available for double pane windows too.

Although not recommended for colder climates where solar heat has its benefits, a UV coating in hotter climates reduces the need for air conditioner usage and reduces the fading of furnishings, curtains, and carpets from sun damage. Homes and businesses with double pane windows see a substantial cost savings in their heating and cooling bills as well. Even low end double pane windows can reduce energy consumption by 24% in cold climates and 18% in hot climates. But high end models can see a savings of 30% to 50% percent per year. In a few years the savings from having double pane windows installed more than covers the cost of installation.

Overall, with the savings, the comfort and value of double pane windows there really is no reason not to install them. They’ll reduce your heating and cooling bills and make your home or business comfortable all throughout the year. 

We are excited to provide the highest quality double pane windows.  Give us a call for a free estimate and find out how you can change your energy bills immediatly!
