Many people are unaware that up to 50% or more of your homes heating bill can be attributed to heat loss through glass. A typical dual pane window has an R-value of only 2.5. Compare that to your average wall R-value of 21 and you can see why people often refer to their windows as “holes in the wall.”
Although it is the preference for most homeowners to have as many windows as possible to let in our precious sunlight, this is often a two edged sword for most Alaskan homes. If you’ve ever sat on a piece of furniture located near a window on a cold day, you can typically feel the cold air falling from the window and creating “convection” type drafts that move cold air though out the house making it feel cold and drafty despite where the thermostat is set. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it is costly. The cold air you are feeling move off of your windows isn’t so much cold air moving in, as it is the warm heated air from your house moving out, and yes, that is heat you have paid for.
