Thus the inside temperature of your home rises quickly, and forces you to set your AC to a low temperature. This way, your AC uses up more electricity, and thus raises your electricity bill. It’s all connected together as a complete chain of events, in which you can change the course of events by just taking out one link.
This is where energy efficient windows come in. These windows are typically made of two layers of fiberglass, with a slight air gap in between. This air acts as a bad conductor of heat, and prevents heat of the sun from entering your home. Thus the indoors stay much cooler and you can set the AC at a much higher temperature. This helps reduce the consumption of electricity, and reduces your bills drastically. That’s not the end of the benefits either…
