The best way to save money on your electric bill this summer.

Houston, Texas is well known for its high humidity, and extremely hot summers. Residents in Houston notice almost a 200% increase in their bills during the summer.

So what’s one of the best ways to save on your electric bill during the summer in Texas? Well, you could simply not run your cooling unit, but we have a feeling most people wouldn’t want to make that kind of sacrifice. The main factor, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, is lack of proper insulation.

Your windows are one of the main components that affect proper insulation in your home. You want to make sure all your windows are correctly installed, so they are properly sealed and do not allow any cool air to leak out. The second factor is radiant heat from the sun. You want to make sure your windows have the proper coatings to reflect that intense heat. To further minimize heat coming into your home and running up your bill is making sure you have blinds installed. NuView windows have built in retractable blinds that are up to 40% more energy efficient than other conventional blinds! That’s definitely going to save you a lot of money on your energy bill (up to 50%). They also have the highest energy ratings on the market for window performance. The installation process for NuView windows also makes sure that everything is air tight and properly sealed. You also get the benefit of noise reduction and security with NuView windows.

So, in conclusion if you are looking to really save on your energy bill this summer, it might be a good idea to look at your current window performance and decide if it might be time to upgrade.
