In almost all cases, window attachments are used in tandem with your windows rather than in isolation. It is important to understand the relationship between the two types of products. If your windows are newer, and if they seem to be working effectively, you likely would not consider window replacement. However, if you are looking for greater control over light and temperature, one or more of the window attachments product categories described here may be a cost-effective investment.

When considering the various options for window attachments, it is important to understand how these attachments can affect your window’s performance.

Why is the Window System So Important?

Windows are an important feature in almost any home or building. They contribute to the visual appeal and lighting of a room, and affect the comfort of the interior space. They are often combined with window attachments, which further add to a room’s decor, allow for privacy and give people the ability to adjust the amount of light entering their home. Together, windows and attachments create a system that is very important in making your home comfortable. What’s more: window systems have a huge impact on the amount of energy that our homes and other buildings consume. In older homes, window systems typically account for 25% of annual heating and cooling costs but can be responsible for as much as 40%. This means you might be spending more money than necessary on heating and air conditioning.

The good news is that you can easily minimize energy loss through your windows in a variety of ways. This could mean replacing an inefficient window, adding window attachments to your existing windows, or a combination of both.
