Screen shot from But that Myth video

Homes lose energy through gaps in windows and doors

Have you received flyers from window installers, heard friends and neighbors talk about replacing windows to reduce their energy loss at home, or seen TV ads from replacement window companies heralding energy savings? My answer is “yes,” “yes” and “yes.”

While new windows can make your home look great and increase your comfort, I want to bust the common misconception – or myth – that investing in windows is a smart energy efficiency action. So the DOER marketing team created a video providing accurate information in a fun way.

Please take a look at the first video in our “Bust that Myth” series. Let us know what you think, then please share the video.

Also, visit www.MassSave.com/residential to see what other smart energy actions you can take, with less investment and more results than putting in new windows. And look at our Heating and Energy Resources page for efficiency, renewable energy and do-it-yourself options.
