Pay Less For Hydro In Ontario This Winter

Canadian citizens are well aware that the winter season can be especially long and especially brutal. Plummeting temperatures and rough storms make residents barricade themselves in their homes, and crank up the furnace to combat the winter chill. Sadly, many Canadians have discovered that their efforts to fight the bitter cold are met with the unfortunate consequence of rising hydro bills. If you want to avoid paying higher and higher rates to survive the winter weather, there is one solution you can try: brand new windows.

Hydro bill rates go up in the winter because more people are spending their time indoors and using appliances at all hours to deal with the cold. Whether the appliances are heating the whole house like the furnace or one room like a space heater, they are consuming energy at all times of the day. Some suggest that people should wear multiple layers indoors to limit their energy consumption while staying warm, but that suggestion is not a solution for the main problem: the cold air is getting into your home.

The major reason that cold is creeping into your home is that your windows are not functioning as they should and letting cold air inside. Replace your old and drafty windows with high-quality energy-efficient ones in order to protect your home from the weather outside. In order to replace the old and drafty windows, research local window companies to discover the latest replacement window options that will prepare your property for a rough season and keep the warm air indoors. If you live in or near Ottawa, you can choose a reliable company like Golden Windows to find impeccable energy-efficient windows. Their windows use low-emissivity glass with Argon gas, Warm Edge Technology spacers and weather-stripping to keep the cold air from getting into your property.

Energy-efficient windows are built for superior insulation and thermal retention—this means that residents using energy-efficient windows won’t need to constantly run heating appliances in order to be comfortable indoors. Purchasing these windows will help you conserve energy and reduce the rate of your hydro bills for this winter, and for winters in the future. This renovation choice would be highly beneficial to residents of the province of Ontario, who often deal with the stress of paying off incredibly expensive hydro bills. By protecting your house with the right energy-efficient windows, paying the bills will feel like much less of a financial and emotional burden.

Don’t feel burdened by the excessive costs of hydro bills, just because you want to stay comfortable and warm in the winter. Stop cold air from getting inside your home with high-quality energy-efficient windows, and reduce your need to keep heating appliances running all day and night. Your hydro bills will start to shrink the minute you install your energy-efficient windows, so you and your family will feel relieved of the financial stress, along with the winter chill.

    Hydro is expensive in Nova Scotia too. One of the first things we did after moving here from Ontario is replace almost all of our windows. We have a few more to replace but it’s on our to do list.

    Having good windows and a well insulated house does a lot of wonders, when we replaced all the windows in my home I could see the difference right away!! plus with our gas fireplace being on in the basement the big furnace doesn’t come on as much either

    Our home was only built 5 years ago so does have modern windows however it gets so cold here in Alberta that I get a lot of ice forming on my windows. I’ve even had more insulation put into the outside wall since my electrical socket on that wall was dripping water as the ice on it melted! Bad builder I’d say. There’s probably a lot more that we haven’t noticed, the water pipe had to be put on the correct side of the insulation for example and at least now the heating pipes in the ceiling have been connected – need I say more. This was of course all at my cost. Grrr…

    Windows sure can make a huge difference in the Hydro bill.

    Our house has new windows and it really didi make a big diffeence in heating cost. It’s ben a very cold fall in Alberta so we’ve had the heat on since September. Anything to reduce that cost is welcome.
