Energy Efficiency Updates

Making Moves Toward More Energy-Efficient Windows

Environmentally conscious people are opting for window restoration over replacement to conserve energy, save money, and reduce their carbon footprint. Window restoration proves to be an effective, environmentally friendly way to conserve resources by utilizing what has already been produced. In addition, replacement windows that contain vinyl or PVC are toxic to produce, create toxic by-products, and are not recyclable.

By repairing, you keep your old windows from being thrown into the landfill, and once repaired, they can be maintained for the life of the building. Older windows are often made with denser wood that lasts a lot longer than replacement windows, given the right TLC.

Chosen Wood Windows restores, rebuilds, and reproduces sash, wood, windows, and doors. Our philosophy is to reuse what is good and replace what is necessary. We reuse all the good wood components in the existing window. If we replace the glass with insulated glass, we reuse the desirable distorted, wavy glass on other historical projects.

Go green, and save on energy costs!

  • Discarded windows add to already overcrowded landfills.
  • Manufacturing replacement windows produces more waste.
  • Large amounts of energy are consumed to extract and process raw materials, then assemble, transport, and install replacement windows.
  • Replacement windows use non-renewable resources, such as petroleum.
  • Forests are being depleted in the production of wooden replacements.
  • Replacement windows may be treatment with chemicals that contain toxins.


At Chosen Wood Windows, we are dedicated to helping you get the best energy efficiency. We can update your glass from single pane to insulating, clear to Low-E, and more. We can also do regular insulated windows and increase the energy efficiency by weatherstripping the window to close gaps and eliminate drafts. The bottom line is this: when it comes to energy efficiency updates, Chosen Wood Windows has your best interests and needs in mind at all times.
