How Much Does Upgrading to Energy Efficient Windows Save?
Studies have repeatedly shown that replacing the windows in your home is one of the most cost-effective home improvement projects out there. If you live in an older home you likely have single-pane windows. These single-pane windows are frequently the cause of up to 70% of the air that is lost from your home. When you replace these with energy efficient windows you can reduce your utility costs by up to 25%. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that replacing single pane windows with energy efficient windows, you will typically save between $126 to $465 a year on energy costs.
New Technology in Windows
The technology available nowadays in window design is astounding. You can choose from double or triple pane windows for your home. Windows can now be coated with a very thing coating that makes them Low-E. Low-E stands for low thermal emissivity. Low-E windows block 94% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. This will help your walls, floors, and furniture last longer. The combination of these features not only saves you money on your monthly utility costs, they could also qualify you for rebates and credits on your taxes as well as from your utility companies.
Are New Windows Worth It?

Safety & Noise Reduction Windows
