It’s true that there are other, more cosmetically pleasing and “fun” types of projects to focus on as opposed to new window installations. Few things are as rewarding, however, as replacing your windows and experiencing lowered utility bills, better soundproofing, and greater curb appeal. Today, we will discuss the energy benefits of new windows.
If your home was built prior to the 1990’s, it’s likely that you may have single-pane glass windows. These are hugely inefficient and allow heating and cooling dollars to fly out the door. When you switch to double pane glass, you gain a more energy efficient model. For instance, when you replace standard windows with energy efficient windows that meet the EPA, and the Department of Energy’s Star program, you could experience a 7 to 15 percent reduction in energy bills according www.energystar.gov. As an added bonus, you may also qualify for a tax credit equal to 10 percent of the product cost.
Of course, window replacement is always going to be an investment in your property. However, if you work with a trusted contractor who can provide efficient solutions—you may just reap the rewards in the long run.
