If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it…well, a lot. Your windows account for 25-40% of your annual heating and cooling costs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Yikes! So you have to ask yourself, “Are my windows energy efficient?”
“If your home has very old and/or inefficient windows, it might be more cost-effective to replace them than to try to improve their energy efficiency,” according to the United States Department of Energy (DOE).
With winter right around the corner, now is the perfect time to start looking into Replacement Windows. But not just any replacement windows, ENERGY STAR Qualified replacement windows.
“Fall is the perfect time to replace windows and doors, before utility costs peak this winter,” said Bob Merrill, JELD-WEN executive vice president of sales and marketing.
The Benefits of ENERGY STAR Qualified Replacement Windows
When it comes to choosing replacement windows, energy efficiency is the name of the game. And when it comes to energy efficiency, ENRGY STAR reigns supreme. In fact, ENERGY STAR qualified replacement windows can yield between 7-15% annual savings on household energy bills. To put this into more quantifiable terms, replacing single-pane windows with ENERGY STAR qualified replacement windows can save homeowners $126–$465 a year, while replacing double-pane can yield savings between $27 and $111 annually.
“New, energy-efficient windows eventually pay for themselves through lower heating and cooling costs, and sometimes even lighting costs,” according to the DOE.
