The answer to that question is most likely “yes”! Most people don’t know how or why replacement windows can save them money, however. The truth is, there are several factors that contribute to the money saved from replacement windows. And all of these factors can save you a lot of money alone when corrected.
Take a moment to read how you could probably benefit from replacement windows, and why these benefits will save you money in multiple ways.
You’ll Save on Energy
Are you aware of how much of your heat or air conditioning is leaking through your windows? Replacement windows can make a huge impact on your energy bill, especially if you transition from single pane to double pane windows. Maryland has the luxury of all four seasons, but that means its homeowners take full advantage of heating and air conditioning. If your windows need replacement, all that heat and air conditioning is slipping outside and wasting away.
Federal Tax Credits
When you choose replacement windows that are Energy Star-qualified, you are eligible for a federal tax credit. They’ll reimburse you for 10% of your replacement windows cost, up to $200. If you need replacement windows anyways, this is a great opportunity, and windows that are backed by Energy Star (like many of the brands we offer) are good quality, and sure to also save you on your energy bill.
Protect Your Furniture
Replacement windows can offer options for UV protection. Old, untreated windows do not filter light, and unfortunately, UV light (sunlight) can fade your carpet, floor, and furniture. While you can have old windows treated, it’s more cost effective to have replacement windows installed with UV protection, as there is often a discount for the film that comes with your installation. And if your old windows are driving your energy bill up due to leaks, there’s no point in having them treated.
