It seems like everything is so expensive nowadays, especially gas and electricity. And with winter right around the corner, the latter is taking center stage. Before you know it Jack Frost will be nipping at your nose and your electricity bill will spike as you seek comfort from your warm furnace. This is why fall is the perfect time to prepare your home for the coming season. And your windows are a great place to start.
Fall is the Perfect Time for Replacement Windows
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), windows account for 25-40% of your annual heating and cooling costs, making windows an energy efficiency priority. We throw around this statistic a lot, but for good reason. Many homeowners do not realize just how big a role their windows play in the energy efficiency of their home.
“High utility bills are a clear indication that a home is rapidly losing heat,” said Bob Merrill, JELD-WEN executive vice president of sales and marketing. “New energy efficient windows and doors can help save money and make a home more comfortable.”
“Fall is the perfect time to replace windows and doors, before utility costs peak this winter,” he added.
With winter right around the corner and heating costs in the front of your mind, replacement windows make sense. Not only will they help curb heating costs, but they will add value to your home, improve curb appeal, and so much more.
The Temperature is Perfect
The weather is not too hot. It’s not too cold. It’s just right. Even Goldilocks would agree. This is why fall is the perfect season to replace your windows. You won’t have to worry about the temperature dropping significantly while the renovations are underway.
According to JELD-WEN, replacing old, single-pane windows with Energy Star qualified windows can save homeowners as much as $501 annually. Replacing double-pane, clear glass windows can save as much as $111 annually.
Increased Comfort on the Horizon
With winter so close, comfort becomes a concern. Windows can account for up to 20% of a home’s air leakage, which is why it is so important to check for drafts. Brrrrrrrr! It is cold just thinking about those drafts. Replacement windows can reduce drafts in your home and help make it much more comfortable this winter.
And So Much More!
