In today’s world, energy efficiency is the name of the game. And while homeowners have several options to increase the efficiency of their home, perhaps no project has a bigger impact on both efficiency and aesthetic appeal as new windows.
Weill Energy Efficient Windows Save Me Money?
According to estimates from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), your windows account for as much as 40% of your annual heating and cooling costs. As you can imagine, the right windows make a ton of difference. Energy Star estimates that homeowners across the country who invest in Energy Star-rated replacement windows can expect to save as much as $446.00 per year on single pane windows and up to $59.00 per year on clear glass double pane windows. Here in the Baltimore and areas, these numbers are closer to $263 and $93, and $270 and $99, respectively.
“New, energy-efficient windows eventually pay for themselves through lower heating and cooling costs, and sometimes even lighting costs,” according to the DOE.
Replacing ugly, inefficient windows should be one of your top priorities.
