Few home improvement projects have the ability to affect both energy efficiency and aesthetic appeal. Roofing immediately comes to mind. Roofing can increase energy efficiency, decrease energy bills, and give your curb appeal a much needed boost. However, roofing does nothing for the aesthetic appeal of the inside of your home. There is only one home improvement project that can impact energy efficiency, as well as the aesthetic appeal of BOTH the interior and exterior of your home: Replacement Windows.
Replacement Windows: The Link between Energy Efficiency and Aesthetic Appeal
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), windows account for 25-40% of your annual heating and cooling costs. Yikes! Your old, inefficient windows could be costing you money. They could also be detracting from your home’s curb appeal. That’s what we like to call a lose-lose situation. The solution: Replacement Windows.
ENERGY STAR® qualified replacement windows can yield between 7-15% annual savings on household energy bills.
Replacement windows can instantly boost a home’s curb appeal as well as the aesthetic appeal of interior rooms.
Return on Investment
Did we mention that replacement windows also yield a pretty significant return on investment (ROI)? According to JELD-WEN, replacement windows have a ROI between 75 and 125 percent. Wow! Not too many home improvement projects can promise those types of returns.
“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. “High utility bills are a clear indication that a home is rapidly losing heat. New energy efficient windows and doors can help save money and make a home more comfortable.”
