What to think about if you are replacing your windows

Windows provide our homes with light, warmth, and ventilation, but they can also negatively impact a home’s energy efficiency. You can reduce energy costs by installing energy-efficient windows in your home. If your budget is tight, energy efficiency improvements to existing windows can also help.

Improving the Energy Efficiency of Existing Windows

You can improve the energy efficiency of existing windows by adding storm windows, caulking and weather stripping, and using window treatments or coverings.

Installing ENERGY STAR qualified windows lowers energy bills and saves you money over single-pane and even new double-paned, clear-glass windows. For a typical home, choose ENERGY STAR and save: $126$465 a year when replacing single-pane windows. $27$111 a year over double-pane, clear glass replacement windows.

 

Look beyond the window

Poorly installed windows won’t deliver the comfort or performance you paid for.
But a reputable dealer – a licensed, insured company that sells and installs replacement windows – can help ensure your new energy-efficient windows deliver their full value.

During installation, make sure to check on important factors like:

  • A little extra room for shimming and insulating
  • Existing trim work that is secure and big enough to fit your replacement windows
  • Fiberglass insulation or non-expanding foam insulation that fills every crevice – Check for drafts by holding a flame up to the window to see if it flickers.
  • Proper flashing, drip cap included
