Replacing Your Windows & Doors Saves Energy!
One of the most important reasons to replace your home’s windows is to improve energy efficiency. Compare the energy efficiency among window products by reading the labels.
Windows that have the ENERGY STAR® label have passed standard testing to prove the products meet minimum criteria for energy efficiency. ENERGY STAR®-qualified windows can help to reduce your utility bill up to 15%. In additions, ENERGY STAR®-qualified windows, doors and skylights do more than just lower energy bills, they deliver more comfort, create less condensation and protect your valuables from sun damage better than conventional clear-glass double-pane alternatives.
For more information on how window products qualify for the ENERGY STAR® label, visit the ENERGY STAR® website.
Here is a list of common reasons why you should replace your windows:
Poor window energy efficiency
Windows are faded, worn or outdated
Windows are bowed, sagging or bent, creating pockets of air infiltration
Windows leak during rainfall
Windows accumulate condensation or frost between panes
According to the US Department of Energy, heat loss from an inefficient window can account for 10% to 25% of your home’s heating bills. If your home’s heating or cooling bills increase every year, installing new windows can improve efficiency and lower bills. Replacing single-pane windows with energy efficient windows will dramatically lower heating and cooling costs.
In a study published by the National Association of Home Builders in 2007, aluminum windows are expected to last between 15 and 20 years, while wooden windows should last up to 30 years. Since they are considered more durable than wood or metal windows, vinyl and fiberglass windows may last even longer.
If you live in an older home and the windows are at least 15 to 30 years old, you may want to consider replacing them for any of the reasons noted above.
