How Getting New Windows can put Money into Your Pocket
Over the past several years, you may have noticed drafts that circulate around the interior of your home, without being able to identify their source. In the cold season, this can also mean higher utility bills, because it’s very likely that those drafts are coming from leaks or cracks around your windows. If you have old single-pane windows installed at your home, it’s also possible that you’re losing too much heat from your home, and that’s another reason your energy bills might be rising each month.
Savings on Energy-Efficient Windows
You may have heard a number of people talking about how installing new windows can put money into your pocket and actually save on energy bills. These are not just rumors, and there are hard numbers to back up the claims. In a recent study conducted by Remodeling Magazine, it was found that a high-quality vinyl window replacement delivered a return of 73.4%. This means that for an investment of $10,000, you might expect about $7,400 in return.
This represents a considerably higher return than most other home renovations and remodeling jobs can deliver. For instance, a remodeled kitchen returned about 62% of value in the same study, and that should be a good illustration of how beneficial a windows upgrade can be for your home. You can make this return even higher by choosing extremely energy-efficient windows.
Since it is known that windows are responsible for between 25% and 30% of home energy usage, it will be possible to save anywhere between $100 and $400 each year on energy costs. When you multiply that by five or 10 years, it becomes readily apparent that there are significant savings to be had by installing windows that are truly energy-efficient.
