Can Replacement Windows Reduce My Energy Costs?

For homeowners today, choosing new replacement windows is just as important as how they’ll dress them up with window treatments. Energy-conscious homeowners want to minimize the costs of cooling and heating their homes, and opting for new, energy-efficient replacement windows is a great way to do so. When it comes to choosing new replacement windows for your home, there are several factors to consider if you’re concerned with energy-efficiency.

When it comes to choosing new replacement windows for your home, there are several factors to consider if you’re concerned with energy-efficiency.

Energy-Efficient Window Frames

You have many different options when it comes to the type of frame you can choose for your windows. Capital Remodeling offers vinyl replacement windows and are a practical choice to fit your budget while offering excellent energy efficiency. When well-constructed and properly installed, they can reduce air leakage while looking attractive and stylish on your home.


Great View windows offer a double strength superior glass to glass sealed unit, which protects the home from heat and cold all year long. The true, equal glass provides maximum energy efficiency while still allowing visibility and light to enter your home.


You’re concerned with energy-efficiency, but you also want your windows to look attractive. The following types of replacement windows are energy-efficient and available in a variety of styles:

  • Double hung replacement windows are the most common type of window, where the bottom slides up to open the unit.
  • Picture windows usually don’t open, so the glass choice and sealing is particularly important. When well-constructed, these windows are great for energy-efficiency.
  • Casement windows usually have a crank that swings the window outward to open. They actually seal themselves tighter when the wind blows towards your home! Make sure to maintain the hinges and seals to keep up their efficiency, however.


The quality of your windows means nothing with a shoddy installation job. Luckily, Capital Remodeling has years of experience and an exceptional eye for detail, meaning you have nothing to worry about. Proper installation seals up any cracks that can cause potential leaks, keeping the hot air outside and the cool air inside your home this summer.
