With summer rapidly approaching, many homeowners can expect to be seeing an equally rapid hike in their energy bills. Air conditioning and heating alike account for a huge chunk of energy expenditures in the average household, and these steep costs can end up taking a toll on the household budget. But if you are looking to cut down energy costs this season, there is a way to do it and make a long-term change to your home’s energy consumption: purchasing replacement windows. Read on to find out more!
Energy Star’s recent statistics show that your energy costs could seriously benefit from an investment in replacement windows. In the Baltimore area alone, homeowners can predict savings of up to $263 per year by replacing their original single pane windows and $93 by replacing their original double pane windows when they invest in Energy Star Rated replacement windows. The reason for this is a simple one: the majority of old-style windows were not designed with energy efficiency in mind, and therefore they let out large quantities of hot air in the winter while letting cold air in, and vice versa in the summer. But replacement windows, with the benefits of modern design and technology, are infinitely more energy efficient and keep warm and cool air in when they need to. This makes for a much more comfortable home overall- and your wallet won’t be doing too badly, either!
Bonus Benefit of Replacement Windows
Investing in replacement windows now will not only help you save on your immediate energy costs, but it will also help you improve the value of your home. The average return on investment for energy efficient windows ranges from 75 to a whopping 125 percent!
