Do New Windows Really Save Energy?

Do New Windows Really Save Energy

According to Energy Star 6.0, installing energy-efficient replacement windows on your home can lead to significant savings, both in terms of your overall energy consumption and corresponding energy expenses. For the average home, when replacing single-pane windows with Energy Star 6.0-rated windows, you can expect to save anywhere from $126 to $465 per year. When replacing double-hung windows, this number is a bit lower, but you can still expect to save between $27 and $111 over the course of a year. Generally speaking, colder climates such as the Pacific Northwest and New England see the highest amount of energy savings from replacement windows, while southern California sees the least.

However, aside from your direct, out-of-pocket energy costs, buying new windows from a company that uses sustainable manufacturing techniques such as low emission or a higher percentage of recycled material can also be a supplementary way to contribute to lower levels of energy consumption. Many homeowners who are concerned about reducing the size of their overall carbon footprint have made it a priority to choose replacement windows that are sustainably manufactured in order to have an even bigger positive impact on the environment.
