Do Double-Pane Windows Save Energy?

Do Double Pane Windows Save Energy

Nowadays, there’s no shortage of replacement windows on the market, many of them featuring dual glass panes separated by a gas fill, and all of them promising to dramatically reduce your energy consumption. But how accurate are these claims? Do double-pane windows really save energy? Generally speaking, yes, but there are many factors that determine just how much energy you will save and how this will translate into financial savings.

If the current windows on your home are old, then they’re most likely single-pane, meaning they are constructed with just one piece of glass built into the frame. If you upgrade to double-pane windows, regardless of the type, you will probably see some pretty significant energy savings. Energy Star 6.0® estimates a savings of between $126 and $465 a year when making the switch from single-pane windows to Energy Star 6.0-qualified double-pane windows. The amount of energy you actually end up saving will depend on how many windows you have in your home, how close your home is to surrounding structures, where your home is located, and so on. Also, how the reduction in energy use will translate into monetary savings will also vary. In other words, whether you are using oil, gas, or electricity to heat your home can affect the ultimate dollar amount that you end up saving. Perhaps a more accurate question to ask is whether double-pane windows are more energy-efficient than single-pane windows. To which our answer is a resounding yes!
