Are Insulated Windows Worth It?


Published on June 18, 2014 under Energy Efficiency

There are many reasons you may consider replacing your older windows with new insulated windows, whether you’re looking for windows that are more durable or are looking to change the appearance that your current windows currently give your home. One of the best reasons to replace your windows is the money you can save on your energy bill.

Windows can cause your energy bills to be high due to drafts that enter the home between the sash and frame. These energy leaks add up quickly. Did you know that replacing your standard single-pane wood windows in Maryland can potentially save you hundreds of dollars on your monthly energy bill, according to energystar.gov?

By replacing older windows with new insulated windows, you may save up to 18 percent in the summer months. In winter the savings are more significant; you may save up to 24 percent on your heating bills thanks to your new windows ability to keep the heat inside without letting the cold air in.

In addition to saving on your energy costs, you may enjoy these benefits when switching out older windows for new insulated windows:

  • New windows will open and close easier.
  • New windows are easier to take care of and maintain.
  • Certain windows can help filter UV rays, reducing fading that can happen with upholstery in your home.
  • Replacing old windows may make the inside of your home quieter.
  • Adding new windows can increase the value of your home.

As you can see, replacing windows in your home, may help you save money in addition to the many other benefits.
