What they don’t tell you about Window Replacement
If advertising on AM radio is any indication, replacing your homes existing windows with “new, energy efficient” windows is all the rage. There are a lot of reasons for replacing your windows – to upgrade the styling, to repair broken frames or get rid of windows where there’s seal failure.
The number one reason people replace their windows, however, is for insulation/energy efficiency. You want to do what you can to be environmentally friendly, stay comfortable in your home and, if you can, save a few bucks while you’re at it.
When it comes to saving energy, windows are the weak point in your home. In the summer too much heat comes in, while in the winter too much heat gets out. Your A/C and heating systems need to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you money and excessive wear and tear on your equipment.
So, when you decide to make our home more energy efficient one of the first things you do is consider upgrading your windows.
But the dirty little secret they don’t tell you is — Replacement windows will never pay for themselves with energy savings.
They cost too much. It’s that simple.
