How Much Could You Save with Replacement Windows? June 9, 2016 Replacing the windows is a significant investment. Many homeowners don’t realize that replacement windows can actually increase the value of their house. It can also help them save a tremendous amount of money throughout the year, mostly during the winter on heating expenses. The more energy efficient a window is, the more it’s going to cut down on drafts. The fewer drafts in your home, the warmer your home will remain without the heating system having to constantly run, especially on those extremely frigid nights. How much you save on replacement windows will depend on the type of windows you choose and their energy efficiency rating. If you have the money to invest and so desire, you can consider installing triple glazed windows as opposed to double glazed windows, but they are much more expensive and heavier than their counterparts. On the other side of that coin, though, they can be 80 percent more energy-efficient than single glazed, basic windows. It all comes down to how much you’re willing to invest and how much you want to save month after month, year after year.
