So Many Ways You Can Save Money with New Replacement Windows

Tax refund burning a hole in your pocket?  You could blow it and splurge on something you’ve been longing for, or you could put that money to work, making an investment in your home that will save you money over time.  One great way to do that is to replace your old energy-wasting windows with new energy-efficient ones.

When it comes to window replacement, of course you want to make sure that you’re making the best decision. Replacing the older windows throughout your home can be a wise choice. They not only add beauty to the home, but they provide more functionality, increased ambiance, lower your energy bills and are a great investment to make. Here are some of the ways that new windows can benefit you and your home in the long run.

Money-Saving Benefits of Energy-Efficient Replacement Windows

Stop Loss of Heat (and Cooling)

When you’re able to keep the heat your furnace generates inside the home, you will pay less in general for the energy bill. The same happens with the cool air inside your home. These savings in your energy bill are going to add up over time.

With better coatings, more window panes and better spacers between panes, energy-efficient replacement windows can help keep the heat and cool air throughout your home in your home and not leaking outside it.  Many modern replacement windows now have technology that also blocs UV rays that come shining through the windows, while also helping reduce those annoying drafts.  Also, reducing heat transfer cuts down on condensation on the windows.

Prevent Water Damage

If you’ve ever had to pay for water damage, then you know that this is something that can cost a lot. When you have newer windows put in, you can beat the condensation that often happens with older or ill-fitting windows. Excessive condensation can cause wood to rot and problems such as mold to arise. Well-fitting, well-insulated windows can reduce the likelihood of condensation.

Maximize Your Tax Refund

When tax time rolls around, if you’ve had your windows replaced with energy-efficient ones, be sure to let your tax professional know.  Often there are tax credits available that can either increase the amount of your refund or reduce the amount of taxes you owe. Be rewarded for replacing those old windows throughout the home with newer, more energy efficient ones that are ENERGY STAR® approved.

In addition to this list, there are many other benefits that come with having new replacement windows installed in your home.
