Replacement windows are one of the best ideas for an older home, especially one with higher utility bills.
Many define an “investment” as something that puts money in the investors pocket. We believe replacement windows are an investment, because lower utility bills will put more money in a homeowners pocket through savings. Now is a good time to consider such an investment with temperatures at their highest in the peak of summer. How much was your June electrical bill? How much was your January heating bill? If those numbers make you a little queasy, keep reading.
The June number is due in part to the cool air leaking out of old windows and hot air seeping through the opening around those old windows. New windows are energy-efficient and can save up to 12 percent on utility bills. The Tri-state area has months of highs in the 80s and 90s and winters with lows in the teens and 20s.
