Energy-efficient, insulated-glass replacement windows can increase your home's value while saving on heating and cooling bills.
Replacing old windows with new energy-efficient, insulated-glass windows “can significantly reduce your heating and cooling bills while adding value and curb appeal to your home,” says Danny Lipford at todayshomeowner.com. Deciding your want replacement windows is easy. It’s what comes after that gets complicated.
“Selecting the right windows for your home can be overwhelming given all the styles, materials, and features that are available to choose from,” Lipford says.
One of the toughest choices can be the style of the window. As thisoldhouse.com says, “Choosing a window style that goes with the rest of your house is another crucial concern. The wrong choice can ruin the look of your house and lower resale value.”
The website offers these general rules from Michael J. Crosbie, a writer and architect with Steven Winter Associates, an architectural consulting firm in Norwalk, CT: “Traditional or colonial-style homes look best with small double-hung windows with divided lights. … For modern or contemporary homes, large, metal-frame units are a safe bet. … Ranch-style houses often look best with out-swing casement windows that don't have divided lights. … If you don't like the window style you're replacing, look at designs in similar homes.”
