It’s so hot outside now, it’s hard to remember that, within weeks, the temperature will start to drop until this winter when the average high will be about 56 degrees F and the average low will go down to about 40 degrees, according to the Weather Channel at weather.com. Right now, that cooler weather seems like a dream and you fantasize about running around half naked in the cold just to stop sweating for one minute. But that moment of bliss will wear off pretty fast when you have to heat your home and you start getting electric bills that resemble the ones you’ve been getting to keep your house cool all summer.
There is a way to save on energy bills – as much as 7 percent to 15 percent annually, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. That is to replace your old windows with new energy-efficient versions. Those new windows, DOE says, “will improve indoor comfort and filter out damaging ultraviolet light, while potentially saving you hundreds of dollars a year on heating and cooling costs. ... Traditional window materials used in houses across the U.S. – single pane glass and later double-pane clear glass – do a poor job of keeping out the cold and excessive heat. … Replacing old windows represents a significant investment, but the payback in terms of improved thermal comfort, reduced energy usage and money saved over the long term makes replacement a smart choice.”
DOE estimates the savings at $71 to $501 a year depending on your location and what type of windows are being replaced. There’s another upside that DOE doesn’t mention: Replacement windows can upgrade the curb appeal of your home, thereby increasing its value.
