In fact, windows are one of the best energy-saving upgrades you can make to your home. On average, replacing single pane windows with double or triple pane windows can save up to $465 per year on heating and cooling costs. This is because well-built windows maintain a consistent temperature, meaning you don't have to spend as much money to stay comfortable.

The Benefits Of Window Replacement

The energy efficiency of windows also benefits the environment. Replacing double-pane, clear glass windows with more energy efficient options can save between 246 and 2,001 pounds of CO2 per year, the equivalent of 12 gallons of gasoline. Single pane window replacements can save even more, between 1,006 and 6,205 pounds of CO2 per year, the equivalent of 51 to 317 gallons of gasoline.

In addition to the energy savings, new windows can also increase the value of your home. On average, the installation of new windows can increase a home's value by $13,822, based on an average expenditure of $29,482. In 2022, Energy Star windows also provide up to $500 in federal tax credits for upgrades, repairs, and new installations.

Low emissivity glass, also known as low-e glass, can further enhance the energy efficiency of windows by reducing energy costs by 30% to 50%, fading by up to 75%, and the sun's heat by 78%. It also blocks 99% of harmful UV rays. By replacing your windows with low-e glass, you can reduce your carbon footprint by eliminating up to one ton of carbon in the atmosphere every year, which is the equivalent weight of a polar bear, the Liberty Bell, or a 1979 Volkswagen Beetle.
