Don’t Put it Off Until Spring to Get Your Replacement Windows
When you need to replace your windows, it’s crucial to schedule this as soon as possible, even if that takes place during winter temps. That’s since windows are responsible for the biggest heat loss and gain in your residence, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
As windows age, they become less efficient and can leak up to 30% of your residence’s heating and cooling. This can badly affect your comfort. And, not to mention, your utility bills, which is approximately $2,060 yearly for the average family, according to ENERGY STAR®.
By installing energy-efficient windows in colder months, you’ll be able to get the benefits several months prior. This includes eliminating chilly drafts and enhanced control over indoor temperatures. You might even have a decrease in your utility bills, particularly if you choose ENERGY STAR-certified windows.

Here’s an estimate of the year-to-year savings you might see when selecting ENERGY STAR replacement windows*:
- Replacing single-pane windows: $101–$583
- Replacing double-pane windows: $27–197
It’s important to know these numbers vary based on the climate where you live, your utility rates and your home’s unique characteristics. With quality windows lasting for a few decades or more, these savings can really build up over their lifetime.
