Summer is coming and with hot weather comes the desire to find a way to cut energy costs. One such way is to replace the windows in your home. Did you know that unsecured windows can put you at a greater risk during tropical storms? Weakened windows can cause homes to become more susceptible to breakage under the duress of high winds and flying debris. Windows can also serve as a gateway for water to enter the home, causing water damage.
Having windows replaced can not only provide security for your home, it can also add value to your home while lowering your energy costs. If your windows are more than 15 years old, you may want to consider the benefits of replacements and curb the sky-rocketing energy bills. Old windows can not only sag your frames, they can jam and become difficult to open. Consider these facts according to energystar.gov:
For a typical home, choose ENERGY STAR and save:
- $126–$465 a year when replacing single-pane windows
- $27–$111 a year over double-pane, clear glass replacement windows
According to energy.gov
