It Might Be Time to Replace Your Windows
If you live in a home that has old, drafty windows, you are probably aware of the amount of energy that slips out through your imperfectly sealing windows. What you are probably aware of as well is that replacing the old windows with new, modern ones would reduce your heating and cooling costs significantly and the new windows would also improve the comfort of your home.
You can also call on a great Flagstaff roofing company like Polaris Roofing Systems to install insulation in your attic for added energy savings. If you have been considering replacing the old windows, but the high costs of the replacement seem discouraging, here are a few facts and tips that might help you make the best decision:
- New, Energy Star-qualified, double or triple pane windows reduce the energy loss through the windows by half,
- Depending on the size of your home and the number of the windows you have, you can expect to save between 120 – 460 dollars per year on energy bills,
- The new windows might be expensive, but you can apply for federal tax credit to get help financing the replacement without being required to replace all the windows on your home, so it is a good idea to check the details of the support program and to do the math, factoring in the tax credit as well.
