How Much Can You Save on Energy Bills With New Windows?

How Much Can You Save on Your Energy Bill With New Windows?Living room in single family home with wood floors, white brick walls, and energy efficient picture windows.

Have you noticed a steady increase in your monthly energy bill? If so, fitting your home with new windows that are energy efficient can dramatically help with bringing energy costs back down.

How Much Can I Expect to Save?

The amount of money you’ll save depends heavily on the type of windows that currently exist on your home. According to ENERGY STAR®, the average owner can enjoy an annual savings between $126 and $465 after replacing their single-pane windows with more energy efficient options, while homeowners who already have double-pane windows save from $27 to $111 per year.

Factors That Contribute to Energy Efficiency

There are a number of variables that can influence the energy efficiency of your home, such as:

Where You Live

Believe it or not, the climate in which you live plays a large role in your home’s energy efficiency. Homes that are located in warmer states tend to enjoy a greater average savings than those found in states with colder winters.

Number of Window Panes

Homes with single pane windows tend to have higher energy bills than homes with double-pane—and even triple-pane—windows. With single-pane windows, warm air tends to seep in to and out of the home with greater ease. Conversely, windows with multiple panes are generally filled with dense gases such as argon or krypton what make it difficult for air to pass through, serving as invisible layers of insulation.

Windows With Low-E Glass

Short for low emissivity, low-E glass has a special coating that helps block out ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) rays from entering the home, allowing homeowners to enjoy the natural light of the sun without the heat.

How Your Windows are Installed

No matter how well your windows are designed, they will only perform as effectively as they are installed. Poor installation practices can lead to openings in the window seal, which will allow warm air to pass through and cause a spike in energy costs.
