Fall in Tennessee is a great time of year. It’s the season of sweatshirts, bonfires, and changing leaves. That oppressive heat and humidity of summer retreats, and you get to open up your windows to enjoy that fresh air yet again. But sooner or later, fall will lend itself to winter, and you know what that means: turning on the heat. Like most homeowners, you don’t look forward to those winter heating bills. Perhaps you’re ready to make some upgrades to make your home more energy efficient. If so, consider replacement windows from Window Depot of Tennessee.
The main reason people replace their windows is to increase home efficiency. When you choose certified ENERGY STAR windows, you are guaranteed to see savings. Note that your savings will fluctuate based on the quality of your previous windows and just how cold winter gets from year to year. However, ENERGY STAR reports that most homeowners across the United States see annual savings between $101 and $583 when replacing single-pane windows and $27 to $197 when replacing double-pane windows.
Additional benefits of replacing your windows include:
- Easy-to-use features (open and shut smoothly, easier to clean, etc.)
- Increased comfort (fewer drafts)
- Higher UV protection for you and your belongings
- Increased home resale value
The biggest reason that most people drag their feet replacing windows is the initial cost—and we get it. That’s a chunk of change that you either have to plan ahead for or find a way to finance. However, if you do the math, you know that the initial cost will pay for itself over time with increased energy savings. And in the meantime, you get to enjoy a cozy home with more controlled climate.
