Saving Money with Replacement Windows

While remodeling your home, the price and effort of window replacements have a tendency to cause homeowners to worry. However, residents of Phoenix are finding that investing in replacing windows can save you money in the long run. Here we will discuss some of the ways your Phoenix, AZ windows replacement project can add money to your wallet while updating the style of your home:

Energy Efficiency:

No one likes receiving an outrageous energy bill every month, and replacing your windows could be a solution to the problem. Many homeowners have seen up to a 70% decrease in their electricity bill in the months following new windows installations, making this investment a wise option for any home:

  • Remove Drafts: Overtime windows can crack, warp, and eventually create drafts that let out your heating and cooling. Choosing to replace your windows with a material like Vinyl, can help insulate your home and reduce your monthly spending.
  • Go with Double Panes: By selecting a window that uses double or triple pane glass, you are also helping insulate your home. The thicker glass helps keep the heat and cold, reducing your electricity use.
  • Decrease UV Rays: By replacing your windows with new ones that offer UV blocking technology, your home stays cooler, longer, reducing your use of air conditioning as well as your energy bill.
  • Allow More Sunlight: On the flip side of decreasing UV rays, you may opt for windows that allow more light to enter your home, thus decreasing the amount of electric lighting you use.

Added Resale Value

Your electrical bill isn’t the only way replacement windows can offer you savings. Having new windows installed can potentially raise the resale value on your home, offering up to an 80% return on investment on your window purchase.

  • Go with Vinyl: If your home currently has older, single pane aluminum windows, replacing them with vinyl windows is an instant investment for your home. The same is true for the doors in your home.
  • Choose Double Panes: Choosing to go from single pane to double or triple pane glass will also add onto the resale value of your home. Home buyers know that these types of windows will offer them major savings, in the long run, so they are usually willing to spend more up front.
  • Raise Your Asking Price: According to national data, spending $13,000 on vinyl window replacements can add around $10,000 to your resale value.
