In these times of rising energy costs, many Walpole homeowners are looking at ways to save money on heating and cooling bills.¬† If you’re looking to cut back on energy costs and usage, replacing your older, leaky windows is actually one of the most efficient solutions! With the new federal tax credit rebate of up to 1,500 – makes this an even better time to upgrade your windows.

If your home currently still has old single pane windows, you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that they’re inefficient. Why? Because they are not insulated and typically aren’t treated with heat-reflecting or low-E coatings, this will allow a great deal of heat transfer in and out. Meaning whether you’re cooling or heating your home, some of your energy is escaping through the thin glass of your windows. Also, if your windows are broken or damaged, they’re probably leaking, regardless of whether they’re single or double paned.

To make your home more energy efficient, you need replacement windows. In fact, according to a Consumer Reports October 2007 article, double pane replacement windows can save you between 20% and 30% on energy costs annually (vs. single pane windows). You’ll want to select new windows with insulating features for the greatest energy savings; options include heat-reflecting film, double panes, low-E coatings, and argon gas filled windows. Many windows include more than one of these elements for superior energy retention. More than 50% of replacement windows in the U.S. are vinyl: these windows are relatively inexpensive and low-maintenance as well as frequently including energy efficient features.


Replacement windows are available in practically every size and style, from double-hung windows to picture windows, so no matter what type of windows you have in your home, a replacement is likely available. Custom sizes do tend to have higher price tags, but don’t forget that energy savings will eventually offset the cost of window replacement.

Ideally, you’ll want to replace all of the older windows in your home, but you’ll also see impressive energy savings by simply replacing damaged windows or even doors. You’d be amazed at how much warm air a cracked window or a door with crumbling weather stripping can let in or out!

Your windows and doors are more than just aesthetic elements of your home: they also protect you and your family from wind, precipitation, and storms. Quality, energy-efficient replacement windows are the best way to safeguard your family and decrease your energy costs at the same time.
