What are the Real Costs of New Replacement Windows vs. My Old BiltBest Units?
After spending about $17,000 - $35,000 dollars on properly installed, high-quality replacement windows ( the average home has between 24 and 30 windows, replaced at an average of $ 500.00 - $1,200 each ), a typical household might save about $60 a month on heating or cooling bills. However, if a house is actively heated or cooled for an average of six months a year, the savings amounts to only $320 a year. At this rate, it would take 40-50 years to even begin to recoup in energy savings the amount spent on the new windows. (Note: These figures assume that the windows are paid in cash or with zero percent financing. If the amount of interest paid on the total cost of the window replacement project is added, the payback period will be even longer.) By following some no- and/or low-cost methods to improve your home's energy efficiency, you can easily save that same $50 a month on your heating bills without an outlay of thousands of dollars.
