Five Tips for Choosing Replacement Windows


You’ve heard about the benefits of replacing your home’s windows with newer, more advanced windows that are made with materials that are stronger and designed to be more energy efficient. But will you really see any benefit from an investment in new windows? The short answer is “Yes!”

Here are the top six reasons why replacing your windows is a good investment in the future of your home and family.


  2. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a typical home can lose 30% or more of the energy it takes to heat and cool the home through inefficient doors and windows. That means almost one-third of the money you spend on energy bills is wasted. Sealing off this energy loss with thermally efficient replacement windows is a long-term way to reduce your monthly utility bills, and to keep energy use at a minimum. Good for the environment, good for your wallet!


  4. If you get chilly enough to put on a sweater inside your home during the winter, the culprit may be drafty windows. Do you ever notice your drapes moving gently in the breeze, even though your windows are closed? That is cold air seeping in through your window glass and frame. Do your windows get coated with condensation or fog up? That’s chilly air transferring in through the glass. You won’t have to put up with these uncomfortable conditions once you install energy efficient replacement windows.

  6. New windows offer great options in frame styles and materials that can greatly improve the aesthetic value of your home both inside and out. Most replacement windows also offer more expansive glass areas for a bigger and better view of the world.


    2. Modern windows are much easier to operate than the old wood-frame or aluminum windows that rattled all winter and got stuck in the summer’s humidity. Advanced materials ensure smooth operation for years and years.

  3. Vinyl, fiberglass or composite frame windows do not need to be scraped and painted every few years. They retain their great looks with just a simple wipe down. Plus, many new windows feature easy-to-use tilt-in frames that make cleaning a snap.


  5. Installing quality windows is consistently ranked among the best home improvement values in terms of return on investment. New windows make your home more attractive and appealing.

Replacement windows come in a variety of styles, materials and shapes. So many in fact that making a choice can be difficult, especially with such broad range of housing styles. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Maintenance – Consider the exterior and interior of your home when choosing your replacement windows. Wood framed window and door replacements require periodic painting or staining. Vinyl framed windows won’t.
  • Shape – Examine the shape of your existing windows and decide if you want to change them or duplicate them. Replacement windows can be square, rectangular, bow, bay or decorative.
  • Energy Efficiency – Energy efficient replacement windows and doors can reduce the average homeowner’s heating and cooling costs by 30% or more. Look for Energy Star rated replacement windows and NFRC certification.
  • Window Type – Think about your needs and wants. Do you want the window to open? Do you want more ventilation? Where do you want your screens – inside or out? Do you want them to tilt for easy cleaning? Many types of replacement windows are available including double hung, single hung, sliders, casements, awning, bay and bow.
  • Installation – Choose the replacement window contractor wisely when making the purchase decision. Ask for references. Visit the showroom. View completed installations. Inquire about warranties.

These five tips will get you started. But the most important tip of all is to ask your neighbors if they can recommend a window replacement company. Most homeowners will willingly share the name of a good replacement window contractor – and they will just as willingly share the name of a poor one!
