We all know that few (if any) home improvements provide 100% return on investment (ROI). However, the ROI of replacement windows is very good compared to other things. In fact, according to Remodeling’s 2020 Cost Vs. Value Report, the average ROI of replacement windows in Indianapolis is nearly 85%! If that alone doesn’t inspire you to call a replacement window company, here are some other reasons you may want to stop putting off scheduling a free estimate.
Savings on Heating & Cooling
Do you realize that one of the biggest culprits for energy loss in the average home are windows? Old, single pane windows can be responsible for as much as 40% of the energy loss in your home. Let’s assume you’re replacing your old single pane windows with new windows that are ENERGY STAR® rated for Indianapolis with double pane windows and sliding doors. Do you realize that the savings per year is as much as $583 per year? That’s nearly $50 per month.
Do you have rooms in your home that are never comfortable because they don’t get cool in the summer or warm in the winter? Is it because there are a lot of windows in the room? If so, you’ll find that those rooms now feel more like the rest of the home. If your existing windows are drafty, you’ll no longer feel the drafts through the windows as today’s vinyl replacement windows seal more tightly than ever before.
Reduced UV Damage
Older windows don’t protect against UV light. Today’s new windows with Low-E glass keep out more of the harmful UV rays that lead to fading of furnishings and other valuables inside your home. You’ll save on replacing carpet, furniture and even refinishing your floors. Not to mention the Low-E glass adds to the window’s energy efficiency year-round.
Less Stress on your HVAC System
Every time your HVAC system cycles on and off, you’re taking time off its life. When you have window that keep your home more comfortable and reduce heat and air loss in the home, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard so it lasts longer. Adding a few more years to your HVAC system is a big savings!
