Every home needs renovations from time to time. Whether it’s as simple as repainting a room or as invasive as replacing all the drywall, you’ll probably do a fair share of work on your house. But there’s one potential renovation that gets less attention from home decor enthusiasts: new windows.

Replacing every window in your house may sound like a big deal, but with a professional contractor on the job, you’ll have your new windows installed quickly with minimal difficulty to you. Better yet, a professional installation can actually save you money in the long run! It all depends on the extent of your project and the types of new windows you choose. Let’s take a closer look at how professional window replacement can help your wallet.

How Many Windows Need Replacing?

It may seem less expensive to only replace a few windows rather than every single window in your house. It’s true that you’ll spend less on windows in the short term. However, every old and potentially damaged window you leave in place can cause your energy bill to rise. You’ll likely find yourself spending more money in the long term keeping your house cool. It’s generally far more efficient to replace every window in your home than to only replace a couple and hope for the best. (Custom Windows offers an excellent financing option to make your window makeover affordable as well.)

You can, of course, replace only some of the windows for a more budget-friendly approach in the short term, however, this should be thought of as an interim step. Installing new high-efficiency windows in part of the home with old inefficient ones in other areas means that some rooms will be colder or warmer than the others. This adds strain to your air conditioning systems and can shorten their effective life. So for the best efficiency, utility savings, and reduced strain on your HVAC systems, replacing every window is by far the best choice.

Pro Tip: When you’re swapping out your old windows for more energy-efficient ones, don’t forget to replace any sliding glass doors too!

Choosing Energy-Efficient Windows

Speaking of efficiency, brand new windows won’t save you much money long-term unless they’re specially designed for climate control. Windows certified by Energy Star have a proven track record of reducing the amount of energy (and money!) required to power a home’s AC or heating units, making them an excellent choice for energy-conscious homeowners. And every window sold by Custom Windows is Energy Star-approved! The certification looks at every aspect of a window to assign it a rating. From the glass to the framing materials and any Low-E coatings on the window, every part factors into the equation and tells you how much this particular window will help you.
