Boost Home Efficiency with Energy-Efficient Doors & Windows

Upgrading your home is more than just an aesthetic choice; it can also involve installing energy-efficient doors and windows. It’s a smart move that can yield a significant return on investment (ROI), with some projects producing over 100% ROI upon resale. Homeowners are often surprised to learn how these upgrades can save money and deliver positive ROI.


The Impact of Doors and Windows on Energy Costs

Implementing energy-efficient doors and windows for home improvement plays a crucial role in decreasing your energy expenses by curbing the heat exchange between your home’s exterior and interior. Poorly insulated windows and doors can result in heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer. This forces HVAC systems to work harder and increases energy consumption. Improving insulation reduces heat exchange, so your HVAC system operates more efficiently and lowers your energy costs.

Energy Efficiency ROI of New Windows and Doors

One way to measure ROI on new windows and doors is in the form of lower energy bills.

The average ROI for replacement energy-efficient windows can be 20 to 30% in monthly savings. Some types of window glass can offer up to 45% more energy efficiency in winter and 56% more in summer. 

New energy-efficient doors, especially those made from fiberglass or steel, offer up to 35% of total energy bill savings. Paired with equally efficient windows, you can potentially cut down your entire energy bill by half.

The Key to Maximizing Energy Efficiency ROI

Energy-efficient doors and windows minimize heat exchange through special features or components.
