Upgrading your home is more than just an aesthetic choice, it can also be energy efficient and It’s a smart move that can yield a significant return on investment (ROI), with some projects yielding over 100% ROI upon resale. Homeowners are often surprised to learn how upgrading their doors and replacing their windows can save money and deliver positive ROI.
The Impact of Doors and Windows on Energy Costs
Windows and doors directly impact your energy costs by allowing heat exchange between the inside and outside. 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.
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.
