“Stop throwing money out your old windows,” warn some manufacturers’ commercials. While new windows can reduce your energy bill, don’t expect to recoup your investment anytime soon.
Replacement windows can save you between 10 and 25 percent per year on heating and cooling if you have single-paned windows. But they cost between $7,000 and $20,000 for an average house. Custom sizes can add about 15 percent.
So new windows probably won’t save enough energy for you to pocket any net savings for 20 years or more. But they can make your home more comfortable, quiet, and attractive and easy to sell if you plan to move.
Consumereports.org tested 19 replacement windows for air and water leakage, durability, and convenience, with the aid of an outside lab. Months of testing found significant differences between replacement window brands and types, plus a spot-reducing coating that wasn’t a clear winner .
Vinyl is inexpensive and convenient. It makes up about half of the replacement window market mostly because it’s relatively inexpensive and maintenance-free. But vinyl replacement windows tend to leak air a bit more in cold climates. Vinyl also doesn’t have the same visual appeal as wood, and it can’t be painted or stained. So it might not be appropriate for older homes.
