Energy-efficient windows may seem expensive at first, but they are worth it. They can save you money if you get the job done right.  When you choose Windows and Doors by The Men With Tools, we give you the best possible value for your investment. Let’s discuss the cost of not having energy-efficient windows and the benefits you enjoy when you finally switch. 

Will Thermally Efficient Windows Really Make a Difference?


Cheap windows cost you money over time. They do not have the high-quality insulation or materials needed to prevent air leakage and cold drafts. If you are wondering just how much of a difference replacing your windows can make, check out our energy savings calculator. We can all agree that saving money is good. But when it comes to energy efficiency, you may be curious if the upfront cost of installing efficient windows will actually give you your money’s worth in the long run.


The answer is yes. If you purchase high-quality windows that meet energy star requirements, your new windows could pay for themselves in as little as 3-5 years. They can reduce your heating and cooling bills by as much as 50 percent. The difference between an energy star window and a cheaper alternative is significant enough to earn them a noticeable edge in home value when it comes time to sell your home and buy another one! 


Plus, because they comprise high-quality materials like vinyl instead of wood or aluminum, these windows are also easier to maintain over time — no need for repainting every few years! Contact us for a quote. We can even help you with financing!

How Much Do Energy-Efficient Windows Cost?


When you consider the long-term impact of energy-saving windows on your home, they are not as expensive as they seem. They will increase the value of your home, cut your monthly expenses, and may even help you qualify for tax credits. So, when budgeting for your replacement project, weigh the cost over time and not just the initial price. The initial cost of energy-efficient windows isn’t necessarily cheap. But the long-term benefits are significant, including lower electric bills and resale value.


Windows are a crucial part of the overall energy efficiency of your home. Good windows can help keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer, by reducing heat loss or gain through the window. 


Energy-efficient windows provide significant advantages over regular ones: they save money on heating bills during cold months and lower cooling costs during hot summers. So, despite the high initial sticker price, they offer more value than their seemingly more affordable counterparts.
