Owning a home is terrific. The costs of maintaining it? Not so much.
Roof repair, new HVAC units, replacing a worn water heater. All are not inexpensive.
Replacing your Troy home’s windows also can put a bit of a bite on your budget.
Yet, among most home repairs, installing energy-efficient windows can actually save you a good deal.
Energy-efficient windows are designed to keep your home – and your family within it – warm in winter and cool in summer. Which helps reduce your energy consumption and lower your bills.
How much money can you actually save with energy-efficient windows in Michigan?
How does $101-583 per year sound?
And that’s just if you install single-pane, Energy Star-certified windows. If you were to install double-pane windows, Energy Star itself says you can enjoy savings of 21-31 percent off your heating and cooling costs.
Of course, double-pane Energy Star windows cost more, but they also provide a 60-85 percent ROI. For example, if your average cost is $1,000 per double-pane window, you could increase the value of your home between $1,600 to $1,850 per window.
(Of course, homes in different regions of the country will find different levels of savings. The good news for Michigan residents? Savings are greatest in regions with extreme temperatures, such as the Midwest and Northeast.)
In fact, Remodeling Magazine in 2022 reported that a homeowner can recoup about 68 percent percent of the cost of installing energy-efficient windows when they sell their home.
In short, energy-efficient windows for your Eastpointe home are a smart investment for anyone looking to save money. With the potential to save up such a large percentage of your energy bills and recoup the cost of installation when you sell your home, there’s no reason not to make the switch.
