There is no doubt that windows make a house much more attractive. They allow cool air to enter your home and allow natural sunlight heating. Did you know that they can also save you lots of money on your electricity bills?

Using less energy heating and cooling in your home turns into cost savings thus saving you the money on your utility bill. Also, you may not be aware that many utility companies offer you a significant tax credit rebate for upgrading to energy efficient windows in your home. Energy Star is paying homeowners a tax credit equal to 30% of the product cost and as much as $500 total for all energy efficiency tax credits.

So yes, replacing windows with energy efficient windows can be pricey but if you consider the long term savings. Would realize it is the best option?
