Combat rising energy costs with better windows

Combat rising energy costs with better windows

(NAPS)-You may be able to cut your energy costs with the help of high-performance windows.
The average cost of energy used to heat and cool homes rose more than 33 percent in the last decade, according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
Fortunately, homeowners can find relief today by upgrading their windows. ENERGY STAR-rated windows are a good starting point. They can currently save homeowners an average of $320 annually when replacing single-pane windows.
High-performance windows offer even greater energy savings potential-up to 40 percent more than minimum ENERGY STAR windows. To maximize savings, look for high-performance models labeled as Envirosealed Windows and Doors with Duralite. These windows feature nonmetal spacers that provide the best insulation and greatest effect on energy bills.
The savings don't stop there. This year, homeowners can save up to $200 on their taxes by installing qualified windows.
