The cost of replacement windows varies. Replacement windows come in different styles, colors, and grid patterns, so the best way to determine the cost is to contact an NBP professional contractor for an in-home estimate.

When you buy an ENERGY STAR-certified window, it ensures that the window is energy efficient. ENERGY STAR windows can help you save money on heating and cooling throughout the year due to their effectiveness at keeping a consistent temperature throughout the house all year round.

ENERGY STAR considers four different parts of the window: the glass, the gas, the spacer, and the reinforcement. The combination of these factors influences the unit’s U-value and solar heat gain, both of which are drivers for meeting the new ENERGY STAR performance level.

Condensation, or “sweating” on windows, is caused by humidity or excess moisture in the air. When the water vapor comes in contact with a surface, the vapor condenses. Condensation can occur on windows during the winter if the humidity inside your home is too high.

  • Use kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans.
  • Make sure your attic, basement, and crawl spaces are well-ventilated and free from obstructions.
  • Don’t store firewood inside. Freshly cut wood can consist of up to 45% water, while well-seasoned firewood can have a 20-25% moisture content, all of which can be released in your home.
  • Open curtains and blinds to allow more air circulation around windows.
