Purchasing tips from Energy Star | Seattle Window Replacement

1.    Determine your ENERGY STAR Climate Zone.

2.    Find a retailer or manufacturer. Find a manufacturer or retailer of ENERGY STAR qualified windows, doors, or skylights.

3.    Look for the ENERGY STAR label for your climate zone. All ENERGY STAR qualified products must display the ENERGY STAR label. Check the label to make sure the product you are considering qualifies in your area. 

4.    Ask for ENERGY STAR when ordering. When you’re ordering in a showroom, make sure to ask for a product that qualifies for ENERGY STAR in your climate zone. You can choose ENERGY STAR qualified windows in a variety of framing materials to suit your needs.

5.    Get a deal. In addition to the long-term energy savings you’ll enjoy, take advantage of financial incentives that lower your initial investment:

o    Many utilities provide financial incentives for purchasing ENERGY STAR qualified windows, doors, and skylights. Look for local rebates and other promotions in your area.

o    Claim federal tax credits for installing ENERGY STAR qualified windows, doors or skylights or making certain other energy efficiency improvements to your home.

o    Keep in mind that the cost of complete window replacement for the average home is $7,500-$10,000.* When you’re interviewing contractors, ask them to break down the price quote by labor and materials. ENERGY STAR qualified windows may cost more than non-qualified products, but the labor involved should be comparable for both.

* Based on Consumer Checkbook’s (June 2008) reported average product and installation cost for standard size, double-pane, vinyl, double-hung replacement windows with low-E, grids, and argon fill.
