What You Need to Know About Windows in Hawaii

Hawaii window replacement companies

Hawaii is the only state in the U.S. with a tropical climate throughout, which brings sunshine and warm weather year-round.1 With temperatures averaging in the 80-90 degrees F range for most of the year, many homeowners in Hawaii rely on air-conditioning to keep their homes cool.2 This being the case, energy-efficient windows are paramount to minimizing home energy loss especially as Hawaiians pay the highest per-kilowatt-hour rate for electricity in the nation.3

The average cost to replace a window in Hawaii is around $1,000, which is well above the national average of $600. But despite the high cost, new windows will better insulate your home, reduce your energy bills, make your home more comfortable and reduce how much you spend on air-conditioning system maintenance and replacement. Your cost to replace a single window can land anywhere between $400 and $1,600, depending mostly on the factors below:

  • The type of window
  • The window dimensions
  • Where the window is located in your home
  • The replacement company you choose
  • The brand of windows you select
  • The window’s energy efficiency

Another factor to consider is the type of replacement job you want to be done. Window installers can perform a full-frame replacement to maximize energy efficiency, although this method is the most expensive. A pocket window replacement — which involves replacing only materials inside your existing frame — is more cost-effective up-front but won’t improve your home’s energy efficiency as much and can’t be done if your existing window frames aren’t in good shape. Given that Hawaii has the highest energy prices in the U.S., most homeowners in the Aloha State choose a full-frame replacement.3
