What You Need to Know About Windows in North Dakota
Bordering Canada, North Dakota is one of the northernmost states in the country and tends to have cold winters that can bring below-freezing temperatures for more than half the year.1 North Dakotans spend a lot of energy keeping their homes warm but less on cooling in the relatively temperate summer months.
Since over a quarter of a home’s energy used for heating and cooling is represented by heat gain or loss through windows, replacing windows is a great way to boost your home’s energy efficiency in North Dakota.2 In addition to lower energy bills, upgrading your windows will also provide these benefits:
- Increased home value
- Reduced reliance on fossil fuels
- Improved comfort in your living areas
- Potential for tax benefits for energy efficiency upgrades
- Improved curb appeal
You can expect to pay around $600 to replace a single window in North Dakota, which means replacing all of your windows — your best chance of maximizing home energy efficiency — can cost several thousand dollars. Window replacement in North Dakota is expected to save you up to $366 per year on your home heating and cooling costs according to Energy Star, which means over your windows’ 20-plus-year lifespan, you’ll very likely see returns above what your new windows cost.3 This is especially true in North Dakota because homeowners here use more energy than most U.S. residents each month.4
Window prices fluctuate based on the frame material you choose, the type of glass, the size of the window, where in your home the window is located, how many windows you’re replacing, and more. To keep costs down, you can opt to keep your existing frames and carry out a pocket replacement, although this is less beneficial than a full-frame replacement in terms of energy efficiency and will only be possible if your existing window frames are in good shape.
