What You Need to Know About Windows in New Mexico
New Mexico has a somewhat temperate climate for a state located in the southern part of the U.S., but average temperatures throughout the year still range from lows below freezing and highs reaching up to around 100 degrees F.1 In the summer and winter, homeowners in the Land of Enchantment call on air-conditioning and heating systems to maintain comfortable living spaces. It’s during these more extreme seasons that home windows play a major role in how much energy is lost to the outside. Energy Star estimates that heat gain and loss through windows account for between 25 and 30% of a home’s heating and cooling energy use.2
Replacing existing windows with energy-efficient ones can make your New Mexico home far more efficient. In fact, energy efficiency upgrades like new windows can provide a 21% boost to home efficiency.3
Window installation in New Mexico will generally cost around $700 per window. As you can imagine, the cost of multiple window replacements can add up quickly, but replacing all of your windows at once will do the most for your home’s efficiency. Each window could cost anywhere between $300 and $1,300, depending on the following factors:
- Frame material
- Glass quality and layers
- Glass treatments and coatings
- Window size
- The style of the window
- How many windows you’re replacing
- The installer and brand you choose
You can save some money by opting for a pocket window replacement, which lets you retain your existing frames. This provides less of a bump in-home energy efficiency than a full-frame replacement, but it can make replacing your windows far more affordable. However, your existing window frames need to be in good shape to do pocket replacements.
