What You Need to Know About Windows in Ohio

Ohio window replacement companies

Ohio falls into several climate zones but experiences moderately hot summers and cold winters. Average temperatures typically hover at or below freezing for several months and remain below 60 degrees F for more than half of the year,1 making Ohio residents heavily dependent on heating systems for comfortable home environments. This being the case, it’s important for Ohioans to maintain the condition of their windows, which can lose and gain enough heat to represent up to 30% of the home’s energy used for heating and cooling.2 In some areas, lake-effect snowfall and other extreme weather events like tornadoes can put windows at risk of damage, which makes them more prone to energy loss.3

Replacing your windows can be costly, especially since a single-window replacement totals around $550 in Ohio. Your price per window will vary based on these factors:

  • The number of windows you’re replacing at once
  • The type of window you’re installing
  • The window size
  • The installer and window brand you select
  • Which story of your home your window is located on
  • The frame and glass materials and quality

In an area like Ohio, where the weather can be extreme, it’s typically best to choose highly efficient window materials like fiberglass frames and double-pane or triple-pane glass. These materials can drive up your price of replacement but tend to provide better insulation from the cold winters. Since the cost of replacing windows is quite high, some homeowners choose to keep their existing frames and just pay for a pocket replacement. This won’t provide the same bump in-home energy efficiency that a full-frame replacement typically would, but it’s significantly less expensive.
