What You Need to Know About Windows in South Dakota
South Dakotans use more energy per month than residents of most other states, likely because the continental climate brings long, cold winters that demand ongoing home heating and relatively hot summers that call for air-conditioning.1,2 Many homeowners don’t realize how crucial insulative windows are in climates like South Dakota’s, but heat gain and loss through windows can represent up to 30% of a home’s energy use for heating and cooling.3 Unfortunately, window damage occurs more frequently here than in many areas, in part because of the severe thunderstorms that bring hail, strong winds, and excessive rains.
Replacing a single window in South Dakota will cost an average of $600, which is in line with the average price in the U.S. You could pay more or less than that amount based on a few factors, including:
- The number of windows you plan to replace
- The style and brand of the windows you want
- The frame material
- The glass type and quality
- The installer you hire
- Where in your home the window needs replacement
While window replacement seems expensive, the cost of not replacing your windows can be far higher, especially in a colder climate like South Dakota. The average South Dakotan can save up to $366 per year in heating and cooling costs just from updating old or damaged windows, so this home improvement often pays for itself over time.4 With a typical lifespan of 20-plus years, new windows should prove to be a great investment in South Dakota.
