Texas is a huge state that takes in a wide variety of climate zones, from humid subtropical to hot semi-arid. Whether the conditions are dry or humid, Texas is well known for its long stretches of widespread, intense heat, making air-conditioning a must for most Texans.1 Texas ranks sixth in the nation in terms of average monthly energy consumption at 1,132 kilowatt-hours per month, a large part of which is attributed to air-conditioning usage.2 Unfortunately, a lot of a Texas home’s energy can be lost through its windows heat gain or loss through windows can be responsible for up to 30% of a home’s energy use for heating and cooling, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.3

Replacing your windows with energy-efficient options is a great way to restore your home’s efficiency, save on energy bills, reduce your contribution to global warming and maintain a more comfortable living space for you and your family. You can expect to pay an average of $650 per window you replace in Texas, although the factors below can bring your per-window total down to $200 or up to several thousand dollars:

  • The number of windows you’re replacing
  • The style, size, and brand of windows you buy
  • The installer you hire for the job
  • The location of the window and any obstructions at the work site
  • The frame and glass material

Window replacement is called for more often in Texas than in many other areas because the extreme weather — including severe thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes — can put added strain on windows.4 Some homeowners opt for a less-than-total replacement called a pocket replacement. This won’t boost home energy efficiency as much as a full-frame replacement, but it will cost you much less per window. However, to do pocket replacement your existing window frames must be in good condition.
