What You Need to Know About Windows in Wyoming
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates that about 21% of the energy consumed in Wyoming is wasted because of poor energy efficiency in homes.1 A significant portion of that wasted energy is due to heat loss and gain through windows, which, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, can account for up to 30% of the energy used for heating and cooling homes.2 In an area like Wyoming, where below-freezing temperatures can persist for about half the year, optimizing your windows’ efficiency is crucial.3
You’ll very likely spend around $600 to replace just one window in Wyoming, so replacing all of the windows in your home can be an expensive endeavor. However, Energy Star estimates that energy-efficient windows can save up to $366 annually on heating and cooling costs in Wyoming and reduce your carbon footprint by up to 12%.4 Some additional benefits of upgrading your windows are:
- Improved comfort in your home
- Improved curb appeal
- Increased property value
- Reduced consumption of fossil fuels
- Smaller contribution to global warming and pollution
You can save some money on window replacement up-front by choosing more affordable materials — like vinyl over fiberglass and double-pane glass over triple-pane glass — although this will also provide slightly fewer energy efficiency benefits. You can also opt for a pocket replacement, which lets you keep your existing frames and just replace the functional part of the window. Again, this is less beneficial from an efficiency standpoint but can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a whole-home window replacement project.
