The day has come. It’s time for new windows, so now you must decide what kind of home window replacement option to pursue.

So here’s our guide on how to make home window replacement affordable.
Calculate your return on investment (ROI).
When making big decisions that will affect your home, planning for the future is key. So don’t dismiss how much home upgrades increase the value of your home once it goes on the market. According to the 2016 “Cost vs. Value Report” released by Remodeling magazine, homeowners recouped nearly 75% of total job costs from home window replacement upon selling their homes. When you take into account that Renewal by Andersen replacement windows are one of the best options on the market, that 75% recoup speaks volumes.
Factor in energy savings when buying sustainable windows.
Once you replace your home windows with Renewal by Andersen window technology, you will typically see a decrease in your energy and utility bills. Homes earning the ENERGY STAR® label use on average 15-30% less energy than typical new homes, and even more when compared to most resale homes on the market today, which is a key way to make home window replacement affordable. By buying our sustainable home windows and doors, you can save hundreds of dollars, ensuring that you’re investing in the most energy efficient windows for your house that will bring you the biggest returns.
Take advantage of financing options.
Banks love to see homeowners make improvements that increase the value of the home for which they’ve extended a mortgage. You’d be surprised to find out how easy obtaining financing for home improvement projects—including window replacement—can be because you are increasing the value of the bank’s investment. These loans are also flexible, come with great terms and can be typically treated like a checking account. Not to mention the energy efficient PACE Financing options available to you via the HERO Program as well as home improvement rebates provided by Energy Upgrade California. And when it comes to Renewal by Andersen, we offer deferred payment options, low minimum monthly payments, no upfront fees and lines of credit up to $55,000 (subject to credit approval).
Consider your home’s lower HVAC costs.
High-performance windows not only come with monthly energy savings on heating and cooling bills, but they reduce peak heating and cooling loads (loads refer to the max expenditure for heating or cooling your home at one time, and determine the size of the furnace, heat pump, air conditioner, and fans that your home will need.) So if you’re able to reduce peak loads by installing high-quality, energy-efficient windows, you most likely will be able to install a smaller and more affordable heating or cooling system once it needs replacing.
