Only 10 to 12 percent of heat loss in a house is through the windows.
Most is lost through the roof, walls, and fireplaces.

It takes 126 times the energy to  manufacture an aluminum window
as it does to repair an existing wood windowz(1).

30 percent of “lifetime warranty” windows are replaced within 10 years.(2)

Consider what window upgrades will bring you the best value for your money?

Wooden parts of historic windows
can be replaced.

 Vinyl and aluminum cannot.
