Historic Windows and Energy Efficiency

Record #:
An argument is made that older, historic windows are more energy efficient than replacing them with new ones that tout being environmentally friendly. Before replacing historic windows, one should look at factors such as energy already expended to create and install the window, reusability or recyclability of the windows, and quality of the new windows over the historic ones. By repairing historic windows, homeowners can save money and improve energy efficiency while still maintaining the historic character and value.
