- Replacement Windows - Replacing your homes windows is hands down one of the best ways to cut your energy costs. Do and inspection of your homes windows. Are they drafty? When you put your hand on the glass, how cold is it? Are they single pane or double pane? Do your windows have an energy star rating? All of these are very important questions that have a direct effect on your homes energy efficiency.
