In love with summer sales? So are we.
In fact, summer specials bring the biggest discounts on replacement windows you’ll find all year. And we’re happy to report that the savings are rolling in, with Andersen Windows and Doors launching their annual Summer Window Sale. We’ve checked it out, and it’s looking to be a killer deal. Here’s what you need to know.
Summer Window Sale
Andersen is now offering $75 off per window, or four months of interest-free financing on your installation. Qualifying window purchases must be made by July 9, 2011.

If your home was too cold last winter, or you’re hoping to save on air conditioning this summer, window replacement is the way to go.
Why is Now the Best Time to Replace Your Windows?
In addition to the savings mentioned above, booking a replacement this summer qualifies you for federal tax credits on energy-saving windows. Tax credits bring a 10% return (with limitations) on the price of your window products. This makes a costly window replacement job affordable for more homeowners than ever. Just remember to choose windows certified by Energy Star.
Need another reason to replace? How about awesome savings on energy bills? Amounts vary from one home to the next, but most of our readers report a 15-20% savings on utilities after replacing older windows. The more efficient your home, the lower your energy bills will be.
Best of all, window replacement adds lasting value to your home. Energy-saving home improvements are a hot selling point for buyers right now, and at the top of the chart are double- or triple-pane windows. Their costs can be recouped when it comes time to sell.
