The fast answer is yes.

Last winter, we decided it was time to replace some windows in our home. We were trying to put it off because it is a big-ticket item. We only replaced the windows on the front of the house because that is the side that gets the sun and also gets pelted with rain, snow and wind.

Our house was built in 1975 and is all brick and had original windows.

The results were dramatic. The first thing we noticed was the noise, or lack of noise. The house was more sealed and much quieter and shielded from outside noise.

Our gas and electric bill its a ton lower. We've probably saved 30-40 percent. The house stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. All in all, a worth it investment.

As part of Joy FM’s $100,000 Home Makeover,  you could win $10,000 in upgrades for new windows and doors from Modern Windows and Doors. You've got until Wednesday, July 10 to enter!
