Windows installed in the early 1980's or before can't be made energy efficient and should be replaced when they become dysfunctional. But there's a strong advantage to refurbishing windows made since then.
Compared to installing new windows, refurbished windows cost over 70% less; the energy efficiency gains are similar; the projects produce much less waste; and the completion time is much faster. Refurbished windows can be restored to optimal functionality.
