Replacement Windows

Q:

I replaced 3 windows in one room with the energy-credit approved windows at the end of 2010. My electric bill increased $20 in one month. Since the cap on the credit for windows in $200 and I have already used $133 and I haven't seen any savings, there doesn't seem to be much incentive to replace the rest of the windows in my house. The local electric company is pushing for a rate increase, so it seems like the only way I'm going to beat them is to invest in something really expensive like solar panels.

I doubt the window replacement increased the electric bill.  More likely another change in use, or energy drain on the house.

Haveyou considered an home energy audit?  That would help pindown the places you are wasting energy and help to prioritize repairs and improvements.
