Spring is remodeling season, and this year homeowners are looking for home improvement projects that can help them save money as well as improve the overall performance of their house.

During a tough economy, experts say consumers on tight budgets are wise to focus their home renovation efforts on affordable projects that make lasting economic impacts. For example, here are two money-saving ideas that are easy to undertake and won't break the bank, courtesy of JELD-WEN Windows and Doors and Danny Lipford, host of the nationally syndicated television show "Today's Homeowner with Danny Lipford":

1. Go low-flow

Inexpensive and a simple do-it-yourself project, installing low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators can reduce consumption by 50 percent and save on water heating costs as well.

Price range: $12 - $200 per unit

2. Shut out the cold

Upgrading old and drafty windows can be a big money saver -- an average savings of up to $450 per year on energy costs according to the U.S. Department of Energy. It can also help come tax time. Homeowners can receive federal tax credits of up to $1,500 for installing qualified energy efficient windows by the end of 2010.

Price range: Starting around $165 per unit for vinyl windows with insulated Low-E glass
