Does installing new upgraded windows help sell or get a higher price?

I'm installing ne double hung windows next week. Will this help sell the house I the future and how long will it take to recoup my investment.

I suggest that you invite a listing agent to see your property, the windows are but one aspect of the property, let the agent view the property and let you know what he/she think about it.  Replacement of windows it's considered part of maintenance, it is nice if you put them in, because it makes the property more energy efficient, but a buyer will fall in love with the house first and then say: Oh, there are new windows, that's great!

That depends on who is Buying your property and what type of windows.
If you are in a Historic Home many buyers wish to have windows that reflect the character of the home. In that case a wood sash window would be a good choice. If you are in a home that was built 50's forward the double pane tilt types are the most popular and double hung just makes them that much better.
In my area, good quality, new replacement windows should be worth about 200.00 a window to a buyer on an average home.
As they age they will be worth less, but you should recoup much in the way of energy savings over the time, until you sell.
