Windows or new HVAC

We don’t really need to replace either.

My husband and I had a bunch of wedding money come in and we don’t know what to use it for. I am kind of leaning towards changing the windows in our house. I hate that the glass is fogged and gross looking. I feel the windows allow air to leak in and that affects our HVAC system and energy bills. The windows look old and take away from the house too. I also can’t even open them to let in a fresh breeze and help our indoor air quality. My husband is pushing a new HVAC system though. The HVAC unit is around 20 years old and is a central method. The indoor unit takes up so much space in the hallway closet. My husband wants a ductless mini split in every room of the house with a thermostat. We could have zone control and free up that space in the house. Having set temperature zones would be cool. I could have AC in the kitchen while I cook and my husband could enjoy heating in the living room. The two of us don’t even share a room because we have vastly different temperature needs. I know we would enjoy our own unit and thermostat. Both the windows and current HVAC machine work though. We don’t really need to replace either. We just want to. Which one is the priority though? Either upgrade will lower our energy bills. The decor of our house will change quite a bit with the upgrade too. The costs are similar as well.
