Replacing your home’s windows may seem like a big and costly undertaking. However, the benefits far outweigh any drawback. Here are our top reasons you should replace your windows.
1. Decreased Utility Costs
Many older homes have the original windows built with single-pane glass. Replacing aging and drafty windows with tight-fitting and energy efficient windows can significantly reduce energy bills. New windows offer heat reflecting low-E coatings and argon filled glass. Homeowners can expect to save 10-25% each year on heating and cooling costs.
2. Environmental Impacts.
Not only do energy efficient windows reduce your energy bills, but they also reduce your home’s carbon footprint. It pays to go green!
3. Increased Curb Appeal
New windows can really enhance your home’s curb appeal. There are a wide variety of style options available that are aesthetically pleasing and will complement your home’s architectural style.
4. Fade Protection
The sun’s ultraviolet rays are powerful and cause furniture, artwork, carpet and finishes to fade. Newer windows are constructed with glass to block ultraviolet rays to prevent fading from the sun.
5. Reduce Noise
Replacing your single-pane windows with dual pane or laminated glass will reduce the amount of outside noise you can hear inside your home.
6. Eliminate Storm Windows
No more dealing with storm windows! Enough said.
7. Clean Windows With Ease
The design of new windows make it incredibly easier & safer to clean.
8. Increase Safety
Speaking of safety, having windows that are easy to open and close is important, especially in the event of a fire.
9. Reduce Water & Air Leaks
Older windows are more susceptible to issues caused by rain and other weather-related elements. Leaking windows can lead to water damage, mold and mildew.
10. Less Maintenance
Replacing your old windows can reduce maintenance and the costs involved in doing so (ie: painting).
