Do You Need New Windows?
When was the last time you updated your windows? While we don’t usually think about replacing something that’s not visually broken, there are many benefits of replacing and upgrading your current windows. Not only are they aesthetically more appealing, but they can save you money in the long run. Here’s why you should consider getting rid of those old windows and replacing them with new ones:
They will reduce energy costs. Replacing windows can seem expensive at first, but over time they will significantly reduce your energy bills. Newer windows contain insulation to keep extreme weather out and your heating and cooling inside. If you live somewhere that is sunny, you can opt for windows that reflect solar waves. These keep the sun’s heat from getting inside, which reduce cooling costs. Simply replacing your windows can lessen the demand on your HVAC systems by 25%.
They will improve the quality of life. The basic function of windows is that they allow you to see the outside world from the comfort of you home. Newer windows could improve your view, allow more natural light to filter in, and reduce outside noise. These benefits allow you to enjoy the comfort and ambiance of your home.
They will increase the value of your home. If you’re thinking about potentially selling your home, new windows could increase the sale price when it’s time to list. Old windows easily date a house while new windows are a sign of a recently updated and well cared for home. Since curb appeal can affect the sale price of you home, replacing your windows could be a big return on investment.
