Each and every year, window products get better. They are becoming more beautiful, sleek and efficient, allowing for homeowners to reap the benefits. Some homes that are over 50 years old still have some of the same windows and homeowners don’t really understand what they get from upgrading. To help you better understand what you can get with new windows we have put together some of the main benefits of installation new replacement windows.
Benefits From Replacing Home Windows:
Energy Bill Savings: One of the biggest problems with older windows is that they aren’t seal tight. Air easily passes through them making it difficult for your HVAC system to keep a comfortable temperature during the window & summer. New replacement windows could lower your energy bill and in return save you money.
Keep Comfortable Temperature: With your heating and cooling systems not working as hard as they have to, it is much easier to keep a comfortable temperature. That means you can stay more cool during the summer and warmer during those frigid winter days.
Curb Appeal: Lets be honest, you’ll feel better each and every time you drive up to your house. Newly-installed windows increase the appearance of your home and it will make you more proud and confident to invite friends and family over.
Reduced Furniture Fading: Have you had furniture that’s in the direct sunlight through a window? If so, check it out as it most likely has faded over time. New windows can minimize the UV radiation and helps protect the fabric materials inside your home.
Home Value: With all the benefits you are receiving from installing replacement windows, a homeowner purchasing your home will also recognize this. If you plan on selling your home in the next few coming years, this will only increase your homes value.
Peach & Quiet: If you are in a noisy area, you’ll realize that new replacement windows have the ability to greatly decrease noise. Talk to your window contractor and they can recommend various window products to maximize the sound reduction capabilities.
Use: So many old windows are just extremely difficult to use. They creak, and take much more extra effort to open then what they should. Some windows on homes are simply sealed shut and never open. New windows are often much easier to open and close.
Less Required Maintenance: Older windows need to be cleaned and maintenance much more often then new windows. New windows have the ability to repel water keeping them looking fresh for longer. As well, double hung windows makes it easy to clean your windows both on the inside and out.
