Many homeowners don't think about window replacement until their windows are clearly inefficient. However, there are excellent reasons to consider installing new windows before you begin to feel a draft or notice fog between the panes.
Why You Should Invest in Replacement Windows
1. Improved Curb Appeal
If you’re considering selling your home, or even if you aren't and just want to give it a facelift, window replacement is an easy way to boost curb appeal. Changing the style, color, or materials of your windows can transform your home’s appearance.
2. Improved Efficiency
Modern windows are more energy-efficient than ever before, and are more capable of keeping extreme weather outside. By some estimates, energy-efficient windows can lower your heating and cooling costs by 25% or more, thanks to special coatings and double or triple pane designs.
Even if you have older double-paned windows, the seals may be weak or broken, meaning they aren’t as efficient as they should be.
3. Reduced Noise
New windows don’t just provide better insulation against temperature extremes. They also help reduce noise from the outdoors. If you live on a busy street, investing in window replacement can help make your home quieter and more pleasant.
4. Easier Maintenance
Many new window styles are designed to be easily cleaned and maintained, saving you time and effort. Opting for windows with blinds, grilles, or shades in between the glass panes can make cleaning much easier, and reduce the amount of dust and allergens in your home.
5. Protect Your Furnishings
Over time, sunlight can cause your furniture, carpets, curtains, and other household items to fade. New windows are treated with UV coatings that block the sun’s most harmful rays, preserving your home furnishings. The extra protection also helps keep excessive heat out, ensuring your home is cool and comfortable.
