Keeping your home updated is no easy task and it’s easy to forget about some very important things, especially your windows! Not all windows are created equal and it turns out, having outdated windows on your home could be costing you more than you realize. These are 5 reasons why it might be time for you to replace your old windows!
Lower Utility Bills
Windows help maintain the temperature within your home. Newer window models are energy efficient, which means they are both good for the environment and good for your wallet. Outdated windows allow a draft of cold air to come in during the harsh winter months and air-conditioned air to escape during the summer. This causes your furnace and AC to run more, creating higher utility bills. By updating your windows you’ll be able to enjoy lower bills for years to come. And by working with a licensed contractor, you can ensure that windows are not misaligned when installed. Even the smallest misalignments can undo the good of getting energy-efficient dual-paned windows.
Newer windows provide added protection against potential intruders because they’re harder to break into. With improved locking mechanisms and laminated glass that doesn’t easily shatter, new windows are essential to keeping your home safe when your family is present or away on vacation. With some security systems on the market, you can even attach sensors to newer windows to detect break-in attempts.
Just like new windows provide better insulation from temperatures, they also offer insulation to reduce noise. If you live in a populated area or your house sits close to a busy road, new windows will make a big impact on the amount of noise you hear within the home. Everyone has experienced the annoyance of being woken up by outdoor construction, animals, or other noises, eliminate this issue with thicker windows.
Homeowners work hard to give their home a great curb appeal, but have you updated your windows? Aside from the practical benefits of new windows, they are also visually appealing. And they are completely customizable. Choose styles and designs that fit your aesthetic vision.
Newer windows often come equipped with easy-clean features that make maintenance a breeze. Talk to your contractor about the durability and construction of different windows to find the best fit for your desired maintenance level. If you properly maintain your windows, they’ll last for a long time and continue to look beautiful. Windows for your home are an investment that adds to property value and can be enjoyed throughout your time living in your home.
