Window replacement is not something many homeowners realize they have to do. While window manufacturers say that it’s best to replace your windows every 10-15 years, that is not a written rule and should be assessed on a case-by-case basis. The best windows should have efficient insulation, increase the airflow, and make your home look great. Not all windows are created the same, so it’s important to determine your needs before choosing replacement windows.
Protect Your Furniture
If you notice that you’re furniture, carpets, or curtains begin to fade, your windows are not working efficiently to protect your property. Consider switching to windows with low-emissivity coatings, which aid in reflecting the sun’s rays away from your home, keeping your belongings intact.
Save On Energy Bills
Energy-efficient windows do not require as much energy as other windows and work to keep the temperature of your home comfortable for you and your family. This allows you to save on your energy bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Increases The Value Of Your Home
Windows are one of the most prominent features of your home. If they are worn out, then your house will too, which will deter potential buyers when you are ready to sell. Choosing the right style, material and colour for your home not only adds visual interest to your home, but also makes it more efficient for your family. Windows come in a wide range of sizes and shapes, and will bring in more sunshine into your home, making it more attractive to potential buyers.
Reduce the Potential of Mold
Old windows run the risk of letting water leak into your home, which will result in the development of mold and mildew inside of your home. This will affect you and your family’s health, and will affect the resale of your home long-term. Upgrading to energy-efficient windows that are moisture and condensation-resistant will ensure that you and your family are safe.
Your home should keep your family safe, and when replacing windows, you should consider how technology has developed to create windows that work to keep your family safe from intruders. Modern glass windows have been designed to break into small pieces, instead of shattering and can take up to 20 hits with a baseball bat before significant damage begins to appear.
Replacing your windows can improve your home’s comfort factor. New windows will bring in more sunlight and can also help with noise reduction, especially if your house sits on a busy street.
