Increase Energy Efficiency & Curb Appeal With New Residential Windows
Windows are the eyes of the home. They open up our indoor spaces to the outdoors and beautiful views. They are also responsible for allowing in fresh air and daylighting.
Yet as your home ages, so do your windows. Over time, residential windows can become less airtight and more difficult to operate. In this situation, the best solution is to upgrade your windows with better, more energy-efficient units. Luckily, today’s windows are a vast improvement over the versions that may have been installed in your home 20 years ago.
Why Upgrade Your Windows?
New windows are a major investment, so most homeowners will put off paying for the job unless it’s absolutely necessary – i.e. something has caused a window to shatter. Yet if your home’s windows are old, there are many reasons why investing in window replacement might be worth the money.
- Increased energy efficiency: Manufacturers keep advancing the energy efficiency and performance of windows, meaning you could save hundreds of dollars per year on energy costs.
- Reduced heat transfer: Modern windows come with low-emissivity (Low-E) glass that reflects rays from the sun. This allows light to come into your home but not the associated heat. You can eliminate the need to cover up your windows with treatments to block the sun.
- Added property value: New windows have a high return on investment. According to studies, you may be able to recoup more than 70% of your investment if you decide to sell your home.
