The decision to replace your windows and doors can be a daunting one. With so many options available, it can be difficult to ensure you’re making the right choice. Luckily, we’re here to help you make the best selection for your home. Here are just a few reasons why upgrading your existing windows and doors is a good thing.
Improve winter and summer comfort
Canadian winters are no laughing matter – sub-zero temperatures and accumulative snow and ice up can wreak havoc on your energy bill. Today’s Energy Star rated windows are made with cutting-edge technology that combines energy-efficient frames with high-performance glass packages. It has been proven that window replacement can improve your home’s ability to sustain a warmer interior during the frigid months.
Subsequently, Energy Star rated windows also offer very tangible benefits against the sun during the hot summer months. High performing replacement windows can reduce the level of solar heat gain into your home by as much as 50%, reducing energy costs and keeping your home nice and temperate in the scorching heat of the summer months.
Curb Appeal and Resale Value
With more home buyers paying closer attention to the condition of the exterior of a home, the energy efficiency of your home is becoming just as important as the layout. As competition rises for home seekers, changing out your windows or doors can make an immediate and stunning impact on your home’s exterior, separating your home from others on the market.
It’s Good for the Environment
Whether you believe in the greenhouse effect or not, or believe that our environment is heading towards a disastrous outcome, replacing your inefficient windows and doors has a positive effect on our earth. When you can use less energy to heat and cool your home, it means you’re tapping less into our natural resources and reducing the processing of those resources that often cause harm to our environment.
