Changing your windows can be a huge project, and a lengthy process since you want to be sure you’re choosing the right ones. Especially when you’ll be looking through those windows for the next 10 plus years. With the spring weather here, now is the perfect time to consider updating and replacing your windows. Here are five reasons you’re should change your windows:
1. Reduce noise
If you live near an airport, school, train tracks or just on a busy street, noise can be at a high level in your home. Replacing your windows with dual-pane or a laminated glass can reduce that noise transmission into your home. In addition, caulking and weather stripping can only do so much to repair seals that protect you against that annoying air leakage sound.
2. Lower energy bills
With heating and cooling costs on the rise, replacing aging, drafty windows with efficient, tight-fitting ones can have a big impact on your energy bills. Spring is a great time to upgrade your windows to new energy efficient ones to help raise your comfortability and household efficiency.
3. Increase safety
Wood windows warp, aluminum corrodes, and locking hardware fails on old windows. If your windows are hard to open, get stuck in the up or down position, or won’t open in and out of place, it can pose a serious danger, especially in the event of a fire. This alone is a good reason to replace the windows in your home as soon as possible.
4. Keep the outside out
A leading cause of mold and mildew in homes is due to inefficient windows that are bringing the outside weather into your home causing leaks. Plus, aging windows and patio doors often leak air, resulting in higher energy bills. Replacement windows can help to keep the weather outside where it belongs and maintain a high comfort level within your home.
5. Give your home a fresh new look
Your home is your biggest investment and an important part of your life. With any renovation, your home gets that fresh look you are looking for and replacing your windows are no different. Improve the look of your home and the value of your investment with replacement windows.
If your windows no longer enhance the appeal of your home, shield it from the outdoor weather or filter out noise, it may be time to replace them with new ones. It’s important to remember, even the best windows won’t deliver the look, comfort, or savings you expect if they’re installed poorly.
