Replacing your old windows is one of the best investments you can make in your home. The project provides several benefits to your home, your exterior, your comfort level, and your energy bills. Here are five reasons that people choose new windows.
New windows will dramatically improve the look of your home’s exterior. You have a lot of options when it comes to complementing your existing exterior as well. New vinyl, aluminum, and wood frames come in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes so you can accentuate the existing style of your home’s exterior.
Lower Energy Bills
Your wallet will benefit from new windows, too. New double-pane windows have far better insulation than older single-pane ones. Depending on the number of windows replaced and the size of the house, Energy Star estimates that a typical homeowner will save $126 to $465 a year when replacing single-pane windows with Energy Star rated double panes.
Reduced Outdoor Noise
New windows and frames are designed to be airtight, so they vastly reduce the amount of outside noise pollution coming into your home. This is especially beneficial for residents that live near busy streets or in highly-populated neighborhoods.
A lot of old windows have rotted and warped over the years, making them difficult to open. New windows are designed to open easily for years to come. This makes it easier to ventilate your home, which the EPA recommends for curbing indoor air pollution—which often four times higher than the level outside.
Less Sun-Faded Furniture
New, high-quality windows also reflect the rays of the sun on multiple spectrums, including ultraviolet radiation. Unmitigated direct sunlight introduces extra heat to your home while fading anything in its path over time.
