One type of phone call we love getting as a local window company is the call where a homeowner with new energy efficient windows calls us to share how much they love their new windows. Some talk about lower electric or gas bills. Others share how much more comfortable their homes are. We even hear about how much more pride they have in how their home looks. None of these come as any surprise to us, but if you’re on the fence about investing in new windows for your home, we have five reasons you should call us to schedule your free quote today.
1. Energy Savings
This is often the only reasons homeowners can think of to replace their windows. By now we all know that energy-efficient windows are designed to reduce the amount of heat that escapes your home during the winter and the amount of heat that enters your home during the summer. This means that your home will require less energy to maintain a comfortable temperature, resulting in lower energy bills.
2. Increased Comfort
Old windows sometimes don’t close properly. Other times home have settled which leads to drafts. With new custom windows, you reduce drafts and therefor heat loss/gain. Energy efficient windows can make your home more comfortable year-round. You’ll be able to maintain a consistent temperature throughout your home without having to turn the heat up to make one room comfortable enough to be in while the others are too warm. (Or air conditioner down for a cool enough space.)
3. Noise Reduction
You may never have thought about how much sound your old windows let in. If you’re on a busy street, near the airport or train tracks, new windows could improve your sleep. That’s because energy efficient windows are often designed with thicker glass and better seals, which can reduce the amount of outside noise that enters your home.
4. Improved Indoor Air Quality
We don’t talk much about indoor air quality (IAQ), however, with the high pollen counts we’re seeing this spring, it’s a reality for many. If you have family members with seasonal allergies, new windows can reduce pollen and other pollutants that get into your home through your old leaky windows.
5. Increased Resale Value
It’s no longer a seller’s market. Although we rarely recommend replacing your windows simply because you’re selling your home, if you know that you’ll be selling it in the next few years and think that’s a reason not to replace your windows, think again. Upgrading to energy efficient windows can be a smart investment in your home. It can increase your home’s resale value, making it more attractive to potential buyers when it comes time to sell. And, you can enjoy the other benefits as long as you live in your home.
