Many times replacement windows can go on the back burner when it comes to home improvement priorities. However, the importance of good quality, energy efficient windows is endless. Not only do windows help to maintain the energy efficiency of your home, but they also enhance the aesthetics. Especially if your current windows are showing visual signs of their age. The benefits to having efficient, well-sealed windows are endless.
Why Replace Your Home Windows?
The following are some top reasons why you might want to go ahead and replace your windows.
1. Energy Efficient/Cost Savings:
The energy savings from installing top quality, properly sealed replacement windows can be significant. Studies state as much as 40% savings on heating/cooling costs. At the end of each month, and for the year in total, your savings will be noticeable. In the end, the new windows will essentially pay for themselves.
2. Maintenance Free/Ease of Cleaning:
Installing new replacement windows will free up a lot of time that you used to spend on cleaning the interior and exterior of the old style windows. Forgo the hassle of of getting you latter to clean the outside of your windows. New style replacement windows have tilt-in technology on the top and bottom sash. This makes it easy to keep the interior and exterior sparkling clean. Plus, with vinyl interior and exterior there is no need for scraping and painting. They will stay looking like new for many years to come.
3. Easily/Quickly Installed:
Because our windows are customized to your exact specifications, our experienced installers have very little “tweeking” to do when it comes to creating that perfect, air-tight fit resulting in most window installations typically completed in one to two days. So, the impact to your daily routine is very minimal.
4. Curb Appeal:
As mentioned above, replacement windows will bring new life to the curb appeal of your home especially if your current windows are cracking or peeling and showing visual signs of their age. New replacement windows can take years off the look of your home.
5. Environmentally Friendly:
When you install energy efficient windows, your usage of energy resources will be decreased, decreasing your energy footprint and your contribution to green-house emissions therefore helping to protect our planet.
6. Rebates/Tax Credits:
Utility companies and the government periodically offer rebates and tax credits for new, energy efficient windows. By contacting your local energy company, you can get specific details regarding whether they have any current energy initiatives and see what type of rebates they are offering. You can also contact your tax advisor to see if the government has any current tax rebate offers as well.
