It’s important to have well-built, efficient windows in your home. While replacing your current windows may seem like a big, costly undertaking, the numerous advantages far outweigh any drawbacks. In today’s post, the exterior remodeling experts at Eagle Creek Siding, LLC discuss five reasons why you should replace your windows now.
Decreased utility costs. A lot of older homes have single-pane windows. If you replace old, drafty windows with energy-efficient ones, you’ll notice a significant reduction in energy consumption and can expect to save around 10-25% each year on energy bills. This is because new windows are equipped with low-E coatings and argon-gas-filled panes, which help prevent heat gain and loss.
Enhanced curb appeal. Installing modern windows can improve the architectural appearance and curb appeal of your home. There’s a wide variety of colors, sizes, styles and designs available that can complement the rest of your exterior.
Fade protection. New, energy-efficient window replacement units are constructed with panes of glass engineered to block harmful ultraviolet light. This glass can prevent your furniture, carpet, artwork and interior finishes from fading.
Reduced noise. Getting rid of old, single-pane windows and updating them to dual-pane or laminated glass will help eliminate outdoor noises, such as barking dogs, honking cars and lawnmowers, making your living space quieter and more comfortable.
Reduced leaks. If your current windows have developed air or water leaks due to the elements, it’s only a matter of time before mold, rot and other signs of water damage will occur. By replacing shabby, outdated windows, your home will be free of expensive structural problems and health hazards.
