Great things happen to you, your home and your family when you replace your windows. Whether you’re hoping to reduce your utility bills, enjoy improved window operability, increase the value of your home before selling it, or you’re just hoping to enjoy better quality of life at your house, replacing your windows can do all of this and more. Knowing the benefits of replacing your home’s windows can help you decide whether this home improvement project is right for you.
Old windows are often energy inefficient. Drafts in winter and heat transferred in summer can place a burden on your home’s heating and cooling system, driving up your bills, forcing your systems to work harder and longer just to keep your home comfortable and shortening its service life. This in turn leads to bigger utility bills, and more money spent on HVAC maintenance or replacement.
Replacing old drafty windows can help tighten your home’s envelope and reduce your dependence on your heating and cooling systems. Fewer air leaks and energy leaks means less time running your air conditioner and furnace, and lower utility bills overall.
This is especially true when you purchase windows from Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro. Made from highly efficient low-E glass, and featuring Fibrex composite material window frames, Renewal by Andersen’s windows have won awards for their energy efficiency.
New windows are a valuable upgrade that can increase the value of your home. Some experts estimate that new windows have an return on investment of around 75% or even more, depending on the materials and energy efficiency.
If you’re hoping to increase the value of your house and make your home more attractive to home buyers, installing new windows is a great way to accomplish these goals.
With a more energy-efficient house, you’ll become more comfortable indoors, even as your HVAC system runs less. Do you hate those drafts in winter? Do you hate a stuffy room in summer? You’ll see an improvement in problems like these when you install quality new windows in your home.
You may also notice that it’s easier to sit by a sunny window in summer, without your skin starting to feel extra hot. This is another one of the benefits of installing new windows made with insulated low-E glass.
Old windows can start to develop cosmetic problems, like window frames that are warped or need to be caulked, scraped, stained or painted, but new windows look beautiful. Better yet, if you buy the right windows, they will always look beautiful without needing new stain or paint. Renewal by Andersen window frames are made from a composite material called Fibrex that never needs painting or staining. As a composite wood material, the Fibrex material continues to look great year-in and year-out, without needing any paint.
