4 Reasons to Install New Windows This Year

It’s a sad fact that the windows in your home won’t last forever. In fact, most need to be replaced at least every few decades. As old parts break down, windows often become less efficient, more difficult to operate and simply less attractive with time. When this occurs it may be important to your family’s and your house’s health, not to mention your energy bills, to replace your windows with modern windows that are more energy efficient and attractive.

In fact, there are many benefits to replacing your home’s windows. Knowing those benefits can help you decide if now is the time to replace those old windows.

#1. New Windows Improve Energy Efficiency

Old windows are almost never as energy efficient as modern windows. Years ago, typical windows came with a single pane of glass that had not been treated to block UV or infrared light. The materials used to create the window were not as tight or energy efficient as modern window materials.

As a result, about 25% of heat gain and heat loss in the home comes through the windows. Replacing your old windows can save your home up to $465 per year in utility costs, depending on how much energy you’re losing through your windows. That’s a great reason to replace your windows this year!

#2. New Windows Can Raise Your Property Value

A replacement window project often has a high Return On Investment, not only because they can save you on your utility bills now, but because they improve the value of your home and make your home more attractive to buyers. Just how much you’ll get back when you sell your home depends on how much you spend and the quality of your windows. If you have questions about how much new windows can raise the value of your home, consider talking to an experienced real estate professional.

#3. New Windows Can Reduce Your Maintenance Chores

Old windows – especially wooden windows – need a lot of care. They have to be refinished or repainted regularly in order to keep them operating properly. Windows made with modern materials, especially window frames made from Fibrex material, last a long time without any painting or refinishing. Simply keep your windows clean, and you can enjoy your windows for decades to come.

If you’re tired of repainting or refinishing your windows, then it may be time to replace them. If you’re interested in windows made Fibrex material window frames, contact Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro at (866) 609-5033 for a quote.

Window replacement can make your home look beautiful, inside and out, adding a newness that makes your home stand out from other houses on the block. This can be especially helpful if you’re trying to sell anytime soon.
