Should you be thinking about window replacement? First place to start is to know the age of your windows. Most people do not, but are very aware of how drafty their home feels. Utility bills can also be an indicator of your window’s age and efficiency. If your windows are over 20yrs old, it may be time to replace them with a newer model. Window upgrades have many benefits and here are a few reasons to upgrade outdated windows.
Window Replacement Benefits
- Energy Efficiency – most brand new windows are more efficient that older models. Normal wear and tear contributes to this, as well as the engineering advancements in modern windows. Energy efficient windows can lower your utility bills.
- Curb Appeal – new windows make your home look more appealing compared to old windows.
- Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning – efficient windows will extend the life of your HVAC systems because your home will better retain its temperature settings (compared to your 20yr old windows).
- Lower Maintenance – new vinyl windows are easier to maintain than aluminum windows. Vinyl frames are also resistant to scratching, peeling and cracking.
