We understand—replacing the windows in your home is one of “those projects” that homeowners never like to think about doing. It’s certainly an investment. It’s important to find the right contractor to install the windows. It’s crucial to find the right type of windows for your particular home. Did we mention it’s an investment?
Well, the good news is we believe that the investment of purchasing and installing new windows for your home is one that is certainly well worth the money. Below, we lay out a few of the many benefits of full window replacement.
- Increased Efficiency. Perhaps the most obvious reason and the benefit homeowners think about the most when discussing window replacement is the benefit it will have on the home’s overall performance. New windows, when installed correctly for each opening, will drastically reduce (or eliminate) the amount of leaks in your home. A comprehensive home energy performance assessment is the best way to determine how much you’ll save in energy costs if and when you decide to replace your windows. Reducing your energy consumption with new windows also allows you to limit the environmental impact you and your home are having. By using less energy (sometimes even 25%+ less energy depending on the types of windows), you’re using up fewer natural resources.
- Financial Benefits. Going right along with increased efficiency is the cost savings you will see after installing new windows. A drastic reduction in the amount of energy it takes to heat and cool your home is going to have a welcomed impact on your monthly energy bill. Many experts also say that replacing your windows is one of the best investments you can make on your home in terms of resale and overall value for your home. Recently replaced windows are a huge selling point for prospective buyers. Many times window warranties (like ours here at BelRed) are transferrable to the next owner, so that peace of mind that comes with brand new windows can carry over if you decide to sell your home. There are also many tax breaks and incentives today that homeowners are taking advantage of that make swallowing the initial cost of window replacement a little bit easier.
- Curb Appeal. The look of new windows can’t be beat. After installation, you’re sure to get immediate compliments on the fresh new look of your home—both on the exterior and interior! Again, this may add to the value of your home. It’s a win-win.
