When replacing your windows, you will be doing a lot more for your home than just updating its style. New windows can actually save you money in several ways. Here’s an idea of what you can expect when you install new replacement windows from All-Weather Windows, Doors & Siding.
NEW WINDOWS HELP TO LOWER ENERGY BILLS
Old windows really start to show their age when your energy bills start hiking up. Uneven frames, cracked glass, and broken seals can all leave you with a drafty home that is literally sucking money from your wallet. By replacing them with new energy efficient windows though, you can start saving more on your energy bills. Older homes with leaky single pane windows can expect to see a 20-25% savings, and newer homes can expect to see around 10-15% savings.
This number could be greater if your existing windows were not installed properly when the home was built. Today’s energy-smart windows will also have Low E glass options that will actually reflect heat out of your home in the Summer, and keep it in your home in the Winter, keeping the electric and gas bills down. Using Low E glass will also block the harmful UV from the sun’s rays that causes expensive damage by fading flooring, window treatments, and household furnishings.
REPLACING OLD WINDOWS ADDS RESALE VALUE TO YOUR HOME
New windows can increase the resale value of your home by making your home look nicer, but also by making your home more energy efficient. Newer windows can help insulate your home better in both the warm and cooler months, meaning savings all year round. Call All-Weather today, and ask about our top-of-the-line energy efficient window brands, like Andersen and Silver Line.
NEW WINDOWS REQUIRE LESS MAINTENANCE
When replacing your windows, you’ll also see savings when it comes to maintaining them. New windows are associated with lower maintenance cost due to their more durable materials like vinyl, Fibrex®, and clad wood, that will eliminate exterior painting and wood rot forever and insulated glass structure. They will be less likely to cause your problems, and have a longer lifespan than old windows do. Many new styles of windows are also easier to clean, saving you not only money, but time as well. Ask your All-Weather consultant about the different type of window styles that could work in your home.
