Why You Should Invest In Replacement Windows Before Winter Arrives
So, you have outdated, worn-down windows, but you’re trying to squeeze another year or two out of them before investing in window replacement.
Have you noticed more condensation from frost? Does the window glass turn cold in the winter and hot in the summer? Can you feel outside air while sitting inside? Are exterior noises loud and clear in your home?
If this sounds familiar, then it’s time to start thinking about replacement windows before the winter weather hits.
Installing replacement windows before winter arrives has clear advantages:[su_list icon=”icon: chevron-right” icon_color=”#EC3826″]
- Energy efficiency: Save on your utility bills during winter months with new energy efficient windows. Older panes allow cold air in while hot air escapes, making your furnace work overtime to keep your house warm. With energy efficient replacement windows, you will immediately notice your furnace working less, which will decrease your energy costs—savings that practically pay for your new windows.
- Eliminate single panes: A winter window replacement is a great time to rid your home of all single-pane windows. Double panes offer exterior noise reduction and prevent cool temperatures and moisture entering your home.
- Safety hazards: Did you know that older windows are safety hazards? In the winter cracks, and chips in your window panes are a safety issue because they become more brittle in freezing temperatures. Drafts are just a nuisance, but the risk of broken glass is an immediate safety hazard.
- Avoid leaks: Consider window replacement to eliminate the risk of water damage. A broken window can easily result in leakages, from condensation, rainfall, or snowfall. A broken window is one thing, but water damage is an even costlier repair.
- Dangerous materials: Older windows frequently contain lead paint, a hazardous material for anyone exposed to it. Upgrading your windows has the added advantage of eliminating lead paint from your home, protecting your family’s long-term health.[/su_list]
