This extreme below zero cold weather we are experiencing in Berks county is record-breaking!
And the heating bills that will follow this frigid weather may set records of their own. This makes January the perfect time to consider new windows for your home.
New windows are an investment in your home. Consider some of the benefits and return on your window investment.
Selecting energy efficient windows can:
Reduce Heating and Cooling Bills with Energy Efficient Windows
According to the energy.gov website: “If your home has very old and/or inefficient windows, it might be more cost-effective to replace them than to try to improve their energy efficiency. New, energy-efficient windows eventually pay for themselves through lower heating and cooling costs, and sometimes even lighting costs.”
They continue, “When properly selected and installed, energy-efficient windows can help minimize your heating, cooling, and lighting costs. Improving window performance in your home involves design, selection, and installation.”
New windows can also reduce the amount of outside noise that is heard in your home. You can improve the privacy of your home with beautiful and functional new windows!
New windows can enhance your view, increase light flow, and brighten a room. Windows with blinds in the glass offer a sleek way to control light and privacy in your home without the added expense of external blinds and layers of window coverings.
Manufacturers offer several different types of glass options. Some glass choices block most of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. This UV protection can significantly reduce the amount of fading to furniture and carpeting in your home. Be sure to select a glass option that fits your climate and lifestyle.
Energy Efficient Windows Increase Safety
New windows can also improve the safety and security of your home. Laminated glass makes it more difficult for intruders to break the glass. Tempered glass has safety advantages too. Tempered glass is less likely to splinter into jagged edges if accidentally broken.
Spend less time cleaning and maintaining windows. Low maintenance and easy care features like window blinds and tilt in options make cleaning a snap!
“Improved Curb Appeal”
Whether you intend to stay in your home forever or if you plan to sell soon. New windows can enhance your curb appeal and improve the value of your home.
