It can be tempting to put your home improvement budget towards cosmetic changes within the home, but that’s a mistake that could cost you in the long run. Windows play a vital role in the energy efficiency and security of your home but knowing when to replace them and what other benefits can come from new windows is the key to getting the most out of your investment.
Windows play a large role in the insulation of your home. That means that old windows could be costing you each month on your heating and cooling bill. New windows are pricey, but after just one year of energy savings, you could see a return on investment of nearly 70%. If you notice a draft, difficulty opening and closing, or water damage around your windows, it’s time to replace!
Improved insulation of your home through new windows will not only lower your heating and cooling bill, it will improve your level of comfort. You will be able to enjoy a more consistent temperature within the home paired with significant noise reduction from the outside world. Maintenance spent each year on old windows is now time you can spend enjoying your home! New windows come equipped with UV protection as well which can give you the peace of mind in knowing that your floors, walls, and furniture will last for years to come. Improved natural light will brighten up the rest of your home and instantly improve spaces that you may not have the budget to renovate just yet.
Increase the Value of Your Home
Your home is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your lifetime. That means that the money you put into that investment should be increasing your potential profit margin. New windows instantly increase the resale value of your home. The added curb appeal that can be found in unique designs and styles of windows will increase that value even more. The cost of the windows is sure to nearly pay for themselves with the added value of your home! Paired with new siding, doors, and other small fixture changes, new windows bring a new life into your space.
