The simple answer is yes. Purchasing new, high quality windows now will pay off in the future.
Replacement windows not only increase your home’s curb appeal, but they can also increase the value of your home and save on your energy bill.
- New replacement windows are more energy-efficient and can help reduce your energy bill.
- They are designed to keep heated or cooled air inside and block out bad air from coming inside.
- Older windows might have leaks that allow for your temperature controlled air to escape. New frame materials, such as vinyl and fiberglass, do not conduct heat like the older aluminum windows. You will also be much more comfortable in your home.
Higher quality windows are designed to be longer lasting, more energy efficient, and provide more advanced features. Depending on which window you are looking at, some of the new features help with noise reduction. By offering a sound package, the windows make it quieter in your home. So, if you are tired of listening to your neighbors or hearing road noises, this might be an important option for you. Another feature of a high quality window to consider is the ability to offer protection from harmful UV rays. This means that the windows will prevent the sun from heating up a room in the summer, it will be less likely to allow for discoloration of furniture and/or flooring, and help reduce energy costs. A high quality window is just built better with attention to the details and new technology added. It will also come with a good warranty and little or low maintenance will be required.
Remember, you only have one chance to make a good first impression. Old windows could be doing more harm than just letting pests in and good air out. So, when you look at your house, think about replacing the old windows and add to your home’s curb appeal and value. And, don’t forget, you get what you pay for, so buy a high quality window!
