Feeling safe and secure in your home is one of the most important components of home ownership. Just as doors are important in keeping things in (and out) of the home, windows are just as important to security, as well as comfort. However, if there are no visible problems with your windows, they’re likely not on top of the list when it comes to home remodeling projects.
Let’s take a look at some reasons why window replacement should gain priority when it comes to updating the feel and function of your home.
Are Your Windows Single-Pane?
Single-pane glass windows may be the single most reason for residential window replacement. Single-pane windows will feel cold to the touch during winter months, and hot to the touch during summer—which allows heat and cold to come through every window in the home. Not only is this not energy efficient, frost can develop on the inside of windows during very cold months, increasing the chance of cracking.
Replacing your windows with modern, dual-paned glass can cut down on your energy bills, and prevent damage to your home.
Window Replacement Can Increase Peace and Quiet In The Home
You don’t have to live near an airport or train tracks to experience noise in your house. Even a suburban street can produce more noise than you’re aware of. Home window replacement can greatly reduce the noise transmission in your house, and offer more peace and quiet during every hour of the day and night.
Are Your Windows Easy To Open and Close?
Having quick access to and from your windows is critical in case of an emergency such as a fire, or flooding. If your windows are difficult to open, by every able-bodied occupant of your home, they should be replaced immediately. In addition, your windows should be able to close and lock easily, as well. Aside from being an important safety concern, air can escape through windows that aren’t easily shut, or cannot shut completely.
Do Your Windows Fit The Style of Your Home?
Your home is a major investment, and each component of your house should increase its value and add to your enjoyment. Window replacement of outdated or lackluster windows can greatly improve the look of your home, while saving energy and keeping your family and belongings secure.
