To understand why home windows replacement makes so much sense, ask yourself this question: would you ever open your windows wide on a hot summer day while the air conditioning is running full blast? “Of course not!” you say. “That would be like throwing money out the window!” And of course, you're right. But did you know that putting off replacing your home windows is almost as bad? Consider the following facts:
- Effective insulation requires having a dead air space between two solid surfaces, a critical feature that all single-pane windows lack. Without this insulation, energy radiates through your windows to the outside world. In many cases, it's almost as bad as having no windows at all. That may be why your utility bills have been high.
- The only way to truly correct the problem is to invest in modern energy-efficient window panes. Simply adding more glazing to single pane windows doesn't fix the underlying problem. It's better than nothing, but you'll still be paying too much to keep your home comfortable. Over time, the compounded costs can be enormous.
- Perhaps you already have double-pane windows. If so, then great! But did you know that today's products offer advantages that those from just a few years ago can't match? You may think you're saving plenty of money as-is, but you could still be giving away money to your utility company every month that you could otherwise keep in your pocket. The only way to know for sure is to check out the benefits of modern home windows replacement.
- There's nothing like new windows to give a home added beauty and style. Not only will this allow you to take more pride in your residence, it can also make a big difference when it comes time to sell your house.
