More Heat is Lost from Your Windows Than You May Realize
We find that California residents often assume that because they do not live in areas that get excessively hot or excessively cold for many days of the year, it is not as important to seal their windows. False. Consider that windows are the cause of at least 25% if not 30% of all residential heat gain and heat loss. Thanks to advancements in windows in recent years, you can save a ton of money by installing windows that are up for today’s challenges.
The Newest Window Technology Makes a Big Difference
Today’s windows can help you save a significant amount compared to older windows. There are not only double-paned windows but triple-paned as well. These are filled with argon gas, which means that your home is double or even triply protected from the elements.
You can add additional options too, such as Low-E glass coatings that protect against solar heat. They work by deflecting rays from the sun and filtering UV to protect your carpet, art, furniture, etc. from fading or otherwise becoming sun-damaged.
Double-Hung Windows Are Easier to Clean
Double-hung windows are more energy efficient than many options – and they are easier to clean too. All you do is tilt them and you can clean both the inside and the outside. They also come in more color and styles compared to other choices, which means you can improve the curb appeal and personal enjoyment of your home.
Replacing Your Windows Improves Your Home’s Security
If you have older windows, then you are not as secure as you could be. Today’s replacement glass windows are made of stronger glass and can protect your home from break-ins. Even someone hitting a baseball into your window on accident is no match for many of the newer windows out there.
Energy-Efficient Windows Can Improve Your Home’s Resale Value
Whether you want energy-efficient upgrades or not, there is no question that buyers do. When you have energy-efficient windows already installed, home buyers are more likely to be interested in what you are selling. In fact, buyers name energy-efficient upgrades as one of the most desired renovations when looking for a home.
