How Replacement Windows Can Increase Your Equity
Curbside appeal – every homeowner wants it. Whether it’s new landscaping or fresh paint, you’ll do whatever it takes to make your house look beautiful from the street. Sometimes you have to look beyond the walls and think outside the box when it comes to adding value to your home. If you really want to make a good impression on passersby while reaping the benefits, start by replacing your outdated windows. Here are 4 benefits of replacement windows!
You’ll feel more comfortable.
If your windows have single-pane glass, you can feel the heat and the cold from the outside. Cold glass creates chilly drafts in a room, and direct sunlight can make the room overheat. New replacement windows will likely have a lower U-factor and solar heat gain ratings, acting as an insulator between you and the outside.
The HVAC unit won’t work as hard.
Drafts and overheating cause fluctuations in the temperature, making your HVAC unit turn on and off repeatedly. This constant operation puts a load on the unit and causes it to break down more frequently. New replacement windows prevent rising and falling temperatures, taking the strain off your heating and cooling unit.
You get to save more money per month.
When your HVAC system turns on repeatedly, it uses more electricity. Therefore, you’ll notice an increase in your utility bill every month, especially during the extreme parts of the seasons. Replacement windows prevent drafts and overheating, so your unit won’t turn on as much, and your power bills won’t rise.
There’s no worry about faded upholstery.
Direct sunlight goes straight through single-pane glass into a home, where it not only overheats the room but causes fading on upholstery, carpets and drapes. Modern replacement windows reduce the amount of solar radiation that infiltrates the interior. The less solar gain, the less fading on fabrics, wood and artworks. You’ll see increased light with new windows without the unwanted heat gain and destructive radiation.
