First of all, most older windows only have a single pane of glass. These single pane windows allow heat to escape during the winter and cool air-conditioned air to slip out in the summer. This causes your heating and cooling systems to work overtime, struggling to keep the air inside your home temperate. However, energy-efficient windows have two or even three panes which help keep in favorable air in, allowing your heating and cooling systems to work as they should. Window replacement is an essential part of any efficiently running home, keeping heating and cooling costs where they need to be. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that people can save between $126 to $465 a year by replacing single-pane windows in their home.
Window replacement is the less expensive way to reduce energy costs. If you’re looking to reduce your home’s energy costs, window replacement is a great, affordable place to start. Not to mention they offer a variety of other benefits you will love.
New windows are also easier to clean! New window options include double-hung and sliding windows for convenient cleaning. Also, the old-style aluminum and wooden frames often leaked moisture, were heavy and difficult to clean. The windows of today are usually double sliding, with tight frames, are lighter and have none of these problems.
And don’t forget window replacement can also add value to your home when it comes time to sell.
