Replacement windows are a great investment. Homeowners who may be unaware that they play a key role in the beauty and comfort of their home may not realize this immediately. Apart from keeping the elements at bay, modern windows regulate comfort levels and serve as aesthetic pieces of hardware in their own right.
In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Central Illinois lists the four benefits of timely window replacement.
1. Avoid Serious Window Problems
Old and worn out windows have a negative impact on your home. They are a security risk, they’re more susceptible to getting damaged by storms and they can cause your energy bills to spike due to a decrease in your home’s energy efficiency. These all start from small issues that grow larger over time, if you continue to ignore your windows.
2. Avoid Higher Energy Bills
Your new replacement windows will save you the hassle of paying increasing energy bills. This is due to the fact that worn-out and old windows start to lose their weatherstripping over time, not to mention their frames actually shrink as they get older, which means more air leaks.
3. Keep Your Home Looking Good
Replacing windows in a timely manner keeps your home looking great. Windows can restore the look of your home. Old and damaged windows are very noticeable from the curb, so replace them as soon as you can to prevent your property’s value from plummeting.
4. Reduce Fading
Old windows let harmful UV light into your home, which doesn’t bode well for your furniture, carpets and other items in your home. Leather sofas and chairs are particularly susceptible, as the material is easily damaged by exposure to sunlight.
