Replacement Window Advantages

Spring has officially sprung and it’s the time of year when homeowners begin tackling home improvement projects like replacing old, worn, drafty windows. If you want your windows replaced or if you’re building a new home or adding onto an existing dwelling and need new windows installed, you’ve come to the right place.

There are a number of reasons home owners choose to replace their windows but there are also many advantages associated with replacement windows. Replacing old, damaged or deteriorating windows can lower energy costs, reduce outside noise, improve a home’s appearance and value, and add curb appeal as well.

Decreased Utility Costs

Energy efficient replacement windows can reduce your monthly utility bills and save you money if your current ones are very old, single pane, or deteriorating. Utility costs are high enough right now and unfortunately they’ll most likely continue to increase as time goes on. Replacing drafty or inefficient windows with one’s that are energy efficient can keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer lowering energy costs at the same time.

UV rays Reduction

Replacement windows can also be obtained with UV protection to keep the direct sunlight out which can fade your carpets, drapes and home furnishings. Vinyl home replacement windows are not only cost effective on your energy bills, they’re also durable and low maintenance because they never need to be painted or stained.

Easy Cleaning

Most modern replacement windows are easy to clean which is another huge advantage. Some people choose to upgrade their windows simply because their existing windows are difficult to clean. Many of the replacement windows available today are equipped with tilt-in cleaning eliminating the need for having to go outside in the weather and possibly stand on ladders in order to wash the outsides.

Sound Reduction

Another advantage of replacement windows is sound reduction. If your home has older single pane windows you can probably hear all of the outside noises which can be quite distracting. If you live on a busy street and there’s a lot of traffic, adding quality thermal pane glass window replacements can greatly buffer sounds coming from the exterior of your home.

Enhance Home Appearance

There are many ways a homeowner can improve their homes appearance inside and out and quality replacement windows can make a dramatic improvement from the exterior of the home. Updating windows with quality replacements will not only enhance a home’s appearance for the homeowner but can also make a difference should they ever decide to sell their home in the future.

These are just some of the many advantages associated with upgrading the windows in your home. Replacement windows are a good investment but they’re not easily installed. There are also many different window options available today and a homeowner may have a difficult time choosing the best option to fit their needs.

    Thanks for bringing to my attention that installing new windows can reduce sound. My husband and I just moved into an older home, and it’s located on a busy street, so the sounds of traffic can sometimes be really obtrusive. It would be really nice to enjoy some peace and quiet, especially in the living room with that large window facing the street, so maybe we could look into replacing those with something more insulated against sound.

    I think a lot of people underestimate what a difference new windows can make on their homes efficiency. I have been looking for ideas on how to lower my bills and this may just be the answer. Our home is pretty old so I am hoping this can make the difference I am looking for.

    My windows are pretty old, but I’m not sure what I should do for them. I didn’t realize that replacing them could be so beneficial! It makes sense that new windows would be more air-tight, so my home would be more energy efficient.

    I didn’t realize that some people get new windows just because the old ones are too hard to clean. We should totally do that because cleaning our old windows is such a chore. They just don’t get as clean as they used to, and I get frustrated trying. I’ll have to see how soon we could get them replaced because I’d like to have them changed out before the weather gets too cold.

    My husband and I want to remodel our home, and we’re considering replacing the windows. We’re not sure if this is a good idea, but your article had some great points about why it would be. You mention that replacement windows can help us save on our energy bills and are durable and low maintenance, and we’ll keep these advantages in mind when deciding if replacement windows are right for us.
