Your home’s windows should be one of the talking points surrounding your home. Upgrading your windows can be a great way to spruce up both the interior and exterior of your home and add a unique sense of flair and design to your home. Beyond the aesthetics, installing new windows comes with a host of benefits that make the financial investment well worth it.
Residential window design and installation experts often cite four important reasons why a new window upgrade is the best investment you can make in your home.
Instantly Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Old or severely damaged windows can make it hard to maintain comfortable temperatures in your home. With drafty windows, your home may be too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. By upgrading to newer windows, you can reap the added energy efficiency benefit built into modern windows. Your new windows are produced using the latest energy efficient materials and technology, allowing you to lower your utility bills and better manage your home’s temperature, all year round.
Eliminate Harmful UV Rays
New replacement windows are expertly-designed with a special film to protect your family by preventing harmful ultraviolet sun rays from entering into your home. Not only can UV rays damage your furniture but they can also your family’s health at risk. If you’re not sure if your home’s windows have this protective covering, then it may be best to have a certified window installer come to inspect the integrity of your windows.
Cut Back on Noise Pollution
Whether it’s a passing train, rush hour traffic or a neighbor’s dog, new windows can keep outside noises where they should be – outside. You’d be surprised how much quieter your home will be with new windows. On the flip side, if you like to listen to your music at top volume, or your child is a budding drummer, the added insulation that comes with new windows will help reduce the amount of noise that gets out, making it more pleasant for everyone around you.
Protect Your Most Prized Possession – Your Family
Contemporary windows are built with a host of new features designed to take protecting your family to another level. With special reinforcement and anti-open features, new windows make it almost impossible for intruders (and animals) to get into your home. Additional security add-ons can be custom built into your windows, depending on the window design provider you partner with.
