Windows can be an important way to keep warm this winter and cool in the summer. If cold weather outside seems to be seeping into your home and the heat from the summer sun coming in, or you have noticed some of the other signs that your windows might be wearing out—such as fog, condensation, rotted or warped window sills, windows that won’t open, or drafty air in the vicinity—here are just a few reasons you should consider replacement windows.
Maintain More Constant Indoor Temperatures
Well-insulated windows will help to keep the cold air outside and the warm air inside. As windows get older, or if you have, windows that only include single pane glass, they probably are not as effective as they could be at maintaining the temperature inside your home. What that means is your furnace has to work overtime to keep the house warm, while all that hot air (and money) is quite literally flying out the windows.
Keep the Entire House Comfortable
Sometimes when your windows get older, you will find that the seats or areas around your windows are much colder than the rest of the house. Nobody wants to sit on the couch under the window because it is drafty and freezing. Rather than turning up the furnace to accommodate the coldest parts of your home, get replacement windows so every seat in the house is a comfortable one.
Finally, if the high cost of heating your home is starting to put a dent in your budget every month, replacement windows can help you reduce your heating costs—without needing to significantly turn down the thermostat. In addition to those monthly utility bill savings, well-insulated replacement windows will also help preserve the life of your furniture so it does not fade from UV exposure, and prolong the life of your furnace because it will not have to work as hard to keep the house warm. Those might not be immediately visible cost savings, but in the end, they can really add up.
If you are feeling the weather from the outdoors, or the windows in your home just are not doing the job anymore, consider the benefits that replacement windows can provide to keep you warm in the winter and comfortable all year round.
