Why Replace Your Windows?
Posted on Jan 16, 2015
Do your old windows have storms that fall, frames that splinter, or sashes that stick? Do you awkwardly strain your back and neck cleaning panes? If this sounds like your experience with windows, consider replacing them. Not only are new windows cost-effective, but they are also easier to maintain.
Storm windows simply are not as energy-efficient as modern options like the tilt-in double hung.The numerous technological improvements such as “low-e glass” (low emissivity glass) and UV window films give homeowners better options for maintaining their home’s heating and cooling as well as protecting their furniture from fading and discoloration. Replace your storm windows and enjoy the satisfaction of saving money while living in comfort.
Not only are modern double-hungs energy-efficient but they are also much easier to clean. Many models tilt in, making your maintenance quick and easy. Accessing windows on the second story of your home will be hassle-free when you skip the ladders and clean from the comfort of the inside of your own home. Furthermore, installing tilt-in double-hungs will save you money during professional services, as there are fewer panes to clean. Additionally, these models often come with removable grilles or grilles-between-the-glass that make upkeep on your windows a breeze.
Replacing your old windows is a good investment for many reasons. Energy efficiency, easy maintenance, as well as increased natural light are only a few of the added benefits of updating your home. Moreover, modern windows add curb appeal to any home getting a makeover.
