Your windows are an important part of your home’s health. Making sure your windows are in good condition is essential for keeping your home happy and healthy.

One of the first things that comes to most homeowners minds when pondering a window replacement is the energy savings they will gain. Old windows aren’t air-tight, and even a small draft can add up leaking a significant amount of heat out of your home. If you’re windows are in bad shape, you could be literally tossing money out your windows.
In addition to making your home more energy efficient, replacement windows also simply make your home more comfortable. They prevent air leakage, which will make your home more comfortable to be inside.
Another benefit of replacement windows is that they reduce, or completely inhibit, condensation issues. Generally, condensation forms on a window due to a faulty seal that is allowing air to leak between the two (or three) panes of glass in the window. Replacing, or sometimes simply resealing, your windows will address any condensation issues you have been dealing with.
If you’ve been looking for a way to increase your home’s curb appeal, replacing your windows can be a fantastic way to do so. Old windows begin to look worn out, with chipping paint, or foggy, stained glass. Installing new windows that fit your home’s aesthetic style is a surefire way to increase your home’s curb appeal.
Replacement windows with new glass can also help reduce fading on your fabrics. UV rays wear away at the fibers of your fabrics, from your carpet, to your couch, and over time this leads to fading. You’ll notice this is you’ve ever rearranged a room that had the same lay-out for a few years. Replacement windows can significantly reduce the amount of UV rays coming through your glass and help reduce the solar fading on your furniture.

Replacement windows are frequently given a 70-80% return on investment value, which in combination with the energy savings you gain from installing new windows, can virtually pay for the investment within a few years. This makes replacing your windows a very worthwhile investment for your home.
