How long have you been living in your home? If you have spent decades in your home, and have never had the windows replaced, start shopping! If you have recently moved into an old home with old windows, consider having them replaced sooner than later. Old windows are inefficient and cost more money over the long term than it would cost to replace them. Here’s why:
Older windows are typically single-paned, with poor insulation. As a result, older windows often provide little to no noise reduction. Homeowners with old windows often complain that they can hear crickets chirping loudly at night and every car that drives by as if they were sitting on the patio.
Because they are thin and often poorly insulated, old windows are not energy efficient. Modern windows are typically double-paned and often contain argon or other dense gases between the panes, preventing energy transfer. Many old window frames are made from materials like wood that tend to degrade and rot. When windows cease to insulate, your heating system has to work harder to keep your home warm.
Single-paned windows can freeze and crack during cold winters, or develop leaks. New, energy-efficient windows are often made of durable materials like vinyl, which provide proper installation and last a lifetime. Hiring professional installers to replace your windows will not only reduce your energy bills, but will also keep out bad weather and make your home more secure.
We all want our windows to look good on the inside and out. If your old windows are decaying and broken from years of wear, there’s no good reason not to replace them. New replacement windows bring new life and light to the house.
