Ever wondered how you could lower your energy bills while increasing the value of your home? The answer might lie in a window replacement. In this article, Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle explores all of the money-saving benefits of window replacement.
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
Older windows often don’t have the energy-efficient features that modern windows provide. Single-pane windows or windows with old, worn-out insulation and sealing can increase your energy costs by allowing cold and heat to escape your home easily.
On the contrary, lower energy consumption is guaranteed by investing in newer energy-efficient windows such as double- or triple-pane windows. These windows feature enhanced insulation which can help you save significantly on your monthly heating and cooling bills.
Decreased Maintenance Costs
Another excellent reason to replace old windows is to cut down on maintenance costs. For example, wooden frames require regular upkeep, such as painting and sealing, to prevent rot and other damage. On the other hand, modern windows made with Fibrex®, vinyl or fiberglass frames require little to no maintenance, saving you money and time in the long run.
Increased Property Value
Window replacement projects can significantly boost your property’s value. High-quality, energy-efficient windows are an attractive feature for many home buyers. This means your home could sell more quickly and at a higher price.
Lower Risk of Structural Damage
Old, leaky windows can cause water to seep into the walls of your property, leading to severe structural damage over time. This includes rot and mold growth, which are expensive to repair. By replacing your windows promptly, you can prevent such costly damage.
