Windows provide some heat in the winter by letting in sunlight. But drafty windows can cause your energy bills to be about 10% to 25% higher, according to Energy.gov. Replace windows with energy-efficient ones to reduce your heating and cooling bills.
At Russell Roofing and Exteriors, we found that when you replace windows with new, improved windows, it provides many advantages for a homeowner.
Replace Windows to help:
- Lower energy bills– Russell Roofing and Exteriors installs replacement windows that are engineered for superior thermal performance. They combine insulated frames made of advanced materials, improved seals, and energy-efficient glass packages to create an effective barrier against the transfer of energy into and out of your home. This helps to significantly reduce the energy loss of 30% or more that the U.S. Department of Energy estimates is caused every year by inefficient windows. Put simply, you’ll stay warmer in the cold, cooler in the heat, and pay less every month on your energy bills.
- Improved aesthetics– New windows can change the entire look of your home, both inside and out. More expansive glass area, attractively finished frames, and easy operation can bring more focus on your windows. And if you choose a custom style like a graceful Palladian window, the sky’s the limit!
- Ease of operation– Modern windows are much easier to operate than the old wood-frame windows that rattled all winter and got stuck in the summer’s humidity. Advanced materials ensure smooth operation, and many window styles are available with easy-to-use tilt-in features that make cleaning a snap.
- Increased home value– When you replace windows it can enhance the “curb appeal” and value of your home. Home buyers look for improvements like new windows when evaluating a purchase. Even if you are not selling, you’ll enjoy the security of knowing you have a more valuable home.
