Benefits of Replacing Your Worn-Out Windows and Doors

Replacing your worn-out windows and doors can improve the value of your home, increase the energy efficiency and comfort of your home, and reduce your monthly energy bills. Here are a few benefits to consider when replacing old windows and doors:

Saving money on your monthly bills

Replacing your old windows and doors with Energy Star certified models will help you save money on your monthly bills. Energy Star rated windows can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to $100 per year. Some models even have an air infiltration rate of less than 0.3 cubic feet per minute at 0.3 inches wg meaning that they will allow less air to pass through them than the original ones did when they were installed. This means that more heat or cool air stays in the house rather than escaping through gaps in the walls or windows.

Increased energy efficiency

When it comes to energy efficiency, double-paned glass is not always better than single panes of glass with storm windows or shades. Newer technologies like laminated glass create better insulation between panes so you can enjoy lower energy costs without sacrificing aesthetics or comfortability. Laminated glass has a protective film between its two layers of glass which prevents moisture from getting between them.

Increased home value

Replacing old windows with new ones will make a big difference in the appearance of your home. When potential buyers see that you’ve taken care of any issues with your home’s exterior, they know that they’re getting a well-maintained property when they buy it from you. This increased value means that if you decide to sell soon after making these changes, you’ll likely get more money for your house than before because buyers are more likely to be interested in buying a house that doesn’t need repairs right away.

Less maintenance

Older windows may need to be repaired or replaced frequently while newer ones last longer and require less maintenance overall.

Improved security

Stronger locks and more secure frames make it harder for intruders to break through your windows or doors.

Comfort levels in your home will increase as well because new windows will keep out cold drafts and let in plenty of natural light during the day, which will help keep your home brighter during winter months when days are shorter than during summer months when days are longer.
