Having a tough time opening your windows lately? Are there nasty drafts inside your home near your windows? Does moisture consistently show up on your windows’ interiors? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to consider replacing your windows.
Replacement windows are easy to open, close, clean, and enjoy! They deliver improved energy efficiency and heightened curb appeal to your home. Read on to find out even more advantages to those new windows you’re contemplating.
You’re Going to Love New Windows! Here’s Why:
1. They Brighten Your Indoor Space
There’s nothing like increasing the natural light in your home to brighten your day by boosting the moods of all who enter it! Research proves the point: the more natural light in your home or workspace, the more it lifts the spirits of the people within that space.
So, let the light shine with today’s sleek frames that give you more glass “real estate” so you can gain greater views of the outdoors and more natural light inside. (Trust us, you won’t regret this upgrade!) And you’ll boost your quality of life with more expansive views of the great outdoors!
2. Modern Replacement Windows Create Consistent Energy Savings
Face it, we all know that Minnesota winters can be brutal, so every ounce of protection against them can lead to energy savings and greater comfort indoors during the bitter cold. ENERGY STAR® certified windows deliver lower utility costs and protect the environment.
Replacing single-pane windows with double or triple pane windows filled with argon gas can significantly increase your home’s insulation and translate into energy savings as a result. Heat-reflecting low-E coatings can also help drop heating and cooling costs, so your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard (and won’t wear out as quickly either!).
3. Reduce Outside Noise
Noise pollution is actually harmful to your health, so choosing to replace your home’s windows can contribute to a healthier you! Your home should be an oasis of peace, and a refuge where you can reboot and recreate with those you love most. When sounds of street noise, neighborhood dogs, heavy equipment, trains, or planes invade the once quiet atmosphere of your home, it can be unnerving.
With noise-reducing replacement windows, you’ll enjoy a more peaceful indoor atmosphere, and sleep better as well! Less interruptions means higher quality sleep, so your days will be more productive.
4. Enhance Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Dramatically improve your home’s beauty (inside and out!) with new windows. Fiberglass, vinyl, and wood windows are available in a wide variety of interior and exterior finishes to coordinate with your home’s style and your taste.
5. New Windows Can Protect Your Furniture and Window Treatments from Sun Damage
Ultraviolet rays pouring through windows and patio doors can cause your furniture, carpet, and window treatments to fade. Particularly if you have any organic fabrics, you’ll see fading occur if you don’t have UV protection built into your windows.
Upgrading your windows to more energy-efficient ones can decrease the fading of your belongings and increase their lifespan as a result. Today’s replacement windows can block up to 95% of the sun’s UV rays, ensuring your possessions will be well protected.
6. Decrease Dust and Allergens in Your Home
Harbor fewer indoor allergens and dust in your home by choosing between-glass blinds and shades for your new windows. These concealed shading elements will also increase safety if you have pets or children.
7. Maximize Home Security
New windows feature enhanced safety options including locks and security sensors to maximize your family’s protection. Likewise, replacement windows deliver simple function, so in case of a fire, you can easily open them and escape. As you know, many old windows won’t even open, creating a dangerous situation if you ever had a house fire.
8. Rid Your Home of Drafts
The uncomfortable feeling you get when a draft ushers in chilly air during the winter can is one of the main signs it’s time for a window replacement. New windows ensure your home’s indoor temperatures are consistent throughout it, giving you the delightful indoor comfort you crave.
Be sure you hire a reputable company (like us!) to install your windows, ensuring they have a tight seal to prevent any air leaks.
9. New Windows Operate More Smoothly
When you need to be in top physical shape in order to open your home’s windows, that’s a problem. New windows deliver simple to use functions that make opening and closing them easy. They glide like they should with minimal effort on your part, making them a pleasure to operate.
10. Windows that are Easier to Maintain
The convenience of features like between-the-glass blinds and tilt-in window panes make cleaning your replacement windows a breeze.
11. Safeguard Your Home from Minnesota’s Weather
Protecting your home from water intrusion and harsh weather are some of the most important functions of your new windows. Inefficient windows leak and allow water to penetrate into your home, causing rot, mold, and energy inefficiency. New windows prevent all these costly hassles so you can enjoy your home without major repair bills.
