Windows are one of the most important things in your home! They let in air and light, brightening up and freshening up living areas. It is important to ensure your windows are functioning properly, safe, and are not losing energy. GreenFox Windows & Doors in Edmonton shares reasons why you might need a window replacement:
Improved Functionality & Operation
Windows that become difficult to open, close and clean can get very annoying. Plus, damaged windows can pose a safety hazard, reduce efficiency and if they are letting in water, can cause costly damage to your home. How do you know it’s time to replace your windows? Look for signs of condensation between panes, noticeable drafts or moisture getting in and examine your windows for damaged seals or warped frames. If you see these issues, it’s time for a window replacement.
Insulating and energy efficient technology has greatly improved windows. Window companies in Edmonton can offer new vinyl windows that can decrease your heating and cooling costs up to 35%. Older homes will generally have single pane, aluminum windows and upgrading these will make a tremendous difference in your energy savings and will reduce heating costs in the winter and cooling costs in the summer. More than that, these windows will lock noise out more effectively, creating a peaceful home environment.
Increase Home Value
Replacing your windows will boost curb appeal and your home’s resale value. New windows are usually on the must-have list for a potential buyer and they have a good return on investment. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report for 2017, a vinyl window replacement will recoup nearly 74% of it’s original cost. New windows also make your home look more spacious and larger with clean panes that allow huge amounts of natural light. This is attractive to potential home buyers.
