Have you noticed a sudden spike in your heating and cooling bills lately? Your outdated windows and doors could be to blame. While new windows and doors can keep those bills under control, are they really worth the investment? Find out whether or not replacing your windows is worth the money and energy.
If you have single-pane windows or windows that are older than 10 years throughout your home, you are likely losing up to 30% of your heating and cooling energy. Outdated and single-pane windows do not have enough insulation to prevent drafts or reduce energy leaks, so it is no wonder why your energy bills are sky-high. By replacing your single-pane windows with double or triple-pane windows, you can save big. But you can save even more if you buy energy-efficient models with advanced weatherstripping, low-emissivity coatings, and efficient seals. The same goes for your entry door. New doors made of steel and fiberglass are five times more energy-efficient than wooden doors which will save you a lot of money in the long run.
High Return on Investment
New windows and doors will pay for themselves. For an average window and door replacement, you can expect to recoup up to 70-80% of the project cost in value! Replace them with high-quality energy-efficient models and the returns will grow even further.
Enhanced Curb Appeal
Worn and aging looking windows and doors can really bring down the curb appeal of your home. You will be surprised at what a difference it makes when you finally replace the old ones with brand new materials. Not only can it dramatically boost the curb appeal, but it will also enhance the value of your home. And that’s a big plus if you are planning to sell your home in the near future.
Fewer Maintenance Costs
Older windows and doors can also cost you a lot of money to regularly maintain. From fixing scratches to replacing weatherstripping, broken seals, and faulty locks, it can often feel like the repairs are never-ending. And when your windows and doors are not doing their job of keeping the cold air out and the warm air in, your HVAC unit must work harder to keep your home at a comfortable level. This often equates to more repair and maintenance costs that you really don’t need. When you opt for new windows and doors, you don’t have to worry about coming up with the money to pay for annual maintenance or unexpected repairs. It will be years before you have to do anything to your windows and doors again – and that’s worth the investment right there.
Optimal Year-Round Comfort
Is your home constantly cold in the winter and uncomfortably humid in the summer, even when your thermostat is properly set to a comfortable level? That’s a sign your windows and doors have air leaks. By replacing your current windows with ones that have new glazing and doors with better sealants you will maintain more heat, reduce drafts, and minimize hot spots in your home. The result – optimal comfort year-round.
