Replacing Old Windows Saves you Money

When it comes to saving on energy bills, replacing your old windows with newer energy-efficient impact windows is the way to go. It is one of the most cost-effective ways of improving the value of your property. Many factors come into play when it comes to determining the value of a home: the condition of the building itself; and the average age of the house. Older properties also generally require more frequent maintenance or may have been refurbished more recently. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why you may feel compelled to replace your windows. If you’re planning to replace your current windows, there are a number of factors that you should consider so that you get the best value for your money.

 

The first thing you’ll need to do is work with a professional window company that can guide you to find the best replacement windows for your home.  MPACT Windows & Doors can help you with this process and offer you many different options when it comes to window replacement. This way, you will know exactly what the window replacement will cost you, and you can ensure that you get the best quality product for your money.

 

The next thing you need to do is assess how highly rated you would like your new windows to be in order to reap the maximum benefits from energy-efficiency. Generally speaking, the higher the rating, the more efficient the window, as this means it will save you money on your cooling and heating costs throughout the year. The structure of your home should not be compromised by poor window installation. Be sure to contact a reputable window company that has a good reputation and will install your windows up to code.

How New Windows can Affect your Electric Bills

Energy costs aren’t getting any cheaper and one of the most overlooked strategies for reducing the cost of your electric bill is installing new windows. The windows that are typically installed in homes are those designed to keep costs low, profits high, and can account for up to 25 percent of your energy costs.

If your windows appear cloudy or foggy, you feel drafts around them, or they’re difficult to open, you can benefit from new windows. Another good indication that you’re losing air to the outdoors is if your windows feel hot to the touch in the summer. By far the most common windows found in homes that are 30 years old or less are single pane glass.

Modern technology has resulted in an array of window options that will help you save money on your electric bills. An added benefit is that they’re available in multiple styles and designs. Today’s windows offer eco-friendly materials and provide insulation against sound. Impact-resistant windows are able to protect against hurricane-force winds and burglaries.

One of the advantages to replacement windows is that you can get them with an e-coating that reflects heat back to the outside environment. Other options include double-pane glass or laminated insulated glass (LIG) designed with a third plate of glass and an air pocket to buffer heat from outside.  Vinyl frames prevent heat transfer to the interior of homes, requires little to no maintenance, and isn’t affected by mold, rot or insects.

The cost of everything is increasing, but that shouldn’t include your electric bill. Installing new windows will save you money throughout the year and make your home a more comfortable place to live. An added advantage is that modern replacement windows also increase the value of your home should you decide to sell it. The installation of energy-efficient windows may even qualify you for a tax break.
