When it comes to home improvement projects, nothing comes close to being less stressful and more immediate than a windows replacement. In addition to the fact that it can be done within a day, it is also perhaps the only project you can pursue that will enhance the look of both your home’s interior and exterior in an instant.
Polar Bear Energy Solutions, your local roofing, windows and siding contractor, shares the reasons replacing your current windows is worth it.
Reducing Drafts in Your Home
The overall state of your windows influences how well it protects your indoors against the elements. When windows already show signs of damage, it is possible that air infiltration or drafts may occur. When this happens, you’d most likely use your HVAC unit more often, which would then cause an increase in your energy consumption. Indeed, replacing your old fixtures and installing new units the correct way ensures your home’s energy efficiency.
Limiting the Presence of Moisture in Your Windows
Another reason to contact a double-hung or awning window contractor for a window replacement project is if your old windows don’t prevent moisture. Condensation forming on the windows’ glazing is enough proof to get replacement windows and have them installed as soon as possible.
Protecting Your Home’s Interior
Sure, it’s good to bring in sunlight to brighten up your living space. However, you run the risk of exposing your indoors to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, causing the colors of your furniture, paintings, ornaments and other items you hold dear to fade. A windows upgrade can prevent this. In particular, choose units that have low emissivity (low-E) glass capable of blocking infrared and UV rays while letting in natural light.
