- replacement windows
Got cold drafty windows? With the type of winter we are expecting this year in Northwest Indiana, old windows can make winter seem more harsh and cost you more money. Windows that aren't sealed properly or are old and inefficient can account for 35 to 40 percent of a home's heat loss. With heating bills on the rise, that can translate into big money.
Installing new replacement windows can be costly, but new windows should lower heating and a/c bills resulting in greater monthly utility savings. When it comes to home improvements, replacing windows should be at the top of the priority list. Window replacements can offer you a high return on investment in both savings heating and a/c bills, but also in the value that they add to your home.
How do you know when it’s time to replace old windows and start shopping for new energy efficient windows?
- Frost appears on the inside of window panes
- You feel a cold draft coming in through closed windows
- Windows don't open and close with ease
- Windows panes are separating from window or wood is rottting
- The windows haven't been replaced for 20 years or more
- Windows are single pane (instead of double)
- One big reason to consider window replacement is simply the high cost of heating bills.
Two things to consider when shopping for windows: 1) the style of the window is important. It can affect the overall look and value of your home. 2) Choose the right window for your climate. Vinyl replacement windows are a good option for both warm and cold climates because they insulate well.
