Things to Consider When Replacing Your Home's Windows

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.

New Windows are the Second Best Remodeling Investment

 

Cleaning-Double-HungAs the winter rages on the weather seems to get colder and colder, you might be asking yourself this one simple question, “Is replacing my windows a good idea?” Drafty windows can certainly be cause for concern. But window replacements are one of the best investments you can make in your home. Vinyl window replacement earns back 73% of it $14,284 average cost making it the second best remodeling investment a homeowner can make. 

As for saving money on heating and utility bills, dramatic upgrades, such as going from a single-pane glass window to a double-pane gas-filled window can cut energy costs by up to $465 dollars per year.

Top 3 Reasons to Replace Old Windows

Posted in Replacement windows, Window Contractor Indiana

New Replacement Windows Can Lower Utility Bills

double-hung-replacement-windowsAre you having trouble keeping the temperature regulated in your home with northern Indiana's crazy weather? New replacement windows from Trim A Seal can help maintain a constant temperature in your home by keeping what you want inside and everything else out. In order for windows to operate effectively you must have them well sealed with double or triple paned glass. Not only will you save on utility bills, you'll also improve your home's value and enhance curb appeal. We created a list of the top 3 reasons to replace your windows in 2014. Check them out below:
 
1. Save money on energy bills. By using quality windows you can ensure that your home uses less energy while keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. After having new windows installed, most customers experience a decrease in their monthly utility bills. When you add it up, the windows practically pay for themselves.
2. Old windows tend to be hazardous. Older windows could contain lead which is very dangerous to your health. Not only can you save money, you may be saving a life.
3. Older windows are typically single paned, which are not as beneficial as double and triple pane. Multi-paned windows keep moisture and heat out. They help filter out noise using air or non toxic gases which improves the window's insulating properties.
 
As you can see, there are a lot of reasons to replace your windows. Call the leading window installation company in Northwest Indiana today for a free consultation 1.800.217.6355. We look forward to hearing from you.
