Replacing old windows may require a significant investment from you. However, with replacement windows, you might just be able to save money in the long run. Here’s how.
Improved Energy Efficiency
Old, drafty windows are unreliable when it comes to maintaining or improving your home’s energy efficiency. These windows let your comfortable indoor air escape to the outside, so your HVAC system has to work harder to compensate in order to maintain your desired temperature. This leads to higher energy consumption and bills.
New windows, on the other hand, can help lower your energy bills throughout the year since they are designed with energy efficiency in mind. Nowadays, replacement windows have low-emissivity (low-E) coated glass as well as argon in between panes. These features help eliminate drafts and ensure your home is comfortable all year round.
Several window options today require minimal upkeep, so you don’t have to worry about high maintenance expenses. Windows manufactured by Renewal by Andersen® are made of Fibrex® material, which can resist rot, mold and decay. Fibrex does not need scraping or painting, and it performs well even with extreme temperature swings. It contracts and expands only a little, so you can be confident that it won’t get easily damaged by heat or cold. If you have this kind of window in your home, you won’t have to deal with frequent repairs. Just make sure to clean and inspect it regularly, and you can maximize your new window’s lifespan.
