The windows of your home provide you with a portal to view the outside world. No matter how high-quality they were on the date of installation, your windows will eventually need to be replaced because of extended exposure to changing weather and regular usage wear and tear.
At Element Windows, we’ve helped replace windows for dozens of our neighboring homeowners in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Everyone knows to replace a window when a baseball goes through it but we recommend you consider these five beneficial reasons to prioritize replacing your windows.
1. Boost the Energy Efficiency
Modern homes are designed with energy efficiency in mind. The entire layout of your home was carefully crafted in a way to maximize energy efficiency. If your windows are damaged, you could be losing a good amount of energy. Even if your windows aren’t damaged, if they’re too old, they’re probably not very energy efficient, and you could benefit from replacing them.
2. Extend Your HVAC System’s Life
If you have energy inefficient windows, the HVAC system in your home or business will be forced to run more often to maintain desired temperatures. The more your HVAC is running, the more often you’ll have to clean it and pay to have it serviced. With your HVAC running all the time, you’re also going to notice a hefty increase to your energy bill. All of this unnecessary usage will put wear and tear on your system as well, causing you to have to repair it more often and replace it sooner. What is a viable solution? Install energy efficient windows to drastically reduce energy waste and alleviate excess pressure on your HVAC system.
3. Make Your Home Safer
Over time, the locks on a window can get worn down while glass can become weakened or cracked, which leaves you, your home, and your family susceptible to burglars. There are a number of modern window options designed to prevent intruders from the outside. If you’re worried about safety and your home or business has older windows, consider replacing them with more secure options.
4. Dampen the Outside Noise
Do loud noises from outside come through your windows even when they’re closed? If so, then upgrading your windows may be just what you need to avoid future disruptions and distractions. We carry a number of noise blocking/noise canceling windows, so if you’re having issues with outside sounds, it’s nothing our team of New Jersey window specialists won’t be able to resolve.
5. Add to Your Home’s Resale Value
Just like with most parts of your home, upgrading or replacing your windows will improve your home’s resale value. This is especially true if you are improving the overall energy efficiency of the home. Whether you’re planning on selling your home in the near future, or simply want to invest in your property, you’ll still see the benefits from upgrading your windows when looking out to your yard or down at your property appraisal.
