A window upgrade can be a costly endeavor, but it’s never a waste of money. While you may want to replace your old, unsightly units, the installation of new ones offers many practical purposes.
For Twin Cities Siding Professionals, these are the reasons new windows are a wise investment:
Saving on Energy
ENERGY STAR®-certified windows can keep heat loss to a minimum. They insulate against the cold in the winter and keep the sun from turning your interior into a furnace in the summer. Properly installed custom-made glass units are weathertight enough to effectively minimize draftiness and energy-wasting air leakage.
Considering that space heating and cooling costs account for more than 45% of an average American house’s energy bills, window replacement can be a cost-effective project.
Much like modern siding products, twenty first century windows require practically no maintenance. Many framing materials naturally repel water and are not susceptible to rot and fungal growth. In addition, many windows can retain their color longer.
Windows with Low-E coatings, argon gas fill and a warm-edge spacer system are less likely to “sweat” during winter. Condensation can cause interior water damage, exposing building elements, such as wallpaper and wooden flooring, to a high level of moisture consistently.
Twin Cities Siding Professionals understands that condensation-resistant windows can help reduce the need for costly home repairs over the long term.
Preventing Sun Damage
Did you know that energy-efficient windows can block a significant amount of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun? Eliminating UV rays keeps your interior items from fading. As a result, you may not need to change curtains, pieces of furniture or carpet as often.
