Why Update With Modern Replacement Windows During the Fall on Long Island?
Although there is no one “best” time to upgrade to replacement windows, early fall offers mild weather with more moderate temperatures compared to the dead of winter or the hottest summer months. Many of you are already opening up the windows to catch the warm day breezes – great for curbing the heating bill and giving your home a good airing out.
Read on for 7 great reasons to replace aging windows now.
#1. Protect Your Home from Air & Water Damage. Keep air and moisture out of your house when the windows are closed. Aging windows that don’t close tight can let unwanted cold air and moisture into your home. Worse yet, gaps around your window frames could be letting moisture into your home’s structure, causing unhealthy mold and a breading ground for wood-destroying insects.
#2. Save on Energy Bills. Roughly 15 – 25 percent of your heating and cooling budget is lost through inefficient home windows. That translates to hundreds of dollars each year you could be saving – and spending on more important things – when you replace leaking windows with high-performance Energy Star certified fixtures.
#3. Lower Outside Noise. Compared to single pane home windows, insulated double pane windows – no matter the style – lower noise transfer from outside. Sliders, casements, awnings and fixed windows all filter ambient noise, reducing bothersome sounds that keep you awake at night, and demand you turn up the television louder than you’d like/
#4. Improve Resale Value. Window performance affects many areas of your life, and because they are an integral part of the building envelope, window condition directly impacts resell value. Depending on which survey you read, investment recovery ranges from around 73 – 90 percent. Who doesn’t want to increase their home’s property value?
#5. Natural Light. Natural light is both health-giving and dangerous. On one hand, we need plenty of sunlight to banish the blues and reduce the amount of artificial lighting we have to pay for. Natural light also has those harmful UV rays that cause furniture and carpet to wear out prematurely. Factory applied replacement window technology can reduce or virtually eliminate those harmful UV rays, so you get the benefits without the side effects.
#6. Safety & Security. Innovative designs deliver enhanced safety features. For example, double-hung windows with two movable sash allow you to lower the upper sash to protect young children from falling out an open window. There are also recessed locks and multi-point locking systems that deter would be invaders from attempting a break in.
#7. Low Maintenance Durability. Advanced technology and Fibrex composite frame materials ensure modern replacement windows are durable and strong. Expect your windows to look and perform perfectly, without extensive maintenance, as long as you live in your home. How’s that for peace of mind? Oh, and a superior warranty just makes the deal sweeter.
