Upgrade the Look of Your Long Island Home with Replacement Windows
If you’re thinking that the appearance of your windows doesn’t have a serious effect on the overall look of your home, take a moment to reconsider. Chances are, when looking at your home, it’s the windows your eyes are drawn to, so their appearance is a major player in deciding whether or not your home has the kind of curb appeal you want it to have, whether or not you’re planning to sell any time soon.
Like any other part of your home, older windows start to show their age eventually, and they do so in a number of ways from foggy glass wrought with tiny cracks that have the potential to expand into much larger, more unsightly ones to chipped paint and damaged grilles that show the ravages of time and weather.
You don’t have to resign yourself to living with unattractive windows dragging down the look of your entire home, and ultimately, your happiness in your home. Renewal by Andersen of Long Island has an comprehensive selection of windows and window options that can provide you with windows similar to your current ones, if you love them, or more daring options that will reinvent your home entirely. Regardless of your preferences, replacement windows are the key to increasing your Long Island home’s appeal and value.
Replacement Window Energy Efficiency
Not only can your new replacement windows give your home a style upgrade, but they can also save you money now and in the future simply by being as dramatically more energy efficient than your current windows. Through no extra work outside of purchasing these energy efficient replacement models, you may be able to dramatically lower the cost of your heating and cooling bills while also creating a more comfortable environment inside your home.
It’s likely that your current windows are less energy efficient than you would imagine, and are highly susceptible to issues like air leakage and heat loss. Losing heat through your windows is something that is very common, but easily avoidable with today’s energy efficient ENERGY STAR rated replacement windows. Also consider that, air leakage creates drafts and temperature irregularities within your home that, when combined with the heat loss, means you’re paying a lot of money to send heat or air conditioning out the window and let in unwanted cold or warm exterior air. Energy efficient replacement windows from Renewal by Andersen of Long Island can lower those bills by minimizing the heat your home loses and cutting back on the air leakage that can make your home uncomfortable.
Reduce Your Window Chores with Low-Maintenance Replacement Windows
You may not realize all of the extra effort that you are putting into the routine maintenance of your older windows. Not only are your older windows probably not equipped with the Easy-Clean technology of Renewal by Andersen’s replacement windows, but their age often leads to frames sticking shut and stubborn grime that is unyielding to even the fiercest scrubbing. Newer Fibrex composite window frames won’t call for the painting and scraping of your older ones, and you’ll be relieved to find that a previously frustrating chore can be so reduced and simplified.
