New Windows Can Save You Money All Year Long!
Fall is right around the corner, and now is a better time than ever to consider installing new windows in your home. Many people assume that window upgrades do little more than just boosting a home’s aesthetic value, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. With new windows, you can enjoy enhanced home performance while flooding your home with pleasing natural light in the process.
Not sure if a window upgrade is right for your home? Here are a few benefits to consider if you’re on the fence.
1. Improved Energy Efficiency
Most people believe that windows are more of an aesthetic feature than anything else. Sure, they allow us to peek into the outside world and can be opened to let in some fresh air, but other than that, they just look nice...right?
Wrong. New windows can play a crucial role in home energy efficiency, especially in comparison to outdated windows from the past. Many older windows aren’t properly sealed and allow for unwanted airflow to occur, even when they’re fully closed. With new, airtight windows installed throughout the home, you can expect savings on your energy bills, not to mention increased resale value.
2. Enhanced Home Comfort
At the end of the day, most people just want to return to a comfortable home. When the fall winds are ripping, however, drafts are sure to follow if the home isn’t sealed up tightly — this is where older windows tend to fail. While modern windows can help to stop drafts in their tracks thanks to argon filled spaces and double or triple pane glazing. Low-e windows help to reduce solar heat gain, too, ensuring that the home’s interior stays conditioned exactly the way you want it to be.
3. Frustration-Free Financing
Few things matter quite as much to most homeowners as saving money, especially when it comes to making home performance upgrades. Fortunately, there are a number of financing options available to California homeowners that can be used to purchase energy-efficient windows, including CaliforniaFIRST PACE Financing.
