There comes a time when you need to replace the windows in your home; however, some homeowners may be on the fence about whether they should replace their old windows now or in the future. This blog post discusses a few great reasons why you should have your old windows professionally replaced sooner rather than later.
Save On Energy Costs
Older windows are generally only single or double pane, which means they don't do a great job of keeping the hot air where it needs to be – outside! This means that your air conditioner needs to work even harder to moderate the temperature in your home.
Thankfully, a great solution to this issue is to have your old windows replaced with new ones that are triple pane. Triple pane windows help to control the flow of energy and keep it where it needs to be. This in turn will lower your energy bills and help you to keep your home at the temperature you'd like.
Make Your Home Safer
Another great reason to replace your old windows with new ones is to make your home safer. Old windows are much less secure and are easier to break into. They are also more prone to weathering damage, whether it be from a storm or from consistent weathering, such as rain, snow, sun exposure, etc. The locks on older windows may also be flimsy and less secure.
In contrast, new windows are created with thick, reinforced glass that is not only difficult to break, but also resistant to weathering. The locks are incredibly secure as well, so you can feel safe when it comes to both burglary and weathering.
