If you think about it, these days, you can change just about anything in your life: cars, homes, spouses! The list goes on and on. Same goes for the windows in your home. If you don’t like them, get rid of them! However, when it comes to getting new windows, your reasoning should go a little deeper than that.
If you’re considering installing new windows in Roseville, CA, you may want to scrutinize the age and condition of the frame. In fact, recent studies by home construction professionals point out that that if you live in an older home and your home’s windows are between 15 and 30 years old, you may notice signs of increased wear and tear, which can lead to poor energy efficiency and less-than-flattering appearances.
Old windows often become bowed or bent, creating pockets of air infiltration. Old windows often leak during rainy days, which creates condensation between the windowpanes. And, as long as we’re at it, heat loss from inefficient windows can account for 10 to 25 percent of your home’s heating bills.
A Few Words About Condensation
Some windows just plain insulate better than others. With double or even triple-paned construction, windows are able to deliver a degree of thermal performance increasingly on par with that of exterior walls.
If your home’s heating or cooling bills are too high and continue to increase year after year, installing new windows can be one step towards improved efficiency. Homeowners who replace single-pane windows with energy efficient windows will immediately notice a significant reduction in their heating and cooling bills.
Such innovations help to eliminate drafts and minimize energy loss, enabling homeowners to enjoy more efficient, less expensive heating and cooling. And go figure: a window that blocks out uncomfortably cold or hot air also works to block out sound.
Like Money in the Bank
It’s important to note that many homeowners consider replacing windows to add to their home’s resale value. While few, if any, home improvement investments net a positive return, homeowners who install new windows can reasonably expect to recoup about 60 percent of that investment in terms of improving their home’s overall resale value.
