Replace Your Windows Because It’s a Good Investment: Here’s Why

This time of year as homeowners around the Twin Cities are buttoning up their houses to withstand another Minnesota winter, some folks are thinking about whether it’s time to replace their old windows.  But the question they often have is if it is a wise investment.

If you’ve thought about having new energy-efficient windows installed in your home, you may have wondered the same thing. Is it really worth the cost? Yes!  There are a number of benefits that come from replacing your windows, but did you know it is also one of the best paying returns on an investment? Of course, here are some of the other benefits you get from simply replacing the windows in your home.

Some of the Benefits of New Replacement Windows

The Indoor Comfort Levels Rise: One thing our customers notice right away is how much more comfortable it is inside their homes.  Old windows let outside air in as well as letting that indoor air out. So you get drafts and cold spots in the winter or hot spots in the summer. New energy-efficient windows create seals that keep the air where it belongs, and the drafts disappear.  That means you’ll feel warmer indoors in the winter without raising the thermostat.

Another comfort level factor is cutting down noise infiltration from outside.  The added insulation produced by today’s windows reduces sound transfer. So you’ll feel a little more peaceful and relaxed without the annoyance of sounds from the street. 

The Beauty of a Home Improves: With new windows, you get a better look and feel inside and outside of the home. We offer a variety of window styles and types that not only provide excellent energy efficiency but look great in the process. Beauty and curb appeal do make a difference when choosing the best windows for your home.

Better Functionality: When you have new windows in your home, you have better function. Maybe your old windows are a pain to clean because you’ve got to drag the ladder out and work your way around landscaping. Today’s windows are so easy to clean from the inside! Or maybe your old windows stick and are hard to open and close. Perhaps you’re thinking about your needs as you get older and wonder if those old double-hung windows are going to be a problem. May we suggest sliders or crank-out casements? Whatever issue you have with your current windows, we can suggest replacements that will solve those problems.

Yes, the replacement windows we install ARE a good investment – both financially and for the reasons above. Enjoy being inside your home in comfort. Enjoy the compliments because you’ve upped the beauty of your home. Enjoy lower energy bills.   You can benefit in the long run when you go with the best options.
