What are the main reasons to replace your windows? While you may have different priorities than other homeowners, here are the leading factors that generally motivate discerning homeowners to retire their old windows:
Many Americans buy new windows to enhance the appearance of their homes. After all, window replacement is one of the few home improvements that can improve both your interior and exterior.
However, not every window style will work in every home, and choosing the wrong style can even have a discordant effect. Historical accuracy is the key. If you install windows consistent with the aesthetic of your home’s architecture, they can reinforce its distinctive character and increase its curb appeal.
Increasing Energy Efficiency
High-performance double-hung, casement and sliding windows can lower your heating and cooling costs throughout the year. Windows that meet the uncompromising performance standards set by ENERGY STAR® in your region will deliver excellent insulation and heat-gain reduction.
Bear in mind that not all ENERGY STAR–certified products will work well in every climate. If your location isn’t shaded on the ENERGY STAR label’s map, the windows might not affect your home’s energy efficiency at all. Be sure to seek professional help from experts like Renewal by Andersen® of Kentucky to ensure you pick the right windows for your home and local climate.
Improving the View
Bay, bow, specialty and picture windows can frame wonderful panoramas. The expansive glass area of these windows creates an illusion of space, making your interior feel bigger than it actually is.
At Renewal by Andersen of Kentucky, our windows are built with narrow framing to provide more glass and better views. Thanks to our Fibrex® frames, we can afford to do this without sacrificing the structural integrity of our made-to-order products.
